Description

The screen asking for permission to access a user’s location currently uses internal iOS strings for the question as well as user choices, causing two or maybe even three l10n issues compared to all other screens for some locales, including nl and de. They stand out very much to say the least, and may be annoying to users (not to say localizers.) This is the screen that currently contains the text:

> Allow "user" to access your location while you use the app? // -> internal, issues
> Web sites you visit may request your location. // -> from localization, no issues
> Don't allow     Allow // -> internal, issues

If possible, please make the screen use localized strings for the question offered, as well as for "Don’t allow" and "Allow".
Unfortunately this is out of our control.

The only string we can change is "Web sites you visit may request your location."

All the other text and buttons in that dialog are system provided. With no way to override or to provide our own version of this dialog.

The same applies to other permission dialogs that iOS has. Like to ask access to the camera or photo album.

I'm marking this as WONTFIX because there simply is no way to address this.
