We are working on making some improvements to the experience of playing the game in other languages soon. Some of the things we are thinking:
- Hover over things like
whilein the code to see a tooltip in your target language.
- Show translations of those pieces of code in the docs and item descriptions.
- Add the ability to translate the transactional emails that get sent out (welcome to the site, forgot your password, etc.)
Some things that we are thinking we would do later, but not now:
- Add translations of audio files.
- Add an option to ignore the English method names entirely, so maybe you’d write
敌人 = 英雄.找最近敌人()instead of
enemy = hero.findNearestEnemy().
There are also a few open issues relating to translations that we are not sure how to prioritize. So I wanted to ask the community:
What are some of the most important things we can do to improve playing CodeCombat in other languages?
