The choice of languages is a feature allowing players to specify the language in which menus and tooltips will display within their Minecraft client. The language menu can be accessed via a button in the main menu to the left of the "options" button, as well as from the options menu. Previously, separate language packs were needed to change the in-game language to one other than English.

The first 56 languages were added in Minecraft 1.1. As of the 1.16 update, there are 119 languages, including fictional ones such as Klingon and Pirate Speak.

Each language also has a font, although most languages share the same font.
