Data languages

  1. Introduction
  2. Languages

Live-score API's football data supports translations of team names in several different languages. In this page you can read more about this service.


Due to the high interest in our football data, we have started supporting several major languages for some of our major API endpoints. To make it easy for you all you need to do is add another parameter to your already working live score API integrated software, without the need of making any other changes. Many of our football API endpoints support language translations. You can find specific information about these possibilities on the endpoints' dedicated documentation pages.

If you notice any missing translations, do not hesitate to add them yourself though our volunteer as translator functionality in your profile. You need to be logged in.

If you need our football data in another language, that we do not support yet, please let us know trough our contact information.


As it is right now, we support English, Arabic, Farsi, and Russian as translations for the names of the teams. And 27 more languages for all the data related to the FIFA World Cup 2022. In order, to apply the translation in your code, you need to add the lang parameter to the URL that you are already using. The language codes that we use in our football data service are specified by ISO standard nomenclature: ISO 639-1. In the table below, we have listed the changes that you should do if you want to receive data from our football api services in the language that you want.
