Add a new language

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 @youssef.mohamed, 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

No, @youssef.mohamed, You are getting it wrong. coding in thunkable, requires how and what output the programmer will get, from the required blocks. Yes, I agree that you need to know the names of the block, but, you can take advantage of @muneer 's tip of writing it on a notepad. Please, This is a positive community. We try helping every single thunker. even power Thunkers like @tatiang have queries, which shows you how we all have questions. We are, like some of us did to others, helping you. So please try taking these tips into consideration while coding.

keep Thunking,

Most of us understand English, the language we code in, and yet we have queries.

You are asking for help with something minor or malfunctioning
As for me, I can ask for help in 75% of the blocks

Ok

No, and also, I think your English is pretty good! I can’t understand why you’re facing trouble with blocks.

Yeah, it’s true. However, you can’t really judge a book by its cover.

Specifically for you, ask @muneer for help in Arabic (if he’s okay with it), because he might know some.
