Today I encounter some interesting feature of the localized application building process. I tried to build the test application for the android platform with en and ru localized string and wanted to have localized app name. I followed to the help system recommendation that is I created the folders with the files as it was described in the help.
platform res android values-en string.xml values-ru string.xml AndroidManifest.xmlIn strings.xml placed in the folder named values-en I defined such string <string name="app_name">Application name</string> I placed also localized string in values-ru/strings.xml and replaced the label attribute for <application> and <activity> tags in AndroidManifest.xml . Additionally, as it is defined in the documentation, I created the folder i18n with folders and files that contains localized strings for the UI element captions. These files not contains app_name. Then I built the application and ran it on emulator. I observe that the application name is the full activity classname instead to be the localized name as I defined in platform/res/android/values-ru/strings.xml. I look at the content of build/android/res/values-ru/strings.xml and see that this file contains the strings from strings.xml placed into i18n/ru but not from platform/res.. /ru. I leaved AndroidManifest.xml but removed all other files and folders from the folder platform/res/android and added localized string for "app_name" into i18n/ru/strings.xml. Now it works fine and I see localized app name in the emulator.
maybe you should take a look at this http://docs.appcelerator.com/titanium/2.1/index.html#!/guide/Internationalization-section-29004892_Internationalization-Internationalizingtheapp%27sname
