Localization of questions and answers for a quiz app.
The main challenge was to adapt or make understandable some questions, relying heavily on American culture, to a French user in the character limited space. Questions had to be short, to the point and easy to understand.
Here is a point developers should take notice of: leave enough space in your interface as many languages such as French or German take up to 30% more space than English. Translators have a way with words, but sometimes, no matter how hard we try, there is not enough space.
Language combination: English to French
