Golang : Constant and variable names in native language



Tags : golang const var native-language

Stumbled upon a discussion in Quora about the abilities of Golang. One of them is that Go allows developers to use their own native language and font to identify constants and variables.

I've tried couple of languages with the help of Google Translate. Most will work except for languages from South-Asia( as of Go version 1.4) :

 package main

 import (
  "fmt"
 )

 func main() {

  // Chinese
  var 你好 string = "Hi!"
  fmt.Println(你好)

  // Hebrew
  var היי string = "Hi!"
  fmt.Println(היי)

  //  Arabic
  const مرحبا = "Hi!"
  fmt.Println(مرحبا)

  // Greek
  var γεια string = "Hi!"
  fmt.Println(γεια)

  // Japanese
  var こんにちは string = "Hi!"
  fmt.Println(こんにちは)

  // Polish
  var cześć string = "Hi!"
  fmt.Println(cześć)

  // Ukrainian
  var привіт string = "Hi!"
  fmt.Println(привіт)

  // Hindi
  // var हाय string = "Hi!" // will cause error
  // fmt.Println(हाय)

  // Bengali
  //var হাই string = "Hi!" // will cause error
  //fmt.Println(হাই)

  // Gujarati
  //var હાય string = "Hi!" // will cause error
  //fmt.Println(હાય)

  // Tamil
  //var வணக்கம் string = "Hi!" // will cause error
  //fmt.Println(வணக்கம்)
 }

Output :

Hi!

Hi!

Hi!

Hi!

Hi!

Hi!

Hi!
