Build Status

A simple command-line tool to convert Android strings.xml files into iOS Localizable.strings and Localizable.stringsdict files.


The tool can be installed using brew. All you have to do is run the following command:

brew install liquidsoul/formulae/l10nconverter


You need to pass the action to the tool to execute the conversion or get the usage help:

l10nconverter help

You can convert a android strings directory with this command:

l10nconverter convertAndroidFolder android/ --output=ios/

The tool expects the folder to have the following layout:

├── values
│   └── strings.xml
└── values-fr
    └── strings.xml

Which is the standard Android resources layout. See the Android String Resources documentation for more details.

It will output the following folder tree containing iOS localization files:

├── Base.lproj
│   ├── Localizable.strings
│   └── Localizable.stringsdict
└── fr.lproj
    ├── Localizable.strings
    └── Localizable.stringsdict

The presence of stringsdict files will depend on the existance of plurals in your localization. None will be generated if you do not have plurals keys. You can look at the Apple documentation for more information on plurals on iOS.

⚠️ Limitations ⚠️
