Translating Scratch nowadays is EASY thanks to Google Translate

You shouldn't ever use machine translation to localize software; a good translation takes culture, context and other factors in consideration. For instance, I translate Scratch to the Spanish language and at times we've had discussions over what's the best translation for a certain block or word, considering that Scratch's main audience is children and teens.

You can definitely tell when something has been translated with Google – try translating, say, a Russian or Japanese webpage to English and see if you can make sense out of it.

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. Here are the steps to get started.

1. Join our translation platform: The Scratch program and website are translated using the Transifex service. It lets registered translators suggest and edit the translations. To translate part of Scratch interface or website, you have to sign up for a free Translator account at Transifex. Please see the Transifex Getting Started Guide for more details.

Once signed up you can return to the Scratch 3.0 Editor project, and click the “Help Translate…” button to join the Scratch Translators team on Transifex. Once you're on the team you'll be able to translate all the Scratch Projects including the Scratch Website, Legacy and Videos in addition to the Editor.

You can find more information on this page:
http://en.scratch-wiki.info/wiki/How_to_Translate_Scratch

2. Join our new Slack Community for translators (over 16 only). We recently set this up as an experiment to allow volunteers to connect with each other and discuss translation challenges.

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

While Google translate might be able to create a translation for something like “point in direction 90”, it won't necessarily be the best translation for Scratch. Someone who uses or teaches Scratch is much better at coming up with a good translation that will make sense to people learning Scratch in that language. It's not always the literal translation. So that's why we don't let people use Google Translate to translate Scratch.
