I find the translator irritating when it randomly comes on and changes your wording to say something completely different.

Oh! I see what you mean now. Yeah, it actually is annoying. Especially if you're purposely speaking in another language and want someone to read your post in that language.

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.(:

No one hates you minimaid...

and you are quite right, this feature is very annoying when it comes on randomly. It's made me say some pretty goofy things too.

I think that Google looks at your post, and if it (the program) thinks that one of your words is a foreign word, like "chef" in Desty's example, it automatically translates for you.

I don't know how to turn it off.

Default Re: Translator optional.

I discovered this in a number of trades.

"FR sent! " if posted on its own in a trade becomes:

[lang=fr]FR sent! [/lang]

FR is the official abbreviation for 'French' or 'Francais'. And, in french, the word 'sent' (or the verb 'sentir') is the verb to feel.

Webberlily is right, the translator comes on automatically in the strangest of places. It'd be nice if it were optional, but I don't see how that would work for everyone. You could say I don't want my posts translated, but if someone else has the translator on, what would your post look like to them? It's a good idea, but I don't think it would work.

Default Re: Translator optional.

It would be a great idea if computer programs were actually capable of translating but until that day (which in my opinion isn't around the corner), I think they are more confusing than helpful! Of course we would all love it if it were really that easy - just push a button and presto - but languages are as complex as people and just as difficult to translate! And what a pity to lose the colour and vibrancy of a foreign phrase!
Vive la différence!

You fixed it Webberlilly!!!

Yah, yesterday I said 'but the...' and it said 'shoes the...'. It's a little bit annoying.

I agree. If I post a regular English message, it gets all HNJAbsdwme.

Default Re: Translator optional.

i like the idea. i said err on the DCT and it changed it to are in some strange language.

and like Jenga_Jane says, on the GE "FR sent!" turns into "EN feels!" and it gets a wee bit annoying.
