Read in Other Languages

Many suttas have been translated into other modern languages. It’s easy to find the ones that exist on SuttaCentral.net.

Set your preferred language

Go to SuttaCentral.net‘s home page. Click on the three dot icon in the top right corner:

Then choose your preferred language. You can still read the English translations, but now the translations of your preferred language will be easier to find.

Finding the Sutta

Follow one of the links in the email to SuttaCentral.net. For example:

Once you are there, Click on the Parallels icon in the top right:

Now, any translations in your preferred language will be at the top of the list. To see the other translations, just scroll down.

Note: Choosing a preferred language will not always change the language on the interface. Only a few languages have this full support, as you see above in German. And of course not all suttas are translated into all languages. But SuttaCentral is a volunteer project so if you would like to help with translations in any way, please contact them!
