Many people are intimidated by localization (l10n) and internationalization (i18n) but they don’t have to be—Android provides many tools out of the box to aide you in global domination. Learn how to provide alternate resources for different locales, how to be flexible in your layout design, and what to do when the built-in tools aren’t quite enough, like defining custom date formats. We will also cover a Gradle integration with Smartling, a paid service, which allows updating translations to be as easy as a push and a pull.
