Language has always been an essential driver of business growth and it’s no different when it comes to mobile apps adoption and growth within your enterprise. In today’s global economy, every enterprise needs to conduct business in the local language of the country and/or region and the enterprise business applications are typically geared to operate in different languages along with localization. There is no reason enterprise mobile apps should be any different.
Multilingual mobile app – challenges
However building a multilingual mobile app with localization takes time and effort. A typical approach is to use 3rd party software and embed localized language tokens into the app. This may be a relatively decent exercise when 2 or 3 languages are to be supported for a few apps. But when the time comes to scale up to 10’s and 100’s of apps for an enterprise, to be operational in 10’s of languages, it’s no small feat to include multi-lingual capabilities into each app with all the localization features. For e.g., the width of a drop-down list may change depending on the translated language and it may spoil the overall user-interface of the app. Similarly date, time-preference, location etc., needs to be managed appropriately and displayed correctly in the app. As a result, most organizations support minimal languages, typically one (English) when it comes to enterprise mobile apps and it impacts their user adoption.
