Mobile App Localization

Localization is the process of truly customizing your app for an intended target market with a different language and culture. The goal of localization to make the adaptation look like the content and user experience was actually created for the target market.

If you want to tap into huge markets such as that of Turkey, you need to localize your app.

Localizing app in Turkish

Turkey’s economic growth is an attractive factor for many global businesses. If you want to launch your mobile app in Turkey, you need to localize the app in the Turkish language. The Turkish language has varying dialects and you can check your app’s analytics to see which part of Turkey gives you the most downloads. This way you can cater to them and increase the traction of your mobile app. When translating your content in Turkish, you have to ensure that you take care of the cultural nuances. These include symbols, currencies, characters, any cultural references, and colors, etc. All these will have to be localized according to Turkey.
