Help to get Best Practices to make an Multi language Smart APP


(Ule) #1

Hi.

Could you help to get some good practices to make a multilanguage app.

its possible to make a list with some keys and replace in every text

[“en”:[“Title1”:“This is title 1”,“Title2”: “This is title 2”,“Title3”:“This is title 3”, …],
“sp”:[“Title1”:“Este es el título 1”,“Title2”: “Este es el título 2”,“Title3”:“Este es el título 3”,…]
]

any suggestions ?

Great question. Ideally “localization” (language, units, left-to-right, right-to-left), etc., needs to be a fundamental part of the entire Platform, including a set of API’s for SmartApps and Device Type Handlers.

I’m betting SmartThings has a major initiative for this in the works … and/or some interim practices because they already are working on South Korean, etc…
