Localization


The JW Player SDK for Android supports localizing error strings and setting the language in the IMA SDK.

ImaSdkSettings

To localize the language used during IMA ads:

ImaSdkSettings imaSdkSettings = new ImaSdkSettings();
    // Use the 2-letter ISO 639-1 language code for your desired language 
    imaSdkSettings.setLanguage("NL");
    ImaAdvertising imaAdvertising = new ImaAdvertising(schedule, imaSdkSettings);
    playerConfig.setAdvertising(imaAdvertising);
