  2. 2. INTRODUCTION As the market for apps increases exponentially it becomes imperative to adapt the existing and new apps to the local market to expand user base. To this end app developers have tried to localize their apps to reach out to greater user base. But what are the advantages of localizing an app? Localizing an app makes it more user friendly and relatable. It might involve translation to many local languages which is an ongoing task. If an app is not localized, local users may not relate to it and ultimately shift to a more user-friendly app. Hence localization of an app is extremely essential. This leads us to choosing the right locatiosation tools to be used for this purpose. ©2016 TechAhead
