However, Microsoft considers this feature as experimental, since DevTools translation is a work-in-progress, so it is hidden behind a flag in Microsoft Edge.

To Have DevTools Translated in New Languages,

  1. Open Microsoft Edge.
  2. Type edge://flags into the address bar.
  3. Find the flag Enable localized Developer Tools.
  4. Set it to Enabled.

You are done.

The Redmond software giant is going to add support for more languages, including right-to-left languages like Arabic.

Microsoft recently released the first stable version of Microsoft Edge Chromium to the public.

For pre-release versions, Microsoft is currently using three channels to deliver updates to Edge Insiders. The Canary channel receives updates daily (except Saturday and Sunday), the Dev channel is getting updates weekly, and the Beta channel is updated every 6 weeks. Microsoft is going to support Edge Chromium on Windows 7, 8.1 and 10, alongside macOS, Linux (coming in the future) and mobile apps on iOS and Android.
