The SDK contains language folders for each language supported. For a list of supported languages, see LiveEngage System Requirements and Language Support. Each folder contains LPLocalizable.strings file for a specific language.
The example below contains four language folders:
- en.lproj: English strings (used in case we do not support the host app/device language)
- fr.lproj: French strings
- pt.lproj: Portuguese strings
- pt-PT.lproj: Portuguese (Portugal) strings
You can override the string localization of any supported language in LiveEngage. Create LPLocalizable.strings files for relevant languages inside your app, which includes the keys to override.
Create and localize a strings file and add languages
In your app, go to New file > Strings file > Create.
Create a file called LPLocalizable.strings.
Add a new key, for example, if you want to override the SDK English string of
"send" = "<ANY NEW VALUE>";
Tap the LPLocalizable.string file and open the file inspector.
Go to the Localization section and Tap Localize.
Open project settings, on the Info tab, under Localizations, press the plus (+).
