New Feature: Translations

01/07/2014 Posted by Brandon

Ever since we’ve launched one of our biggest surprises has been the percentage of users that have come from outside the US. It’s been way higher than what we expected!

It’s been a blast to interact with customers all over the world and look down the list of countries where Knack apps are being used.

Of course, this also means a lot of requests for translations.

Even though you can use your own language for all the field and scene names, there are still plenty of words and phrases built in to the app that are stuck in English.

We’ve slowly been working on a translation system and today we’re launching an official setting that you can change per app. You can access this in your application settings:

We’re starting with a small list of languages that a few of our awesome Knack customers have helped us with:

  • Danish
  • German
  • Portuguese
  • Spanish

Update (April 2013): we’ve since added French, Italian, and Swedish!

These translations are definitely a work in progress. If you spot any English phrases that haven’t been translated, or see any translation that you think should be improved please get in touch.

Other Translations

We’re working on other languages but we don’t have any set ETA.

If you want to help expedite your language translations, we’ve created a form that can be created to help provide translations:
