iOS Dev Nugget 103 Testing Localization Using Launch Arguments


Need to run a code review on your codebase? Hire me

App localization is important, but tedious to test. One quick way is test localizations in the simulator, using launch arguments. In Xcode, click on Edit Scheme > Run > Arguments and add the following to Arguments Passed On Launch:

-AppleLanguages (en)

Replace en with the localization (zh, es, etc) you want to test e.g.

Simplified Chinese:
    -AppleLanguages (zh)

    -AppleLanguages (de)

    -AppleLanguages (fr)
