auth_client_using_bad_version_title : Error Android Lint

If you are using Google Play service API for you android Project, and when you try to Export Signed Android Application, you may get such a error message "auth_client_using_bad_version_title". And your res folder may show up errors. Reading the error description gives us some hints.

Description : "auth_client_using_bad_version_title" is translated here but not found in default locale

Issue: Checks for translations that appear to be unused (no default language string)
Id: ExtraTranslation

If a string appears in a specific language translation file, but there is no corresponding string in the default locale, then this string is probably unused. (It's technically possible that your application is only intended to run in a specific locale, but it's still a good idea to provide a fallback.).

Note that these strings can lead to crashes if the string is looked up on any locale not providing a translation, so it's important to clean them up.

Resolving this issue

Depending upon the languages that you have set for your Project you need to place auth_strings.xml files from values folder from google-play-services-lib library folder to you project values folder.

Copy auth_string xml to your project

Suppressing this error message

If you want to suppress this error message,

For Eclipse running on Windows OS,
