I want to build a multilanguage app but i am facing issues

You can use the guide I created to translate the app in the most efficient and easy way, here:

If you are not building your application in kodular, you can use this extension (it can also be done with dictionaries):

your solution seems to be too complicated to use Yandex Translate every time you like to switch the language... the texts of the labels are static, aren't they? so you know the words to translate in advance... what about creating a list for each language and assigning the label.texts from the corresponding list after switching the language?

Hi @Shruti, what I did is:

  • Define a variable to selected language and save it in TinyDb, in the settings section of the app.
  • When any screen Initialize, call language data from TinyDB in a global variable.
  • With logical IfThenElse, set all texts to its corresponding translation.

I'm sure that is not the best solution, but it was the one it works for me, and you can see the final result in Google Play Store as "Libreta de Dominadas" (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=appinventor.ai_cperezn.Libreta_de_Dominadas)

I hope this helps you.

We keep telling you, use the AfterSelecting event !!

:sweat_smile: :sweat_smile:

it is working now
but i have one more issue
on one of the screens i want to show a notification only once when the user opens it for the first time but i don't know how to do it
i hope i will get a solution to this as well!!

Use a tag in a tinydb and set this on the first run in Screen Initialise. If tag = "First Run" then show the notifier, otherwise set the tag to "Done".

thank you @TIMAI2 !!!
i will surely do it

Keystore may be deleted, try deleting the application and reinstalling it

Hi ! @Point
earlier when i downloaded it , i deleted it after checking
but now it is not getting installed in my phone(the same device i used earlier)
Any suggestions??? @TIMAI2 @Xtendera @Point @Carlos_Perez @Taifun

this is what it shows!!!

first of all, please do not tag users and be patient until someone writes an answer

did you rename the project?
did you uninstall the previous version of your app?

this was @Boban's answer on a similar issue

I don’t know why some users have issues whit this, for some reasons when you uploaded your file to creator, it didn’t adjust the path of your app new name, it kept the old name and at the same time when you build to apk it created a path with the old name and new name
