I am from Argentine and I listen a lot of music from my country and Latin America, so many bands and artist show "no information". So I edit the biography and add them. I'd like to be able to back all the bio I add but I couldn't find in which directory are they stored. Thank you so much.,

It looks like they are stored in a separate file for each artist with a "bio.dat" extension.
These are saved in the AppData\InternalCache\ArtistData folder where your MusicBee settings are saved.

For a portable installation that will be in the AppData folder in your MusicBee installation folder (and it's probably easier to back up the entire MusicBee installation folder anyway).
For a normal Windows installation it will be somewhere like C:\Users\[Your user name]\AppData\Roaming\MusicBee.

AppData is a hidden folder, so you might have to type it into the Address bar in Windows File Explorer to get to it.
Bee excellent to each other...

if you open the artist biography panel (by default is stacked under the Track Info panel) it can be edited there, right click/ Edit Biography
that itsnt supported when the biography is displayed in the Playing tracks panel
