How to localise a string inside the iOS info.plist file?

As you might know the iOS 8 requires NSLocationWhenInUseUsageDescription key for using user's location. I have added this key and some general information into my info plist.

How can I use translation string inside the plist file ?

-- Update --

I already have a Localizable string. I'm just wondering that can I use something like
NSLocalizedString(MYSTRING,nil) inside the plist string. I know that I can create multiple file of info.plist for localisation but I was wondering there might be an easier way.

Answer

You should use InfoPlist.strings file to localize values of Info.plist. To do this, go to File->New->File, choose Strings File under Resource tab of iOS, name it InfoPlist, and create. Open and insert the Info.plist values you want to localize like:

"NSLocationWhenInUseUsageDescription" = "Description of this";

Now you can localize InfoPlist.strings file with translations. Good Luck!

EDIT:

select the localization options, or enable localization if needed,
