Translating Stencyl to your language is now a snap thanks to our web-based translation tool.
Check our Translation Tool
Stencyl has been partially or fully translated to quite a few languages already. Check our web-based translation tool out to check on the status of each translation and begin participating in the translation process.
(If the tool is down, check this forum topic for its status.)
If you're interested in translating, all you need to do is use the translation tool. Chances are good that the translation is already partially done. Your task is to fill in the missing phrases and vote existing phrases up/down. Together, you and others can collectively come up with a full transltion.
How do make Stencyl use the latest translations?
(This applies to Stencyl 3.0 and later.)
Go to Preferences and click the Update Language Packs button. This will pull down the latest materials from the translation tool. This is only useful for those who are actively involved in translation. Regular users need not do this.
We don't support right-to-left languages such as Arabic quite yet. However, we have a partial translation to Arabic that will be useful when we're able to support it.
