Translations for Minecraft

Translations for Minecraft contains translations for 93 different languages. Even ones which already existed have been greatly improved to provide a more accurate translation for everything from items and blocks to in-game messages. It includes languages such as Swedish, Pirate Speak, Vietnamese and LOLCAT.

How does it work?

Once you’ve installed the resource pack and toggled your language in the the game settings you’ll immediately see some of the translations. However, some things will remain in English as the translation files aren’t yet complete.

Here you can see some texts which have been translated using the LOLCAT language.


It’s primarily in-game that you’ll notice the big differences as every item, block and in-game message have been translated. Here are some examples using a few different language packs:



Pirate Speak:

      If something fails to install or if it crashes you can always just uninstall it.

      Look at one of the guides in the menu to learn how to install something and then just do the reverse.

I used your .zip file and it would redirect me to a website. I downloaded two mojang mcpe maps! And it would show you a padge, where it will show the file name and “open with” with the mojang one it said (I think) open with mcpe. And I would love you to add a file which does the same! Idk if this is possible but it would mean a lot, hope to get a reply soon, have a great day! Good bye!!
