Multi-Language-Support iOS

Hello all,

while waiting for my first app to be reviewed I'm planning the next apps
and also think about a better multi-language support. I hope one of the
next versions of the iOS-Plugin will support language detection :)

In my first app (english/german) I used text files for labels and texts which
have to be shown in seperate languages. Not very elegant.

For the next version/app I'm think about building a function which extracts
all long IDs of objects in all stacks which have a custom property called
"localize" (for example), which I then will put into an array and save as a
file. So I would have a "database" of elements which have to be translated.
This data could be completed by translators (friends, myself) with different
languages. I would load this array while starting the app to set all labels/texts
to the language which is choosen/detected.

How do you think about this way, any better ideas?

Best regards,
Harald Müller.
