Translating Stencyl

by Jon (Updated on 2014-01-26)

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.

Disclaimer: All articles are geared towards Stencyl 3.0 and above. Use comments to provide feedback and point out issues with the article (typo, wrong info, etc.). If you're seeking help for your game, please ask a question on the forums. Thanks!


Hi WiserGAMER. We've just introduced a web-based translation tool for making translations come about much quicker.

Although we don't support RTL yet (it's a ton of work), we already have a partial Arabic translation that you may be interested in completing, so that when the time comes to support RTL, you will be able to enjoy it immediately.

I was hurrying up to translate Stencyl but I took an arrow to the knee when I read the limitations ... please make it available soon. We will help you translate into Arabic as soon as you remove these limitations.

Frankly, I'm not interested in the localization of the application SW (I would only translate manuals, training manuals and reference materials). Because it is often confusion with the terminology when communicating users from different countries, or when you read the manual in English. I have some problems with the HelpCenter (it does not like some languages).
If you change the font in the headers "StencylFont" (file help.css) to a different font (Verdana), HelpCenter displays all foreign characters correctly. But when you choose to link to a page with a foreign (Russian) letters, HelpCenter refuses to display this page immediately. You need to click "back", then "forward" and only then translated page is displayed.
I do not know how to solve this problem. Can someone give advice?

Why right to left languages are not included?
