String Customization

Customize all the strings in Helpshift SDK's user interface

Helpshift uses the HSLocalization bundle to read the default values of all the string translations.

You can customize all the strings used in the Helpshift SDK by following the steps below:

  1. Create a new simple folder "HelpshiftCustomLocalization" in your project from Finder.
  2. Go to HelpshiftCustomLocalizations folder and copy the lproj files for all the languages you want to support. You can find this folder at the root level of SDK zip file or at Pods/Helpshift/helpshift-sdk-ios-vx.x.x/HelpshiftCustomLocalizations if you are using CocoaPods integration.
  3. Paste the lproj files selected in the previous step to the HelpshiftCustomLocalization folder.
  4. In HelpshiftCustomLocalization folder, change translations of the relevant keys in the HelpshiftLocalizable.strings files.
  5. Rename "HelpshiftCustomLocalization" folder to the " HelpshiftCustomLocalization.bundle". Your system will ask your confirmation to add "bundle" extension to the folder. Click on "Add".
  6. Add this bundle to your project from Xcode using File -> Add Files to -> Select the HelpshiftCustomLocalization.bundle
  7. Go to "Build Phases" settings tab of your project and Expand Bundle Resources menu
  8. Drag the HelpshiftCustomLocalization.bundle from your project navigator to "Copy Bundle Resources" menu.
  9. Alternatively you can also add this bundle using + icon in the "Copy Bundle Resources" menu. SDK will start using your customized strings now.

Below is the description of the keys (in the HelpshiftLocalizable.strings file) for each of the customizable strings in the app:
