Follow this tutorial to quickly know how to translate Android app to any other or your native language. If you are having a hard time understanding apps which are not in the language you are familiar with then this article is for you.
Whenever you install an app, it will check your device’s locale settings so it knows what language it should use. The majority of the apps that I have come across with do that, but if it’s not available in your language, it will default to English. But, what if English is not your native language?
Don’t worry; you won’t have to use the app in a language that not your native tongue. Thanks to this guide you will be able to use that app in the language you want, and may even afterward write to the developer asking that the app is translated.
Before you read any further, you should know that for this to work you’re going to need a rooted Android device, Android 5.0 or higher installed, Xposed Framework installed and Unknown sources enabled.
Easily Translate Android App Into Other Language
Let’s get the ball rolling, and the first thing you need to do is to head on over to the Download section in the Xposed Installer app and look for AllTrans. When you’ve found it tap on the top result and swipe over to the tab that says Versions.
Choose Download and then tap on Install when you are asked to do it. Now, enable the module and reboot your Android device to complete the process. Thanks to a service called Yandex, AllTrans can translate your app to another language. You will need to create an account with Yandex if you don’t already have one.
So, you have your account all set up now. You should be taken to a page where you can create an API key. Creating this API is important because it’s what allows AllTrans to use the Yandex translating service. Make sure that you’ve clicked on the box where it says that you agree to the terms of service.
Congrats! You should now have your API key and now make sure you copy it. Remember to create a backup of that key since you never know when you might need it. Now, it’s time to go back to AllTrans. Open the app and head on over to the tab that says Global Settings.
Tap where it says Enter Yandex Translate Subscription Key. You’ll be prompted to enter the API you were given before and when you’ve pasted it or entering it, tap on OK.
How to Adjust the Translation Options
In the Global Settings tab, scroll down and find the Translate from Language and Translate to Language. They’re going to be right on top of each other so you won’t have to waste time scrolling to find them.
Tap on Translate from Language the language the app is in. It’s usually set to English, but not always. Now, tap on the Translate To Language and select the language you want the app to be in.
Slide on over to the Apps to Translate tab and select the apps you want to translate. When you’re past that step, you will finally be able to read that stubborn app in your preferred language. If you notice that the app is not changing to your native tongue, then you will need to close and re-open the app for the changes to take effect.
