Re: language

i don't think you need an english version. just make sure to select the right Countries when uploading your application, and make the first description in english, and then in spanish. in english (so RIM can know what it's about) but if the original languages of the Countries you are choosing to show your app is Spanish, then it shows the spanish Smiley Wink

Re: language

I am submitting my app, is it common to submit an english application available in all countries or should I be selecting N.A. only?

Re: language

I wouldn't let language be a reason to release one version in only some countries. You never know who might live where, and still prefer to view their apps in a paticular language.

Re: language

All my apps support only English (description, UI, etc.), I always post them for all countries. Users, who buy the apps, are from all over the world. If someone is able to read your app description he/she would be able to use the app as well Smiley Happy
