Python’s Faker library for non-english languages

The Faker library in Python supports generating fake data in a wide range of languages. By default, the library generates data in English, but you can specify a different language by passing a language code to the Faker constructor.

Here’s an example of how you can generate fake data in French using the Faker library:

from faker import Faker

fake = Faker('fr_FR')
name =
address = fake.address()

In this example, we create a Faker object with the ‘fr_FR’ language code to generate fake data in French. We then use the name() and address() functions to generate fake French names and addresses respectively.

The Faker library supports many other languages as well. You can find a full list of supported languages and their corresponding language codes in the official documentation:
