Raspberry Pi Foundation

Building a community of volunteer translators to bring digital making to the world

Team Lead

Nina Szymor

Solution Summary

Coding education programs are plentiful, but to impact the most disadvantaged communities, resources must be translated into a wide range of languages. To expand global access to their Code Club learning materials, Raspberry Pi Foundation is building a Translation Community to localize resources into many languages.

The solution uses machine translation tools to initially translate content, and the Translation Community edits translations and uploads content to Code Club’s learning platform. This project will empower young people all over the world, teaching them how to build their ideas with computers.
