I have extended the Magento soap API in a custom module via wsi.xml and wsdl.xml to bring in a custom attribute added to my customers. The extension works fine to bring in the custom attributes I add via the back-end. However, if that attribute is a drop-down, the value retrieved through the API is the drop-down's option id.

I am retrieving my custom attributes via customerCustomerInfo. As seen in the Magento API documentation. I have provided my wsi.xml and wsdl.xml below for clarity's sake.

Is there a way to get the actual option name through the soap API instead of the id?

wsi.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<wsdl:definitions xmlns:typens="urn:Magento" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:soap="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/wsdl/soap/" xmlns:soapenc="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/" xmlns:wsdl="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/wsdl/" name="Magento" targetNamespace="urn:Magento">
    <wsdl:types>
        <xsd:schema xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" targetNamespace="urn:Magento">
            <xsd:complexType name="customerCustomerEntity">
                <xsd:sequence>
                    <xsd:element name="customertype" type="xsd:string" minOccurs="0" ></xsd:element>
                </xsd:sequence>
            </xsd:complexType>
        </xsd:schema>
    </wsdl:types>
</wsdl:definitions>

wsdl.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<definitions xmlns:typens="urn:{{var wsdl.name}}" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:soap="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/wsdl/soap/"
    xmlns:soapenc="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/" xmlns:wsdl="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/wsdl/" xmlns="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/wsdl/"
    name="{{var wsdl.name}}" targetNamespace="urn:{{var wsdl.name}}">
    <types>
        <schema xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" targetNamespace="urn:Magento">
            <import namespace="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/" schemaLocation="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/" />
            <complexType name="customerCustomerEntity">
                <all>
                    <element name="customertype" type="xsd:string" minOccurs="0" />
                </all>
            </complexType>
        </schema>
    </types>
</definitions>

There is no method implemented in the standard Magento SOAP API to get the attributes value instead of the id.

The attributes are collected in the info() function of Mage_Customer_Model_Customer_Api: lines 98-104 (as for CE 1.8.1.0)

   foreach ($this->_mapAttributes as $attributeAlias=>$attributeCode) {
       $result[$attributeAlias] = $customer->getData($attributeCode);
   }

   foreach ($this->getAllowedAttributes($customer, $attributes) as attributeCode=>$attribute) {
        $result[$attributeCode] = $customer->getData($attributeCode);
   }

So you might want to extend it there.
