Default language when user's language is not supported
My game has support for English, French, Italian, German and Spanish. It automatically selects the language based on the iPhoneís global settings. What do you think I should do if the device is set to a language the game doesnít support? I guess adding a language selection UI would be nice but how important is it really? Since I didnít plan for this ahead of time it is unlikely to be added now. (the game is feature complete and almost done with beta). Currently it defaults to English if the userís language isnít supported. Would it make sense to have different defaults for different languages? For example, if the phone is set to Portuguese would I be better off showing Spanish or English?
