Locale Packs

Uppy speaks multiple languages, English being the default. You can use a locale pack to translate Uppy into your language of choice.

List of our locale packs

Using a locale pack from npm

This is the recommded way. Install @uppy/locales package from npm, then choose the locale you’d like to use: @uppy/locales/lib/LANGUAGE_CODE.

npm i @uppy/core @uppy/locales
const Uppy = require('@uppy/core')
const German = require('@uppy/locales/lib/de_DE') // see below for the full list of locales
const uppy = Uppy({
  debug: true,
  locale: German

Using a locale pack from CDN

Add a <script> tag with Uppy bundle and the locale pack you’d like to use. You can copy/paste the link from the CDN column in the locales table. The locale will attach itself to the Uppy.locales object.

<script src=""></script>
<script src=""></script>

var uppy = Uppy.Core({
  debug: true,
  locale: Uppy.locales.de_DE

Overriding locale strings for a specific plugin

Many plugins come with their own locale strings, and the packs we provide consist of most of those strings. You can, however, override a locale string for a specific plugin, regardless of whether you are using locale pack or not. See the plugin documentation for the list of locale strings it uses (for example, here’s Dashboard).

const Uppy = require('@uppy/core')
const DragDrop = require('@uppy/drag-drop')
const Russian = require('@uppy/locales/lib/ru_RU')
const uppy = Uppy({
  debug: true,
  autoProceed: true,
  locale: Russian
uppy.use(DragDrop, {
  target: '.UppyDragDrop',
  // We are using the ru_RU locale pack (set above in Uppy options),
  // but you can also override specific strings like so:
  locale: {
    strings: {
      browse: 'выберите ;-)'

Contributing a new language

If you speak a language we don’t yet support, you can contribute! Here’s how you do it:

  1. Go to the uppy/locales directory in the Uppy GitHub repo.
  2. Go to en_US.js and copy its contents, as English is the most up-to-date locale.
  3. Press “Create new file”, name it according to the language_COUNTRY format, make sure to use underscore _ as a divider. Examples: en_US, en_GB, ru_RU, ar_AE. Variants should be trailing, e.g.: sr_RS_Latin for Serbian Latin vs Cyrillic.
  4. Paste what you’ve copied from en_US.js and use it as a starting point to translate strings into your language.
  5. When you are ready, save the file — this should create a PR that we’ll then review 🎉 Thanks!
You can’t perform that action at this time.
