Localization in iOS

Create an individual Localizable.strings file for each language. The right side would be different for each language. Think of it as a key-value pair:

"str" = "str-language";

Access str in Objective-C:

//Try to provide description on the localized string to be able to create a proper documentation if needed
NSString *str = NSLocalizedString(@"string", @"description of the string");

Access str in Swift:

let str = NSLocalizedString("string", comment: "language");
