    Hi everyone.
    I have bought access to Unity app, but it haven't been localized to language which I need.
    I have no access to source code, but I want to localize all text inside program.
    Is there a way to do so?
    I have found the way to replace assets in installed desktop Unity app. But unfortunately the app I need have only Web and mobile versions. Is there a way to localize any of them in the way I need?

    It really depends on how the app was built. If it's using the localization package then it could be possible. Can you speak to the developer and find out? They may be happy to work with a community provided translation.

    Thanks for advice, I've asked developers.
    But this is urgent task, so I need to check the other way.

    I've checked the .apk files and found many .bundle files in assets\aa\Android\ folder. How could I open them? I've tried to load it in Unity editor, but it failed. Do I need to install some extension?

    Those sound like asset bundles.
    We don't provide any tools for opening them outside of Unity. Do you see a manifest.json file inside the same directory? If so then you may be able to generate some new bundles to add support for the language.

    Yes, I saw manifest.
    But I've been just told that we need to use only web version...
    I couldn't see any resources at all at local storage.
    Is there a way to substitute web assets on the fly? Or its impossible.

    Im afraid that's outside of my expertise.
    The best course of action would be to talk to the developer and get them to guide you.
