Reach Users Across the Globe with OneSky

December 20, 2011

The impact of mobile reaches far beyond the shores of the US. In fact, many international markets consume mobile web and download apps more aggressively than US users. And only 10 in 123 Mac App stores speak English, leaving apps with English-only versions a vast untapped user base. For developers, this means it is ever more important to make sure your apps are accessible by users across the globe.

The OneSky app service seeks to help developers with language translation for their mobile apps, giving them the ability to easily localize apps to international markets. Their global agency network supports over 70 languages including very specific local languages, such as simplified Chinese (used in China) and Traditional Chinese (used in both Hong Kong and Taiwan). Crowd sourced translation is also available so developers can engage users and provide a language quality that comes from native speakers that understand the local cultural elements.

If you havent localized your content yet, you should. Check out a case study we did with Runtastic on how localizing content increased downloads by 100%.

More on OneSky:

  • A develop-friendly platform speaking many languages–iOS, Android, Ruby, Python, and PHP—and built specifically to manage translation projects for mobile apps and websites. There are no sourcing agencies with back and forth email communications so you can save time and effort.
  • They offer a complete translation offering with their global agency network, crowdsourced translations, and machine translation integration with Google and Bing. With crowdsourcing, developers can engage their communities in Facebook, Twitter, and Viber (who are a current OneSky customer).
  • With the online nature of mobile apps, translations are no longer a one-time process and OneSky’s API can ensure translations are sent directly to apps ensuring continuous updates so users always see the latest version.

Using OneSky is simple: sign up for the service, upload your strings either through direct upload or API, get translated, download the strings directly or through API, and get continuous updates and improvement. Check out the workflow image below:
