Scratch Coding for Kids - Translator


This Scratch Translator project will provide you in in depth understanding of how to use the Translate & Text to Speech extensions. In this project we will code a “Translator” where a sprite will translate anything you type into a language of your choice, and read it back to you.

If you want to save your work you will have to join scratch, which is free. Just press the ‘join scratch’ tab in the top right and sign up. This is not necessary however to use the program.
