Customize all the strings in Helpshift SDK's user interface
You can customize almost all the strings in the Helpshift SDK with additional internationalization options. For string customization please follow steps below :
Find the resource-id of the string that you want to change. See String resources in sdk for the full list of strings.
Create a resource with the above id in your strings.xml file.
Compile and check.
Read Going International if you want to change the strings for a particular language or want to add a language translation of your own.
