SDK Locale

This section covers how to change the language of the SDK in your app as well as the content of all Instabug messages that your users see for Cordova apps.

Setting the Locale

The SDK will automatically use the current locale of your user's device, however, you can override it with the following method.

Instabug.setLocale('french');

Here are the possible locale values.

'arabic'
'chineseSimplified'
'chineseTraditional'
'english'
'french'
'german'
'italian'
'japanese'
'korean'
'polish'
'portugueseBrazil'
'russian'
'spanish'
'swedish'
'turkish'
'czech'

Dashboard Language

At the moment, the Instabug dashboard only supports English. Changing the SDK locale will not change the language of your dashboard.

Overriding String Values

You can also override each string shown to your users individually using the following method.

Instabug.setString(Instabug.strings.invalidEmailMessage, 'Please enter a correct email address');

Here are the possible key values.

Instabug.strings.shakeHint
Instabug.strings.swipeHint
Instabug.strings.edgeSwipeStartHint
