Best way to translate and upload Android Release Notes quickly
While the filing of this What’s New information in Apple App Store Connect happens in the same place as keywords, for example, the matching location in Google Play Console is somewhat hidden.
Adding and finding Android Release Notes
It is not located with the other app metadata. Instead, the release notes are attached to the actual release. And releases are organized in a track – internal, Alpha, Beta, and Production. Just navigating to that place is always a bit of a feat.
Even more complex, the release notes are in an appropriate format. Brackets containing the respective country code enclose the version description. App publishers generally have to provide release notes for all maintained languages.

This whole process is time-consuming, time-consuming, and somewhat annoying.

Select the source language and the target languages and get the result immediately. After verification, the translations will be added to the metadata set.
The final result can be viewed again in the App Store Manager.
The last step is to upload the release notes to the Google Play Console. Only the credentials are required for this.
