Translate your Siberian – add languages

How do the translation work in Siberian?

When you add a translation in your Siberian, they are automatically taken into account in your app.

You do not need to recompile, regenerate the APK or republish it on the stores.

Thus, your app will automatically be translated when you will open it next time (you have to close and open the app again to see the modifications).

However, the language of the app is based on the language of your phone. That means if you add a new language in your backoffice but the phone is turned into another language, the app will use the default language: english.

For instance, let say that you added the Spanish language to your backoffice:
If your phone language is Russian, the app will use the English default language.
If your turn your phone into Spanish language, the app will be displayed in Spanish language.

Moreover, you cannot select a language into your app neither force a specific language to your users. The app will always use the phone language and use the translations you set in your backoffice (or use the default English language if the user’s phone language is not translated in your backoffice).
