Custom region/language

Batch allows you to set a custom region or a custom language that will override the value detected by the SDK. By default, Batch collects the language and the country of your users' devices.

Setting a custom region/language is useful if:

  • You don't want to use the values detected by Batch.
  • Your users can choose their own language or region for localization purposes.

Custom locale

Here is how to set a custom region/language:

  • Swift
  • Objective-C
let editor = BatchUser.editor()
editor.setLanguage("en") // Language must be 2 chars, lowercase, ISO 639 formatted
editor.setRegion("US") // Region must be 2 chars, uppercase, ISO 3166 formatted

// This is how you retrieve your custom values. Values are nil by default.
let language = BatchUser.language()
let region = BatchUser.region()

If you call editor method before startWithAPIKey it will return nil. You should always call it after you started the SDK, and check nullity to be safe.
