readers’ language

Word cloud of many languages that Datawrapper offers for data visualization creation, like french, english, hebrew, spanish, turkish, japanese, and many more.
Datawrapper supports over 50 languages, right-to-left format, and multiple number formats.
More than 50 output languages

Datawrapper visualizations can be published in more than 50 languages, and our localization options don’t end with words: number formats, dates, and other visualization elements are automatically adjusted for your target audience when you choose an output locale.

Here’s what changing the locale does exactly:

Datawrapper’s output locale adjusts numbers…

Number formats that work in one country may look strange or even wrong in another. Datawrapper adjusts number formats based on your output locale so no one will mistake thousands for decimals when it matters.

For example, the German locale (de-DE) will turn thousands separators into dots (10.000), while choosing Swiss German (de-CH) will convert them into spaces (10 000).

There’s no need to manually add month or weekday names in your language to a dataset — Datawrapper will simply translate them.

For example, if you upload the date “23/04/2019,” Datawrapper can make an Italian “Aprile” out of that month.

Or a Chinese “四月.”

Or a Finnish “huhtikuu.”

Hebrew? Arabic? Persian? No problem for Datawrapper. We support right-to-left languages in all our chart and map types. When selected, visualization elements automatically reverse their alignment – including text, x-axes, and table columns.

¿Habla español? Datawrapper does.

We want to make it as easy as possible to create beautiful charts, maps, and tables. For many people, that means doing so in their native language.

That’s why you can use the Datawrapper app in six different languages: English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, and Chinese.
