Hey developers,

We have very exciting news for our international developers! As of today, Roblox Studio is now localized and accessible in three new languages: Spanish, Portuguese, and Japanese!

These localized versions will be accessible to anyone who would like to use them. Not sure how to enable them? No problem! We’ve included a short guide on how to navigate these settings below!

How to enable Studio in Spanish, Portuguese, or Japanese

  1. Open Roblox Studio and navigate to the “File” tab in the top left corner

  1. Select “Studio Settings"

While this is great for newcomers, a prompt should’ve been shown to existing studio users, I don’t want to use a translation that doesn’t match my dialect.

Not only that, but this announcement is extremely late (this functionality was available and forced over a week ago!), I spent about 6 minutes looking for a way to switch back to English because there was no information on how to disable this up until now.

This is honestly amazing. I was just reading a feature request about this a few days ago.

Great job with these updates, Roblox.

In the future, will the community be able to contribute to the available translations? (outside of #feature-requests:studio-features, perhaps exposing a translator portal like through Crowdin) Or even the ability to propose new languages to be translated that studio does not yet support?

With the recent expansion towards the Japanese audience, will there be a devforum category created for Japan? I understand that this is a difficult endeavor that would involve several moving parts to come together including identifying/fostering a sufficiently large Japanese developer community, as well as hiring management staff for a Japanese section of the devforum. Just wondering if this is an aspiration of developer relations; if so, I will be patiently and excitedly waiting! I am a Japanese speaker and would love to network with other Japanese developers on Roblox.

おお、ついに日本語対応したんだー
すごい!

Although i personally won’t be using, Japanese localization definitely is one of the great addition for Japanese community :smiley:
Back then, the only things we could rely on to work with studio and other English contents were to wait for someone who is fluent in both English and Japanese to post some tutorials, which not many does.
However, since the features are all now natively translated, we will be able to dive into the world of creating games without hesitating :smiley:

Finally, new supported languages for the studio. Great to see the studio expanding, instead of the engine :+1:

I really like the spanish language. Can be userful for new developers who don’t know 100% english.

Question, I heard that you can only script in English, Is it true… Can you script in other languages now? Spanish Portuguese and Japanese? and the other languages available to Roblox Studio? That would be very cool :sunglasses: And Helpful to say the least!

add arbic then there is alot of arbian devs
