Yea, should be reasonable to add. Just had a quick look at the UI code and the number button strings are not currently exposed for translation. I think the bigger issue though is that the numerical output results will also need parsing/converting – I guess this is feasible as long as we are just talking simple character for character replacements. If you'd like me to take a more serious look could you open a ticket on for the Calculate component and assign it to me (garycmartin), most activity development is upstream at Sugar Labs.

This ticket should be migrated to "component = calculator-activity" as maintenance of this activity has moved there.
