Consumers want content and apps that are relevant to their lives, and they have plenty of suitable choices when they browse Nokia Store. If your app is presented in a language in which theyre not skilled, theyre likely to tire of it soon or they may not download it at all. The Nokia Web Tools suite makes it easy for you to localise your web app to increase downloads and engagement and to improve user experience. In this webinar, Series 40 web tools expert Naresh Kumar will demonstrate how easy it is to localise Series 40 web apps for multiple languages and regions. We suggest that you install Nokia Web Tools before attending the webinar. Youll be able to understand the training without using the software, but youll learn more overall by starting to practise with Nokia Web Tools right after the session.
