    This is a very helpful list but it should have an alphabetical order.

    1. Laura

      Good idea. We sorted it out, Maddalena.

  2. Yuri Belov

    The two bottom boxes on the left are in French instead of English.

    1. Laura

      We’ll fix this soon. Thanks, Yuri!

      1. Laura

        Fixed now!

  3. Alejandro Sincich

    You should copy & paste the whole table into e.g. an OpenOffice Calc sheet – then you can A-Z sort the columns as you like.

  4. Alejandro Sincich

    Thanks to ICL for so useful data!

  5. Maura Affinita

    Excellent idea!
    Must be in alphabetical order.

    1. Laura

      It’s in alphabetical order now. Thanks!

  6. Petteri

    Thanks a lot! How about XML version of this? E.g. TMX or some glossary format.

  7. Petteri

    And additionally, have you checked with e.g Nokia how Swipe is translated in their new devices ( http://swipe.nokia.com ). Some of those translations seem to provide directional information in the translation which is not correct.

    1. Yuriy Oleksiychuk

      Unfortunately, different manufacturer tend to use their own terminology to be unique. I think iPhone, Android, WM7 and Symbian may have their own terms for one and the same function or feature. I believe this glossary will develop and will segment into the OS-specific categories. As regards the instructional strings, their translation seems quite appropriate to me.

      1. Laura

        In fact, his terminology is iPhone specifics, not including Symbian, Android, etc.

        1. Yuriy Oleksiychuk

          Then, maybe, it will be more appropriate to rename this page into something like “iPhone/iPad App Keywords”? What do you think? Because the word “mobile” may create certain confusion.

          1. Laura

            We changed the first sentence to avoid confusions: “Not sure how to translate basic terminology in iPhones?”. Any comment about a specific term, you’re welcome to tell us about which the word/phrase is, the correct translation and a reference. Thanks!

        2. Yuriy Oleksiychuk

          This way it will be surely more understandable.

  8. Luigi Cisana

    Very useful for developers and translators, Thank you!

    One suggestion for the practical use of the table:
    It would be great if you could provide a selection for the favorite languages, e.g. English, Spanish, France, German.

  9. Luigi Cisana

    On my Site I use drupal7 (php, mySQL). Using a database would make it much more easier to handle the table.

  10. Daniele

    In Italian “achievements” is not translated, becoming simply “achievement” (singular), not “risultati”.

    BR,
    Daniele

    1. Fran

      Hello Daniele,

      Our Italian experts beg to differ as per terminology used on the App Store and their user guide:
      “Iphone User Guide page 184 (English version)

      Achievements

      Some games reward you with bonus points for specific achievements.
      See the possible achievements for a game: Tap Games, choose a game, then tap Achievements.
      For each achievement, Game Center shows how many bonus points are awarded, and whether you’ve completed the achievement. The total points awarded for your achievements appear at the top. You can get bonus points for a specific achievement only once.
      You may also be able to view achievements from within a game.

      iPhone User Guide page 198 (Italian version)

      Risultati

      Alcuni giochi ti premiano con dei punti di bonus se raggiungi particolari risultati.
      Vedere i possibili risultati per un gioco: tocca Partite, scegli un gioco e tocca Risultati.
      Per ciascun risultato, Game Center mostra quanti punti di bonus vengono assegnati e se hai completato il risultato. Il punteggio totale assegnato per i tuoi risultati appare in alto. Puoi guadagnare i punti di bonus per un determinato risultato solo una volta.
      Potresti riuscire a vedere i risultati anche dall’interno di un gioco.”

  11. Luigi Cisana

    “Keyboard Clics” is sometime translated differently. I’ve found a few translations in the Apple’s User Guide:

    Spanish: Clics del teclado
    German: Tastaturanschläge (I prefer: Tastaturklick)
    French: Clics du clavier
    Italian: Clic tastiera

  12. Sandra

    Hi!
    Just a quick thing… “number” in Spanish, according to the RAE, should be “n.º”

    http://buscon.rae.es/dpdI/

    Apéndice 2: Lista de abreviaturas

    Thanks a lot for posting this glossary, it’s so useful!

    1. Laura

      Thanks for the feedback, Sandra. We’ll check on this soon.

  13. Animion

    There are words like “left”, “up”, “next” etc. but no “back”

    1. Fran

      Hi Animiom,

      Noted to be added on the next update!

      Thanks

      Fran

  14. Emília Ribeiro Nunes

    Hi!
    You have a list of words translated into portuguese. Can you please specify if it is Portuguese from Portugal or Portuguese from Brazil.
    Thanks
    Emília

  15. Free Life Apps

    Please add the translation for words:
    – More
    – More apps
    – More games
    These are common for cross-promoting other apps/games

    Would be nice to see some other languages too – Korean, Indian, Italian

    1. Laura

      We will be adding them soon! ;)

    2. ankier

      This has now been done :-)

  16. David Janner

    This is a nice list. I’ve found that by properly localizing app keywords, I’ve managed to get a 7x increase in traffic!!! Pretty incredible.

    (I’ve written up my results and methods here: http://makeappmag.com/iphone-app-localization-keywords/)

    It would be nice if you had such a service – because you actually to choose the “right” keywords you need to do KW research in the specific language – just translating is not the right way to go about it, from a traffic perspective.

  17. Nic

    Thanks for the great blog – very helpful.

    Does anyone know where I might be able to find translations for other ‘game terminology’? e.g. “Game Over” “Upgrade” (as in upgrading your character’s specs) and so forth?

    Note – very disappointed to see that the (free) version of Angry Birds Star Wars isn’t localised… at …. all….

    I believe not localisaing is very rude and disrespectful to those markets that you’re selling to.

  18. Laura

    Hi Nic, Thanks for your comment!
    We can add new terminology to this list under suggestions. Feel free…

  19. Nic

    Some other ‘gaming’ terminology to localise:

    “Game Over”
    “High Score”
    “Score”
    “Upgrade” (e.g. to upgrade your character’s stats)
    “Pick-ups”
    “Rank” (e.g. a player’s rank)
    “Level” (game level)
    “Multiplier” (multiple hits)
    “Tap to Start” (for mobile apps)
    “Play” (to start a game)

    I’ll post more when they come to mind….
