You can pass a comma-separated list of third-party builtin modules which should be translated along with the standard modules within pypy.module.

The module names need to be fully qualified (i.e. have a . in them), be on the $PYTHONPATH and not conflict with any existing ones, e.g. mypkg.somemod.

Once translated, the module will be accessible with a simple:

import somemod
