I am suggesting a block like this
(letters (1) to (3) of [world])

when green flag clicked
if <(language) = [English ]> then

say [Everything is Awesome!] for (2) secs
end
if <(language) = [French ]> then

say [Tout est super-genial!] for (2) secs
end
if <(language) = [Italian ]> then

say [E meraviglioso!] for (2) secs
end
if <(language) = [Spanish ]> then

say [Todo es fabuloso!] for (2) secs
end

When gf clicked

wait until (I am hungry)

Yes! Though I think there's a workaround.

If there is a workaround please can you tell me it

when green flag clicked
if <(language) = [English ]> then

say [Everything is Awesome!] for (2) secs
end
if <(language) = [French ]> then

say [Tout est super-genial!] for (2) secs
end
if <(language) = [Italian ]> then

say [E meraviglioso!] for (2) secs
end
if <(language) = [Spanish ]> then

say [Todo es fabuloso!] for (2) secs
end

Join letter one to letter two and letter three and so on.
(Scratchblocks will not cooperate with me today.)

it's not that hard to workaround
define letters (a) thru (b) of [string]
set [return v] to []
set [letter v] to (a)
repeat (((b) - (a)) + (1))
set [return v] to (join (return)(letter (letter) of (string)))
change [letter v] by (1)
end

but I support anyways

edit: fixed

How do you make a reporter out of this. What's the workaround for
say (letters (1) to (3) of [world]) for (2) secs

when green flag clicked
if <(language) = [English ]> then

say [Everything is Awesome!] for (2) secs
end
if <(language) = [French ]> then

say [Tout est super-genial!] for (2) secs
end
if <(language) = [Italian ]> then

say [E meraviglioso!] for (2) secs
end
if <(language) = [Spanish ]> then

say [Todo es fabuloso!] for (2) secs

Honestly, though, that's why we need custom reporter blocks in general.

Thanks. I used this in my project http://scratch.mit.edu/projects/25277971/

when green flag clicked
if <(language) = [English ]> then

say [Everything is Awesome!] for (2) secs
end
if <(language) = [French ]> then

say [Tout est super-genial!] for (2) secs

I get a bit annoyed when I see really short responses to suggestions. Simply saying you support or don't (or are indifferent - as in this case) is not really a discussion of the merits of the suggestion. Please take the time to support your opinions with some arguments

As for the suggestion: I like to do text manipulation projects at times and I would love to have this block. Sure, there are ways to work around it - but they are not very clean. However, I also recognize that Scratch is intended to be simple to learn - and one way to keep it simple is to limit the number of blocks. So there have to be some very compelling benefits before a new block is added to the pallet.

Support since other programming languages can do this. Also the workaround is very slow as I noticed when I used it to make a cloud encoder.

Even with the “no screen refresh” thing disabled? Wow.

Ah yes, slicing. Unfortunate for the undefined behaviors here, such as invalid indexes. Will the starting index be inclusive and the ending index be exclusive, as in Python, such that end - start = length? Or will both be inclusive?

A text reverse block would go well with this.
