Datawrapper is now available in Chinese, Spanish, French, and Italian

Create charts, maps, and tables in a language you understand

So far, you could create charts, maps, and tables with Datawrapper in English and German. That’s because German is the native language of many people on the Datawrapper team, and translating our tool into English enabled lots of people globally to use it.

But not everybody can read English well. Even if: using a tool in your native language is often easier than using it in a learned language. And Datawrapper is all about making it easier to create data visualization.

Today, we’re pleased to announce that you can use Datawrapper in not just English and German, but also in ChineseFrenchSpanish and Italian.

Here are a few impressions:

How to switch to another language

Visualizing data with Datawrapper is free, and you can try it out without signing up. Go to datawrapper.de and click on “Start creating”. Then open the menu ☰ in the top-right corner, select “Language” and choose any of our six available languages.

Also look out for the Output locale setting in step 2: Check & Describe or in step 3: Visualize, and change it to your language. This will translate elements within your chart (e.g., so that your source shows up as a Spanish “Fuente” instead of the English “Source”) and brings your numbers and dates in the correct format and language.

Translation mistakes? Let us know!

We worked together with professional translation agencies to translate our app into four new languages. We tried our best to communicate to them what Datawrapper is all about – but of course, they’re not data vis designers. So if you find a mistake in one of our translations, please let us know at support@datawrapper.de. We’ll fix it as soon as possible.


This is just the start – we’ll also translate our website soon, and, depending on interest, how-to articles in our Academy. If you have any questions about our tool, write to us at support@datawrapper.de. We offer support in English, German, French, Spanish, Japanese, and Swedish, but we also happily use translation tools.
