Linguan greatly simplifies localizing your Mac and iOS apps. It gives you an intelligent editor for all strings files contained in your Xcode project.

You get warned about duplicate tokens or missing translations. Then you can export and e-mail all missing tokens for a specific language to your translator, who can also use Linguan for filling in the translations or use his text editor of choice.

When you get the translators results back Linguan automatically merges the results into your project, even if the tokens originated from multiple different strings files.

Linguan is the most fun way to clean up your translations.

This app was created by people who are using it every day to localize their apps: Peer Assembly, BytePoets and Cocoanetics.

Great app!! Greatly simplifies localization. (one small bug)

This is a great app. It is great for managing localizations. we hav 12 languages in our app and we can update strings with ease!!

Definitely work the purchase!!

One small issue: I cant seem to remove strings from the files. As in, I can't remove one individual tag and all of the localizations en masse. The app seems to do show the removal in the Linguan UI. But the files are not modified on disk, even after saving. Hope you can fix this!!

I will still continue to use this app. It's great even with the small bug.

Could use support for multiple targets

We have an iOS app with multiple targets (main application, today extensions, etc). It would be nice if Linguan could generate individual .strings files for each target.


Really want to like this app. It used to work great, but now seems to just hang whenever I open my project. No log output, no crash, spinner just sits there.
