I can't compile/debug our Android app, because the localization files are not perfect yet.

My IDE's validation tool Lint create errors saying:

newCardsOrderVals is not translated in ar, bg, ca, cs

Compiling/installing/running with Ant works fine, but I would like to use my IDE to ease debugging.

Is there a way to turn off this particular check, or ideally make it a warning rather than an error?

I understand that before release we will really need to get localisation files right, but for the time being it is not a priority as the screens themselves are being modified very frequently.

Android Studio:

  • "File" > "Settings" and type "MissingTranslation" into the search box


  • Windows/Linux: In "Window" > "Preferences" > "Android" > "Lint Error Checking"
  • Mac: "Eclipse" > "Preferences" > "Android" > "Lint Error Checking"

Find the MissingTranslation line, and set it to Warning as seen below:

Missing translations, is not translated in

You can set the attribute translatable="false" on the definition like this:

<string name="account_setup_imap" translatable="false">IMAP</string>

Insert in the lint.xml file this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

        severity="ignore" />

This will cause Lint to ignore the missing translation error for ALL strings in the file, yet other string resource files can be verified if needed.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<resources xmlns:tools=""

You can also put resources which you do not want to translate to file called donottranslate.xml.

If you want to turn off the warnings about the specific strings, you can use the following:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

    <!--suppress MissingTranslation -->
    <string name="some_string">ignore my translation</string>


If you want to warn on specific strings instead of an error, you will need to build a custom Lint rule to adjust the severity status for a specific thing.

To ignore this in a gradle build add this to the android section of your build file:

lintOptions {

The following worked for me.

  • Click on Windows
  • Click on preferences
  • Select android > Lint Error Checking.
  • Find and select the relevant Lint checking and
  • Set the severity to 'Ignore' (on bottom right)

Another approach is to indicate the languages you intend to support and filter out the rest using the 'resConfigs' option with Gradle.

Check out this other answer for details

This is better, I think, because you don't have to completely ignore legitimate translation mistakes for languages you actually want to support

add the lines in your /res/values.xml file in resource root tab like this:

    tools:locale="en" tools:ignore="MissingTranslation">

tools:locale set the local language to English, no need of language translation later on that for all resource strings and tools:ignore let Lint to isnore the missing translations of the resource string values.
