Language is a type of communication used throughout the world, with different areas using different languages to communicate. In Club Penguin, there are four different languages players are able to play in: English, Portuguese, French, and Spanish. There were also two more languages that were later removed, which are German and Russian.

The language the player chooses determines what language the text in-game will be, as well as the website itself. The language displayed throughout ClubPenguin.com can freely be changed.

English

English is the original and most prominent language in Club Penguin. All components of the game are always made in English first, then translated into other languages.

Portuguese

Portuguese (or Português) is the second language in Club Penguin. It was added on October 15, 2008.

According to Billybob, Portuguese was added due to fans in the country of Brazil asking for Club Penguin to be translated into Portuguese. This request was heard, and an office was built in São Paulo.

The Portuguese in Club Penguin is actually Brazilian Portuguese.

For celebration of five years of Club Penguin in Portuguese, a hat named the 5 Year Celebration Hat, which uses the colors of the Brazil flag, was released in September 2013.

French

French (or Français) is the third language in Club Penguin. It was added on February 10, 2009.

For celebration of five years of Club Penguin in French, a hat named the French 5th Year Party Hat was released in March 2014.

Spanish

Spanish (or Español) is the fourth language in Club Penguin. It was added on June 29, 2009.

For celebration of five years of Club Penguin in Spanish, a hat named the Spanish Fifth Year Hat was released in September 2014. Unlike the previous two language-based hats, this hat was only available for a few days.

German

German (or Deutsch) was the fifth language in Club Penguin. It was added on November 3, 2011.

On June 30, 2015, it was announced that Club Penguin would no longer support German and Russian. On September 2, 2015, both languages were removed.

Notably, German is the only language (aside from English) to not have any items commemorating its release.

Russian

In celebration of the launch of Club Penguin in Russian, the Russian Welcome Event was held in March 2014, and also had the release of the Welcome Hat item. A furniture item named the Matryoshka Doll was given to the first 1000 players to buy a membership in Russian.

Trivia

  • Yeti is the only server not to change its name in 3 different languages: English, Spanish, and French.
  • The current languages are all Indo European languages.
  • The Russian Club Penguin logo is the only one that is written in a language other than English.
  • Item names that are not translated from English into other languages are padded with two number signs on each side in the internal game files. These generally include bait items, or items that are/were only available regionally (such as Innocent Smoothies fruit items). For example, the Orange Costume is named Disfraz de naranja in Spanish, but in German and Russian, it is labeled ##Orange Costume## due to not being officially translated.
  • There was a Chinese test version of Club Penguin that surfaced on November 20, 2010. However, access was later removed, and no announcement has been made since.
