iOS - How to Use Application Texts with Localizations

The Application Texts with Localizations feature will allow you to add multiple language translations to your app container and will automatically display the appropriate language based on the device's default language setting. In order for this feature to take effect, the localization and their translations must be created and entered before generating your app build because this is not a live setting and must be embedded into the app.

Note: This feature replaces the old Applications Texts "strings file" customization feature. If your app previously had a custom strings file uploaded, the translations were imported to the Application Texts page on your Publish Portal.
