How Developers Are Dramatically Improving Downloads And Revenue By Tailoring Their Apps To Foreign Markets

Perhaps one of the simplest techniques for upping your app downloads is localisation or internationalization, which basically involves reworking your app to fit into a local market, with the most obvious step — but far from the only only one — being to translate your app into the native language.


Doing so can have an extremely positive effect on an app’s popularity in a local market, with analytics firms reporting increases of over 100% in downloads and 25% in revenues.

Translation on its own may be the biggest factor in shooting your app up the market rankings, but it is only the first step in the localisation and internationalization process.
