Add a new translation language to your app in Purple Manager
In this article, you learn how to add a new language to the native translation text in your app which is coming from the textkeys.xlsx that is stored in Purple Manager. You will download the textkeys.xlsx, integrate a new language, reupload the file and rebuild your app.
If you want to apply this change for your Purple App, you have to rebuild the app. It demands a new submit in the apps store, to make the change visible to your users.
