Default Translator optional.

So, I am going to start by saying I know people hate me, and i'm not even going to try to defend myself if you say something mean.

But, what I wanted to say is that the translators have been irrating my friends and I. Like thismorning I said Hello (WITHOUT THE H, like I'm british) and that i'm pet sitting this week, and it said hello, this is the week I sit on pets.

I can see why they'd be helpfull if you're from another country (or english isn't your first language.), but for things like my example, I dont see why they're nessacary. So I think it should be a option to have the translator on.(:

That would be a good idea But I'm not sure if vBulletin can do that

Default Re: Translator optional.

Well, it wouldn't have said that unless you were using the translator. If you don't want it to happen, don't use it.

If you weren't, I'm super confused as to what you're talking about. Do you mean you wrote something in another language and then let the translator translate it to English and it came out wrong? Or something else?

Whenever you post something in another language, it's automatically changed to english.

I think that's a great idea
The translator has really been bugging me, too...even though it's a nice new addition
You don't always need it, so why always have it on?

Default Re: Translator optional.

I think that would be really nice. I tried to type that I wanted to be a chef, and it translated it into 'I want to be a leader'. It's sometimes funny, (like you wanting to sit on pets, LOL) but sort of annoying too.
Great idea!

[lang=es]Uso el traductor cuando hablo en el club de espanol... es muy util.. pero.. cuando algunos personas teclear una palabra cual es tambien una palabra en un otro idioma, lo traduce

Tienes un buen idea [/lang]

Default Re: Translator optional.

That's kind of funny, actually, I sit on pets. LOL, but seriously, that's a good idea... maybe a button like the "Quote message in reply?" and "Show your signature" options in your post.

Default Re: Translator optional.

Thankfully, I have never had a post "translated". I have seen other posts and it confuses me until I focus on the post and realize that the post is being translated.
I think it is a nice addition but can become problematic if it translates incorrectly like in your example. Someone could take that the wrong way and think that you dislike animals and report the post.
I agree with you, the translator should be an option.
