As Roblox grows into a global community, you’ll need more tools and features to internationalize your games and tap into the global market.
We’re extremely excited to announce the availability of one of these critical features: you can now add your game title and description in other languages! Doing so means your game will be discoverable in multiple languages.
This feature can be accessed through a new Create menu item called “Configure Localization”. Future localization features like translation management will also be released here. Our goal is to give you a “one-stop shop” to manage localizing your content.
The localization portal currently consists of two sections: “Source Language” and “Game Name and Description Translations.”
Source language is the language your game is written in. If your source language is a Roblox platform language (English, French, German, Portuguese, Spanish), please update this setting accordingly. This will be extremely helpful for future language sorts and features. Please note: once you set a source language, you cannot change it back to "Not Specified.” You should only need to set your source language once.
The Game Name and Description Translations section allows you to switch between languages to add translated names/descriptions. The source language name/description is NOT editable here. To edit source language name/description please return to Studio or Configure Game/Place.
Once you save a localized name/description, your game will now be discoverable in that language! You can check how it appears by viewing your game detail page in the language you just added.
Q: Why can’t I edit source language content in the localization portal?
A: We don’t want to disrupt your current workflow for adding/editing source content. We’ve included source name/description so you can reference and compare content across all languages while source content remains editable only where it is originally.
Q: What if a language I’m interested in is not available?
A: We’re currently focused on adding support for Roblox platform languages (English, French, German, Portuguese, Spanish). As our platform languages expand, so too will the dropdowns for localized content.
If you have any other questions, concerns, or feedback about this feature, ask them below!
Note: if your source description isn’t appearing in the localization portal, update and re-save your source description and try again.
