Localization

In this topic

The ArcGIS Android SDK uses English as the default language for UI components, e.g. text in Pop-ups. We provide a set of UI localization strings for you to use in your apps.

UI Popup localization

Steps to add localization to your apps UI Popups.

  • Download the SDK
  • Extract the SDK archive to disk
  • All the supported resource values are in the res/ folder
  • Copy the res/values/arcgis_ui_strings.xml file to your apps res/values folder
  • Copy the language you want to support from the res/ folder to your apps res/ folder

Example

If you want to localize your apps UI Popups to support Italian you would do the following:

  • Copy the res/values/arcgis_ui_strings file to your apps res/values folder
  • Copy res/values-it/ folder to your apps res/ folder
