Evaluate Session


Much of Apple's market is non-English-speaking. Making your application available in multiple languages is not just community-minded, it makes good business sense.

This talk illustrates the basics of how to internationalize Cocoa applications, and techniques you can adopt in localizing strings, resources, and user interfaces. It first explains how to internationalize file resources, including nib files, and how to retrieve localized variants using NSBundle methods. Crawford then discusses localizing strings, issues with localized file paths, and how the nibtool command-line utility can facilitate localization of the user interface.
