Say Hello! to Multilingual Shiny Apps

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Multilingual shiny apps are not straightforward to build. Translation affects almost every single aspect of an app. Although there are a few packages designed to automate the translation process, they tend to only work for the most widely spoken languages.

Using a bilingual English-Welsh shiny app we developed to present public health data as a case study, this talk will discuss:

  • how we built a multilingual shiny app;
  • how translation affected design decisions;
  • how we overcame the main issues faced;
  • and most importantly, what we'd do differently next time.

By the end of this talk, you will have a better understanding of how to translate your Shiny app to help you to share your app with a much wider audience.
