FIf your app is judged one of the three best localized apps created between September 2013 and the end of December 2013, it could win you one of three prize packs containing Asha phones and accessories.
First, register for and attend a Nokia Asha Java or web apps webinar or any Nokia Developer webinar held between 16 September and 29 December 2013. You may find the Localising apps for new Nokia Asha phones webinar (25 Sep 2013, 3pm UTC) helpful if your aren't familar with the localisation process; you can view the session's slides here.
Then create a localisation of your best app into at least one of the following popular Nokia Asha languages:
If you create more localisations it will add more weight to you entry, but quality will be the judges' primary concern — so one really good localization will win out over several not so good attempts.
In localizing your app you must not rely on automatic translation products or services, such as Google Translate. If you don’t have a translation service or resources, we suggest that you look at a service such as getlocalization.com where you have options to obtain crowd sourced translation or use a translation agency. To help the process along if you can also sign up to getlocalization.com here, you will get an extra 30 day added to the normal trial period, giving you a full 60 days to try out the features.
Once these things have been done, email details of the webinar you attended and the Nokia Store URL for your app to firstname.lastname@example.org by 11:59:59 p.m. (GMT) on 29 December 2013.
Here are the entry rules:
