Differentiate localization in Spanish speaking countries

tropictropic Posts: 120New Users @ @
Hi,

I am making an app with spanish localization. Since my spanish is pretty much non-existent, from a marketing point of view, should I make both Spanish and Latino Spanish localization, or will the first be just fine?

    It depends on the kind of your app. If that's not a Spanish vocabulary or some app, that is intended specifically for Spanish people from certain countries, I'd omit Latino Spanish initially.

    They're virtually the same, it would be a complete waste of money to do both. Just do latino Spanish since that's where your biggest audience will be.

    @CoDEFRo Aren't there a lot of Spanish-speaking people in the US?

    There are but I don't see how that relates to the question? If tropic just does latino Spanish localization, it will be used for regular Spanish localization. US Spanish speakers are latino Spanish speakers anyway.

    I didn't know that. Obviously, in this case there isn't a big sense in doing regular Spanish (in comparison with latino).

    Nah. And honestly I got my app translated in Castilian Spanish by accident and I doubt it's made a difference. The difference between Castilian Spanish and Latin Spanish is like the difference between US and UK English.

    Enough so that spanish keywords impact your rank in the US store.
