The Language Category.
The Language Forums (called "Scratch Around the World" in the forum interface) is a group of forums in the Scratch Forums where Scratchers can discuss Scratch in other languages and discuss the translation of the Scratch interface.

The Forums

There are two types of forums: Forums for discussing Scratch in languages other than English, and a forum for discussing the translation of the Scratch interface. The exception to this rule is the Africa forum, which is meant to "... aid with coordination of Scratch resources and events related to the African continent", according to a stickied topic in the forum.[1]

The Forums

These are the forums in this section:

In each forum, excluding the African forum, there is a stickied topic called [Language name] only forum, with the message:

Please post only messages in [Language] in this forum. Other messages will be moved or removed. Thanks for being respectful.

Also please note that this forum is not intended for practicing foreign language skills - it is for the convenience of non-English speaking Scratchers. It is okay to answer posts, if you can be helpful, but do not use the forums simply to practice your language skills. Thanks again Forum Smiley - Smile.png

An example can be seen here.

If a [Eng:Scratcher|Scratcher]] wishes to discuss Scratch in a language that does not have its own forum, they can propose for the language to be made into its own forum in the Translating Scratch forum. Once a language gets enough support there, a forum will be made for it. In the meanwhile, a Scratcher may use the Other Languages forum to post in other languages.

Activity

Languages Forums are mostly used by Scratch communities of non English-speaking countries and those who can speak English and foreign languages too. The French and Japanese speaking Scratch communities are most active in their forums. Some language forums are not very active, such Norwegian and Catalan; most native English speaking Scratchers do not accurately know those languages, and would rather post in the original English forums.Template:Sqi/cn
