Roblox is one of the games with the highest market growth, boasting over 226 million monthly active users (according to RTrack). The popularity of Roblox is due in part to the wide range of incredible Roblox characters and in-game experiences as well as its extensive language support. The game is available in 12 different languages and is played by users in over 40 different nations. Adding Hindi language support to the game now appears to be an attempt by Roblox creators to reach an even wider audience. Let’s investigate how.
Roblox is Hiring Hindi Localization Specialist
A Senior Hindi Localization Specialist position has suddenly become available at Roblox, according to their official website. The US is the location of this job. The hired person will work on the game’s text filter and user experience, according to the job description. They might also be asked to translate Hindi versions of Roblox’s promotional materials and gaming features.
As part of the localization team, you will have the chance to shape Roblox’s future in India and around the world by working with our product and engineering teams to improve everyone’s user experience, according to the job description. Roblox seems to be making an effort to grow its localization crew by adding more widely used tongues to the mix. This is a warm gesture that could attract lots of new players to the game.
Which Languages Does Roblox Support
Roblox supports around 45 languages, according to the game’s user interface. Along with other Indian languages, Hindi is also included on the list, however Roblox in Hindi has very little functionality and doesn’t even modify the UI names. However, only these languages are available for the in-game chat, customer service, and minigames:
- Chinese – Simplified
- Chinese – Traditional
The identical list may be found in Roblox’s official localization guide as well. According to the job description, Hindi should soon be included to the list of Roblox localizations. Following that, you will get access to customer service and other Hindi-language mini-games.
Thai speakers make up less than half of all Hindi speakers worldwide, according to Wikipedia and its sources. However, given that Roblox has also listed a job posting for a Senior Thai Localization Specialist, the scenario in-game appears to be very different. The job description for this position is very similar to the one for the Hindi Localization Specialist position.
