In this presentation, we will touch upon the most frequent challenges and solutions when designing and localizing for mobile.

We will also offer the solution to one of the most pressing issues with mobile — how to implement language plural and gender rules on Android and iOS.

Takeaways: Attendees will learn to design with language in mind, think about the global audience, the common pitfalls when localizing for mobile, and how to implement language plural and gender rules.
