Translating Scratch into Other Languages

Scratch has been translated into more than 40 languages with the generous help of volunteering translators from all over the world.
However, parts of the Scratch interface and website in some languages are still missing translations, and some translations might have glitches. If you have experience with some language, you can help in completing the translations and correcting any mistakes.

We've made a Scratch wiki page that explains how translations can be contributed:
http://wiki.scratch.mit.edu/wiki/How_to_Translate_Scratch

You can check the current status of the translations on Scratch Transifex page:
https://www.transifex.com/llk/public/

Thanks for your help!

Translating Scratch into Other Languages

We should have 2 for-fun languages (or more) one being “Pirate English” and the other being “Hsilgne”. Hsilgne is backwards English, and Pirate English is just English with ‘pirate’ terms. “Explore” would be “Scan te' Sea”, Discuss “Talk with yer' pirates”, Notifications would be “Dire notes” maybe. As for Hsilgne, it's a bit more complicated than you might think. “Scratch is the best, most awesome service ever!” in Hsilgne would be “Reve ecivres emosewa tsom, tseb eht si Scratch!”

Read the post at the bottom of the page: http://scratch.mit.edu/discuss/topic/3312/?page=1#post-18215
We should focus on real languages for now.

Thanks for all your work! Any plans as to:
  • Translation of Scratch Cards
  • Translation (and/or subtitles) of tutorials
  • Language specific featured stuff, such as studios

I heard some french people being annoyed because they couldn't type accents and sometimes the scripts changed randomly into english.

Check out my projects . http://scratch.mit.edu/projects/11603382/ (A project called 'Football, my most popular project .) . http://scratch.mit.edu/projects/10164327/(A project called ‘Ginger’ probably my best or…) . http://scratch.mit.edu/projects/11499976/ ('Find That Treasure') .Or you could test you maths skills with Professer Oval http://scratch.mit.edu/projects/11601697/ .Or you could laugh your head off with my last project http://scratch.mit.edu/projects/10186679/ ('Jokes', no I mean that's the projects name, ‘jokes’).
Can we reach 600 views on my most popular project- Football?

Hi Abe,

The problem has been fixed. You can send me the username you tried to register with to activate it instead of creating another new account.

Hi,

I just got involved in Scratch translation to Hungarian.
Anyone else on it, do get in touch!

My take on “fuzzy” is it indicates you are unsure about it.

Hi,

Looking at the Hungarian translations I can see the traces of different people starting out, contributing a bunch of suggestions, which then never get approved, so I assume they give up.
Am I wrong?
Are there any active reviewers, approvers? Is there a language admin for Hungarian?
If not, what does it take to become one?
(if “approved suggestions” is a metric, then we have a fatal circular dependency right there…)


Thanks in advance

Do Indonesian has an admin? It seems not, because on the the dashboard (whatever you call it) the numbers of “reviewed” and “approved” did not changed. If we do have an admin, it seems she/he's not active enough.

Do you think we could have an admin?

ME.

I don't even know if you can translate in scratch

How would you be able to translate words in a project?
