Abstract

The classic board game Scrabble is currently available in 22 different languages. The goal of this project is to write an online version of Scrabble with vastly expanded multilingual support. Googletrans is a Python library that implements the Google Translate API. This program will use the detect language feature of Googletrans to check the validity of a player’s Scrabble word in the desired language. Other aspects of this project include designing the Scrabble board, creating letter tiles to represent the characters of the different supported languages, and implementing the games mechanics in a point-and-click fashion. The final version of the game will be available online.
