Here’s an interesting article via TechCrunch about the number of languages a startup needs to engage on to reach a growing customer base and opportunity. You may actually be surprised by some of the findings (or not):
Interesting how the top languages are situated and not by apparent population size.
As an indie developer, it’s hard to look at these and not feel totally overwhelmed as the mere thought of localizing your app in addition to all of the other work required feels like way too much.
And to be sure, it is too much for a small indie project, especially in the beginning. The question is how you and I will engage with these growing markets in the best way (and most wise way) possible.
