Chat Localization Setup
Localizing Kommunicate iOS SDK is a two-step process:
- Download the sample
Localizable.stringsfile from here.
- Then copy-paste all the text entries from above
Localizable.stringsfile in your project's
Localizable.stringsfile after modifying the values in your application's supported language.
To know more about adding language support in iOS, you can read Apple's documentation here
We also have an option to pass a custom localization file name. If you want to keep all Kommunicate SDK related keys in a separate file, then pass the name of your file like this:
// Add this in the AppDelegate's didFinishLaunchingWithOptions method
Kommunicate.defaultConfiguration.localizedStringFileName = "SampleKommunicateLocalizable"
RTL - Right to Left support
Few languages such as Arabic, Hebrew, and Persian are written from Right to Left. RTL support is necessary to accommodate them. Kommunicate also supports the languages written in the Right to Left direction.
To test the RTL support, change the phone language to Arabic or Hebrew and open the Kommunicate chat/sample app to see the changes.
