Expo i18n with next js (web) - translation strings not rendering

Hello all,
I am new to next js. I am trying to launch a web version (PWA) of my react native app (iOS/Android). this is already working however now I am trying to implement next js and my translation strings never load on the initial render.
do you guys have any solutions for this? I have been experimenting with getServerSideProps,getStaticProps etc but nothing seems to work
