iOS Apprentice Checklists Tutorial: Confusion about language


I am currently working on the Checklists App, and on Page 75, it says:

Don’t type anything into the button’s Title field. The Cancel and Done buttons are built-in button types that automatically use the proper text. If your app runs on an iPhone where the language is set to something other than English, these predefined buttons are automatically translated into the user’s language.

But I tried to change the language of the Simulator to Spanish and Hindi as well, and the Bar Button Item’s text didn’t get translated into those languages.

I am just curious to know if there is something else that is also required in order to change the language of Bar Button Item’s text.


I believe you need to configure your app’s project settings to specify each language (localization) you intend to support. Otherwise your app will only support the default language.
