    Agreed,

    I join a server that supports RUS main / some English , so a very simple displayed Tab button to activates a translate command would be a nice feature to change the language suited for your understanding. :)

    There are forum that use language bbcode like [lang=en] 
    only people which set their language to english would see what is inside of it

     

    Could be something similar

    What do you mean by a "Translation function"?

    I assume what they mean is an inline chat translation like other services such as Skype has, allowing for conversations between people who don't speak the same language

    Hi
    Ideal feature in my opinion is to be automatically translator for messages and do not need any manual user interaction. Of course there should be an option to turn this feature between Automatic and Manual(Off).
    Today some games (AgeOfZ) and some messengers (WeChat) already added this feature.

    I saw this post before i sent a post here:
    https://support.discordapp.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360054545851--Feature-Request-Automatic-Message-Translate

    My main reason to post another one was to point that this feature must be translate automatically messages based on user settings.

    I hope we saw this feature sooner in Discord.

    This would be super helpful! I'm having the same issue on countless servers.

    If you use Discord in a web browser with the Google Translate extension installed then you can select some foreign text and the translate icon pops up. Click on it and you get a translation right there on the page.

    But in the Discord app (Windows) it's not as easy. You have to copy the foreign text to the Google Translate site/page.

    Discord does allow you to right-click and select "Search with Google". It should be easy for them to add another right-click option, "Translate with Google" which would act like search but instead take you to a URL like

    https://translate.google.com/?source=gtx_m#auto/en/que%20paso

    I totally agree with the above comment by Rabid (and many others who have commented), Translate is required asap for Discord to remain a competitive product, right behind needing a Spellcheck imho. 

    Since Discord has neither i'm probably moving from the Windows Discord app back to Discord within a browser like Chrome, which has auto-spellcheck, and at the whims of Google, translation.

    The fact of the matter is that Discord does not support the context menu in the Google Chrome browser. I've already written about it:
    https://support.discordapp.com/hc/ru/community/posts/360037131991/comments/360005508072
    At least read the previous comments before writing about it.

    @Valeant, I was discussing the Windows App, not the browser version. The context menu does work in the App. You just need to read my post (correctly).

    At least read the previous comments before writing about it.

    I have long read all the comments in this thread and read every new post. I wrote my proposal twice because it is very easy to implement, but none of the developers are going to fix this error. Previously, I could easily translate text in a browser using the standard function in Chrome browser, but the developers made the error and now it has become impossible to translate text in Chrome browser. It seems that the developers just don't read our comments and it is useless to write here.

  • Valeant

    Rabid I didn't write to you specifically. I wrote to those who do not understand why this proposal was created. The proposal was created in order to add a translator to Discord or at least open the context menu for the browser.
    And do not need to teach everyone how to copy and paste. Everyone can do that.
    But Милт was right. This topic is generally of the developers do not even read.

    this is a neat feature once implemented, this is already there in other chat apps like LINE and WeChat.

    I use Smoogle, I do not pay for it, and I can get the auto translate feature to work just fine. I have users texting in English, French, Spanish, Korean, and Polish... works great!

    Adding auto translate by using Google translate is already used in many games, why cannot a game messenger which many players with many different languages cannot have it!!?

     

    There are some free or trial Bot's to do it, but almost all of them failed in auto translate!!! Using manual command or right click is not a good way at all!!

    Please make this a real thing! It could also have an option to translate all the messages on a server specific basis. For instance I hang out in a discord server that is both for a swedish and english community, dominantly filled with swedes. It would be great to enable automatic translation for messages on that server (but only on the client side for user's preferred language)!

    S3v3ndeuce how did you get Smoggle to work?  Would you please tell me as I cannot figure it out at all! I don't see the options to auto translate?? Or any options for that matter.  I would really appreciate it!

    @Barbie See https://top.gg/bot/471542070817849355 for documentation on the Smoogle Translate Discord bot.

    They should really add this, so it's a lot easier communicating with people who speak a different language. I mean Microsoft Teams has it's own Translating feature built in. Should be possible for discord.

    This desperately should be included in the Discord GUI. I dont think that should be remotely possible using bots solely because the bot would need to repeat the anterior sentence in other language (or relay to another channel/similar channel in another server), and that would be prone to mess up the channel.

    An right-click to translate in the GUI would be cleaner, and the translate would happen only when the member (user) is interested in read the message, instead of automatically and in every message if a bot would do it.

    This is a Great idea- cause it takes time for google translate (low net)- and it hangs pc if u switch apps after long hours, - so its a good idea-

    I am very surprised that this was not done from the very beginning, and in the last 2-3 years it has not been done. This is very bad.

    I contacted support, they told me that it was not planned to do this at all. My grief has no boundaries.

    would actually love to have this feature, itd open a lot of borders with talking to different people easily even if translation isnt the most accurate (as it usually isnt)

    Camel game did very well in their games about this ideas but discord is bigger, still wonder why they haven't done this feature. Using translation bot is quite spamming and not suitable for server that come from different nation. 1 message = 5~10 translation omg.

    I came here to request this exact thing. I am in many server's where English is not the 1st language spoken and it is difficult and time consuming to c&p every message. A right click option or Auto-Translate feature would be the best thing since sliced bread on this app.
