The micro:bit Python Editor can be translated into a growing number of languages. 


Viewing translated languages

To view and select the languages, click on the globe icon button. From the globe dropdown, you can also find more information on adding a translation of your own.


Contributing a translation

The Micro:bit Educational Foundation uses a community translation service called Crowdin to manage the translations, so if you do not already have an account, you will need to signup as a new Crowdin user. Once you have signed up a member of the Foundation will approve your access to the project.


We'd also encourage you to sign up as a translator/proofreader on the microbit.org website, so we can keep in contact and let you know about the latest translation activities.


When you have signed up to Crowdin and logged in, you will find the Python Editor translations under apps/python-editor. 


Selecting the en.json file in your language will bring up the list of English source strings for you to translate. Once the strings are proofread and verified they can be added to the editor.




Periodically the team will update the editor with new translations. If you want to know more about the process head to microbit.org/translate or contact a member of the team via CrowdIn messaging or open a support ticket.
