    Hi all,
    Depending on a language selection in "Settings" how one can display text in that particular language. By text here I mean both the text in various controls [like UITextField, UIButton etc] in xib and text displayed dynamically.
    I think making use of .strings file will only replace the specified text with desired localized string but I would like to convert entire application's text into that language.

    Thanks
    Arnieterm

    The system won't do it for you: you need to translate every string into a strings file and translate every xib. Every hard-coded string should not be and should be a call to NSLocalizedString.

    Read the Localization guide. It explains the system support for this.
