Add a new language

Please add the Arabic language to the site and make the blocks in the Arabic language. This will include a large number of Arabs to the platform and will increase the understanding of the blocks for Arabs
Thank you

I want the blocks to be in Arabic.

Indeed, it would be helpful if the Thunkable Team could allow the option for several languages (in blocks editor or design editor), such as Spanish, French, German, Russian, Hindi, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and other less common languages.

Edit: Thunkable already has Simplified Chinese.

It would be a nightmare to support or solve other people’s coding issues if presented to you in a language you do not understand.

Yeah, I think that is true. Still, it would help many people around the world build apps.

Anyways, couldn’t we use Google Translate?

We are all here working to solve each other problems and doing it for free. Basically for the love of the platform and to support each other.

Showing a screenshot of codes filled with a language I cannot understand will sure put me off helping others. I don’t know about you but I don’t think this idea is helping at all.

Yeah, I’m going to have to agree with you on this one.

Although it does not have the most speakers, English is widely spoken throughout the world. However, I believe that having only a few languages on Thunkable (like Arabic, as suggested by @mbrwky97z) can be helpful.

Don’t take me wrong on the subject of languages. I am an Arab and living in an Arab country and I would love to see technological solutions in Arabic language but now this is not a reality and I have to live with that fact.

Look, I am Egyptian, and I do not understand English except for very simple words. When you put me with the English blocks, what will I understand?

If the platform is in the most famous languages ​​of the world, the platform will be widely known + it will allow everyone to create applications and support comments will decrease, which will make it easier for everyone

I don’t think I agree with this - I see plenty of requests for help by English language speakers, too.

It /would/ be nice if there were a switch and all the blocks would display in a different language. And I suspect those of us who can only offer support in English would ask you to post your blocks in English, when we ask you to post your blocks. It might be fine. I don’t know how hard it would be to do, on the programming side, however.

Yes, I agree with you, that 75% of those who ask for support are in the English language, because the platform is only popular in English-speaking countries, but if you add other languages, you will find other languages ​​asking for support, but if there is a support request, 100 messages per day will be 50 messages only

Yes, this problem almost also faces me if you put under your buttons or the content group will not change its location

  • Your abilities in the English language can be better than me or vice versa. Our capabilities are not the same, so if you support the famous languages, it will benefit everyone.

How can this be true? People are asking for help because they need help with coding correctly. It has nothing to do with the language.

hey @mbrwky97z, i don’t want any language war here on this thread but, people from Other Countries are helping people from their countries, who are having probs with something. like here :

The creator of this Post made an Thunkable documentation, in french!
I know you want to have arab language as part of The thunkable language, But, don’t be caught up with a single problem. If you want, you can post a feature request on their Public github repository, or you can Make a thunkable documentation, in arab !

Keep Thunking,

I do some short courses in AI and in Thunkable to young Arabs in my village and I ask them to simply open the note app and copy the component image and then describe it in their own words to remember how to use it when coding. This is all what you will need for a component. In addition, you can give it any name in any language you feel comfortable with.

If people understand the language, they will need only a little help
