An example of how Python class inheritance can be used to translate the method and parameter names of the Sense HAT API for non English speakers. In this example I have just prefixed the original English method and parameter names with en_ to simulate a translated version of the name. Methods that contain parameters needing translation must be redefined in the parent class, whereas methods with no parameters and properties can be just copied outside of the class definition using the assignment operator.

Example consuming code:

from sense_hat_en import *
sense = SenseHat_en()
sense.en_show_message("Pi!", en_text_colour=(255, 0, 0))

Rules to follow for translation:

  • The class names ending with _en can be translated, all instances of the name must be changed
  • Any method or parameter names starting with en_ can be translated, all instances of the name must be changed
  • The global variables starting with EN_ can be translated
  • Anything not starting with en_ or EN_ should be left alone
  • Do lots of testing to make sure you haven't broken anything, take the code examples from here and ensure the translated version of each example works correctly
