But I don't see why a translation costs a lot of money and is a huge amount of work.
Is it more than changing menu labels; do you have to translate documentation as well?

People can use iOS without reading a manual or an extensive language-based interface. All software across all platforms should head the same way so that any translation is minimal: just the user manuals, not embedded in text strings in the user interface.
