Hi Rob,

i would be happy if there would be a "always working" workaround for example with help of the apktool.

 

Corona should provide a formal & reliable way to do this!

Warning:

At the moment apktool isn't compatible with APK's generated with the Corona SDK. Unfortunately there's not much we can do about it since using apktool is a bit of a hack, and has never been officially supported.

Is there any update on this?? We are not able to locallize corona app name for android till now.. This should b handled.. as it is a major feature for every client who want to made his app multilingual.

 

Thanx in advance

AFAIK this isn't supported yet. I'm not actively developing with Corona SDK anymore, so you'll have to either wait for a reply from Corona staff or contact them directly about this issue.

On Android, your only option is to make a separate build per locale, each with a different localized app name that you enter into the Corona Simulator's build window.  Google Play does support multiple APKs for the same version code, so, this is possible to do.  Admittedly, it's a bit tedious, but for some Corona developers who have to localize their image assets too and need to keep their APK under 50 MB, they kind of need to do this anyways.

Thanks @ingemar and @Joshua for your response..

I do have a query about this solution.

@Joshua if i do upload 5 apk's to google.. Does user have to install each app with required language or all apps would be downloaded once..
Also what would happened if i change device language after installing build from google??

You know what, I'm wrong.  Google Play doesn't support uploading multiple APKs with the same package name for different locales.  You can only do that if you build each localized APK with a different package name, making them technically different apps on the Google Play app store.  But from there, you can check which region you want your APK to be made available in.  Not the most elegant solution, but that's the only one I can think of for Corona Simulator built Android apps.  Now, with Corona Enterprise you *can* easily localize your app name and resources according to Google's documentation, but that's a bigger learning curve if you haven't done native Android development before.
