Facebook Allows App Developers To Add Localized Images

Facebook expanded upon the localization capabilities it announced for application developers last month, adding the ability to upload localized icons, banners, and screenshots.

In July, the social network added a localize tab to its app dashboard, allowing developers to provide translations of their apps’ names, taglines, and descriptions for use in the app center and across Facebook.

Facebook described the new options in a post on its developer blog:

Last month, we introduced new localization functionality that lets you translate your app’s name, tagline, description, and detailed description. Today we’re enabling developers to also upload localized icons, banners, and screenshots. Localized images will be displayed to people based on their language setting and will be used across Facebook, including news feed, timeline, and app center. If you don’t provide localized images for a specific language, we will continue to use the images you uploaded for your default language. Check out the docs to learn more about localizing your app.
