If you are a MonoTouch developer then you should already be familiar with the two subjects of this post:
- Miguel's awesome TweetStation open-source/MonoTouch Twitter client (also on iTunes); and
- the recent release of the Professional iPhone Development with MonoTouch/c# book from Wrox
NOTE: Miguel had already made a good start building an internationalized app - many of his strings were wrapped in a
Locale.GetText()method which was easy for me to work with. None of his code needed to change except for Locale.Get() and Locale.Format() to add
NOTE2: this was a MACHINE TRANSLATION - of course you would arrange for a real person to translate your apps before taking them to the AppStore!
NOTE3: I have not translated 100% of Miguel's app - this is for demonstration purposes at the moment.
NOTE4: It's called TwitEstaçion because "TweetEstaçion" is too long for the iPhone home screen, and gets shortened unreadably. I don't speak Spanish so who knows if that makes any sense at all!
UPDATE: a few more screenshots... (again, apologies for the machine translation:)
