Localizing Windows Phone apps: New terminology and Style Guides posted

Another 15 localization style guides for developing international Windows Phone apps have just been made available by the Windows Phone team.

Style guides provide instructions to help ensure that your app speaks to the user in the same tone, style and level of formality as Windows Phone itself. For example, should you say please or address the user as you and what level of formality is appropriate; should you use Sie or du in German? And how do you abbreviate words for a smartphone screen?

Translations of the individual terms and phrases, such as live tile, hub, pinch or stretch are also available through the Microsoft Language Portal online search.



If you want to see the full list then please visit the Microsoft Language Blog. The Greek version can be found here.{jcomments on}
