Description

Widgets, like native applications, can be easily localized. Localization requires widget developers to provide localized resources, such as strings, images, language-specific layouts.

Some usability guidelines

  • Languages which are read from right-to-left like Arabic, should also be handled.
  • When needed, images and icons should also be localized.
  • Should support native currency, number and date.

How it works

  • Localized resources(e.g. strings, icons) are provided in a separate directory named as xx.lproj, where xx are two characters identifying the language.
  • Widget engine (WRT library) searches for language variants whenever

@import directive is used
Any resource is loaded
"src" attribute is used

  • Localizing "info.plist"

Provide language directory, e.g. fi.lproj
Provide InfoPlist.strings and define the localized strings there.
