Translating System Messages and Runtime Texts

In translating applications and templates into different languages, it's easy to focus on the visible elements like labels and user interfaces. However, for a truly immersive and user-friendly experience, it's equally essential to translate system messages and runtime texts.

Step 4: Publish the Application

After completing the translation of system messages and runtime texts, publish the application. The updated version will be accessible to all users in the newly selected language.

While translating labels and user interfaces is a significant step toward creating a multilingual application, the devil is in the details, and that's where system messages and runtime texts come into play. These seemingly small elements have a significant impact on the overall user experience, making it essential to provide them in the user's preferred language.
