Welcome to Instabug's Documentation! Here you'll find
a comprehensive technical guide to help you start
working with the Instabug SDK as quickly as possible.

Get Started

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.

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(Instabug.locale.french);

Here are the possible locale values.

Instabug.locale.arabic
Instabug.locale.chineseSimplified
Instabug.locale.chineseTraditional
Instabug.locale.czech
Instabug.locale.danish
Instabug.locale.english
Instabug.locale.french
Instabug.locale.german
Instabug.locale.italian
Instabug.locale.japanese
Instabug.locale.polish
Instabug.locale.portugueseBrazil
Instabug.locale.russian
Instabug.locale.spanish
Instabug.locale.swedish
Instabug.locale.turkish

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.setStringToKey("Please enter a correct email address", Instabug.strings.invalidEmailMessage);

Here are the possible key values.

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