Delivering your Appivo app in different languages is an important capability when app users have different primary languages. Using the language features the developer can quickly translate the page content to all the configured languages. If an app contains multiple languages, it will attempt to present end-users with the appropriate translation based on user user preferences or device locale. Screen titles, button labels, menu items and more, can all be translated. If an app does not contain a matching translation for a user, the default language will be displayed. Translated strings can be entered manually, or via exporting and importing a spreadsheet.


Click on New Language, a new page opens > Select a language.

New Language

Select the language of your preference from the drop down menu to quickly translate the app content. Once selected a new page will appear.

Selected Language

The navigate section displays all the components of an application that can be translated. The contents under Navigation are created dynamically as the app is built.

Configure and navigate the Language menu as described in the table below:

User Interface
User Interface represents all the User Interfaces which are present in the app, and it displays the list of labels, text fields, etc. present in the UI Views.
Model represents the name of data models contained in the app.
Counters represents the translated value of the Counter name which we define in the data models.
Feature represents the translated values for the words defined in Features.
Custom represents the list of those values which we have added in the Text section in the app, you can define their translated value here.
Terms represents the text which is marked as a Term, the list of those terms are visible in the Terms section and you can add its translated value here.

Import Excel and Export Excel

Translating strings can sometimes be very time consuming. Another way to translate an app is to use the export/import feature present in the Language section. First export an excel file, update the strings, and then import it back. This is useful when working with a 3rd party translation service.
