Ionic translation effect on device memory and performance

Hi everybody,
I want to switch my cordova app to work with this awesome framework
in order for that to happen it need to support multiple languages.
it has quite a lot text in it.

1.i wander if the way it’s being done in angular translate doesn’t load too much on the device memory.

from what i understand the texts are being represented in js objects and the translation is done by the js when the app is running.

2 . is there any ionic alternative for supporting languages which being done in the compilation step?

Thank you in advanced
Yehuda
