Today at the Google I/O conference in San Francisco, Google announced that it would now let developers request language translations of their apps right in the Developer Console.

This will ease the transition of apps from one locale to another, increasing the arenas in which an app will be available for sale and helping to boost sales.

Developers can submit a translation order with a couple of clicks and send off their strings to the translation company (for a fee) and get the localized strings back all within the console.

Translating apps to other languages is a prime way for developers to expand their offerings to other countries.

Keep up with all of our Google I/O 2013 coverage.
