    Translation isn't really a react native specific issue, the web/react also needs to be able to support this. You shouldn't need anything fancy to translate, but strings would need to be localized via https://github.com/zoontek/react-native-localize or https://github.com/globalizejs/globalize. With regards to translating the library, you can either use https://github.com/ds300/patch-package to localize all the strings for your own use or submit a PR to the library. I am also assuming that you have no flexibility on what text is being displayed when using the libraries' API (ex: headerTitle in react-navigation) because in that case it is related to translating your own app.
