SOLVED: SwiftUI Localization of Strings inside an Array

Forums > SwiftUI

Hi everyone! I'm trying to localize my App and everything worked for now, expect the strings inside an array apparently get not localized. This is the array and the picker:

let days: [String] = ["Mon", "Tue", "Wed", "Thu", "Fri", "Sat", "Sun"]

ForEach (days,id: \.self) { day in
                            Text (day)
                                .font (.callout)
                                .frame(maxWidth: .infinity)

I'm trying to locate it in Spanish and this is the part than doesn't work in the Localizable.strings (Spanish):

"Mon" =  "Lun";
"Tue" = "Mar";
"Wed" = "Mier";
"Thu" = "Jue";
"Fri" = "Vier";
"Sat" = "Sab";
"Sun" =  "Dom";

Any idea? Thanks!


I use an extension on String

     A NSLocalizedString for this String where a key has to be added to Localizable.strings file.
    var localized: String {
        return NSLocalizedString(self, comment: "")

    func localized(_ arguments: CVarArg...) -> String {
        return String(format: self.localized, arguments: arguments)

you can use it with day.localized.


Perfect, this has solved my problem. Thank you!
