I’m not sure I understood how google play works. I have an app that has description and listing in English. Now let’s say someone who speaks arabic views my app in the google play store, will the app be automatically translated using google translate to Arabic? Or will it appear in english anyways?
A related question : does adding translations increase your Google play ranking for the countries associated with the languages added ? (even if this is gibberish ?)
And same question for the in-app strings.
Wow, ok I didn’t see that one coming, 2x - 3x is pretty insane, I will add it now lol with google translate!
Do you have any pointers when using the google translate and adding it to the app store’s listing?
I’ve read many times people advising not to use Google translate on your strings. Going against this advice I did it for Russian localisation to see if it increased the number of Russian downloads, and it seems it has. I’ve had no reviews or emails about poor translation so perhaps it’s not so bad. I’m using apps with poor English but it doesn’t bother me if the app does what it’s supposed to (looking at you Go Team).
