Enable RTL translation of apps (DEADLINE 3/15)

Description

Hook up Transifex to mobile apps so that apps can be successfully translated.

Acceptance Criteria:

  • External parties (esp Saudi team) can translate all app text on Transifex

  • Support for translating into RTL languages (Arabic)

  • Android and iPhone apps properly render the RTL text

  • Test a few pages with a fake RTL language

Non-Requirements:

  • Entire UI is RTL

Notes:

  • Right to left text should already be supported but we should verify that fact.

  • Steps:
    1. Extract translations from code and send them to transifex
    2. Download translations from transifex and put them in the right place/format

  • Support through standard OS locale switching

  • Check with Sarina about how this all works
