hi,

I want to automate an app which uses different international language like french, german etc... My objective is to write single scenario which can be re-used for different international language through passing the particular language accessibility labels. How to accomplish this without writing multiple scenario file for different international language?

Thanks

Michael Buckley

Hi,

Frank doesn't currently have this capability built-in. It has no notion of locale.

Your best bet to achieve this goal is to write some Ruby code to parse your .strings files and create a function that can localize your Ruby strings in your testing scripts.

I'm sorry that I don't have a better solution.

Thanks for your response.

Can you please provide me with the steps to parse the .string file? Any documentation in this regard will be helpful.

Thanks and Regards,

It looks like there's a .strings parser on GitHub.


If you want to write your own, Apple has documentation on the file format. It's very simple.


I would recommend adding a method to your env.rb file to parse the Localizable.strings file in your source directory. Then, add a function to that file which takes a language and key from Localizable.strings and returns the localized string. Then use that function in all your step definitions.
