Feed Sponsor: Babble-on App Localization

This week’s Six Colors sponsor is Babble-on App Localization. A lot of our readers are amazing iOS (and Android? Windows, really?) developers creating remarkable apps—in English. But what about the other six billion people on earth? Babble-on can help you translate your app into every language of the App Store.

Babble-on is a small shop based out of San Francisco that caters to devs who really care about their international users. This is not Google Translate, but a team of professional, native-speaking translators who specialize in apps. While other companies offer varying price-versus-quality tiers for localization, Babble-on has just one level: expert. They can even help you (re)write your app description in English.

Babble-on is offering 10% off your first app localization project if you sign up for their free developer portal by December 31, 2014. That gives you helpful pseudolocalizations and other tools to prepare your app for internationalization.

And if you aren’t quite sure how to localize your iOS app, check out this free tutorial for internationalization with Xcode 6 hot off the presses.
