What languages should I translate into first?

We’ve analyzed the number of native-speakers who are Internet users by native language, the total volume of online sales, and Google Play revenue by region. This resulted in the following top 10 languages for localization:

  • English – United States, United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia
  • Chinese — China and Taiwan (Simplified and Traditional Chinese)
  • Japanese — Japan
  • French — France, Canada, and Belgium
  • German — Germany and Belgium
  • Russian — Russia
  • Korean — South Korea
  • Spanish — Spain, Mexico, and Argentina
  • Portuguese — Brazil

Ultimately, the choice of languages depends on your product type and business objectives. For instance, localization into niche languages can sometimes offer better marketing prospects than targeting mainstream locales. So always keep your product in mind.

What languages do you translate into?

We translate into more than 100 languages, including the most popular (English, Chinese, Japanese, German, French, Spanish), and rarer ones, and even dialects. You can view the list of languages and translation rates here.

We can find a translator in almost any language that the client needs, depending on his product and goals. Sometimes localization into niche languages can offer better prospects than localization into mainstream languages.

In case some rare language is not on the list, we can help with searching and recruiting linguists.
