Translate endpoint overview

See how translation endpoints help explain and contextualize climate footprint with everyday examples

The unit “kg of CO2 equivalents (kgCO2e)” is a useful quantity when measuring greenhouse gas emissions, but it is unfamiliar to most people. Through our translate endpoints, we help users comprehend their climate footprint by translating it into something that is more tangible to them. For e.g. a car/plane journey between two cities, or the energy usage of an appliance for a given amount of time.

There are currently four different translate endpoints that can help explain and contextualise climate footprints for different user groups  and emission ranges. They all accept a number of kgCO2e as input and output content (translations) that can be used directly to explain the CO2e number.  We have the following endpoints:
