Addon Idea: Language Translator for non english players

A simple addon that translated all text in the chat box into the language of your preference would be really helpful during pugs when players are not from the same country. I’m not sure if this has been thought of yet.

FFXI had this because we had NA and JP players on the same servers. [Let’s Go!] =

…sometimes they didn’t translate well, but most of the time it was good.

Not sure what makes it simple, but you could potentially leverage Google Translate’s API, if you’re willing to pay for it.

Otherwise simply develop one yourself :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

No, English or bust

Imagine living in America and not at least speaking Spanish as well as English.

I have a feeling that a lot of the shorthand we use in MMO’s wouldn’t translate very well into different languages.

their Spanish is as bad as their english so i guess is ok

Kristallnacht was in response to trade wars declared on Germany. The more you know :rainbow:

this is asking for to much you might think it is simple but google translate is still almost unusable because of things like slang and context dependent translations where it will be funky or just plain cant be translated without it being confusing trust me i would love this because we had a lot of non english speakers in my guild before server died and it would have helped us out a lot but thankfully we had a few people translating raid directions for us
