> localize their menus when you swipe from the top edge.

> essential apps every user would expect preinstalled on their devices.
> Translating core apps, you'll make it possible to have a richer localized
> experience with clock, camera, weather, calculator and more.

> ## Testing translations
> With the addition of multiple supported form factors, testing is important
> not only to ensure that translations are correct, but also that they fit in
> UI components of different widths. So please double-check that long texts
> fit in in the smaller factors such as the phone.
> Translation testing on a running phone or on the emulator deserves an
> article of its own, so please stay tuned for the next update coming soon.
