Out translations have just come out on Android 🙂 Thanks!
A couple of observations/suggestions, if I may:

  • the only way to make it show up in languages which are not the system language of Android is to use an additional app to create a “fake locale”. Given that WP supports way more languages than Android does, I really think it’s time for a manual language selection option in the Settings. Most “normal” users won’t know about force-locale – or even what a locale is – and so won’t know how to look for a fix. I know space in settings is always at a premium but this – from an l10n perspective – is really a vital usability issue. This is especially true on non-Android systems. There is no app on Windows Phone or iPhone that even allows me to fake a locale, so even if I translated the UI for iPhone, no-one could access it because you cannot select the UI language manually.
  • somewhat related, it seems to pull some data (the dates) from the OS too, so because the OS in my case is English, the stats page shows localized UI but the dates in English. Perhaps these could be added to the po so the UI is consistent?

Other than that I’m very pleased 🙂
