So i got some friends in my list, one of them is russian and doesn’t speak english. There are probably more out there in this situation, let’s say Nova corp for one - just happened to read their corp’s description in the forums - who say they have 80% russians and the rest international players.
To communicate to each other in non-common languages we run to a copy-paste spree of chat logs, google translate and other translation websites to see what the other said or to tell them something in their own language so we can talk - this is especially bad when some sites like google don’t support translating from english to russian into russian characters (for this i use translate.ru - top right corner you can switch language).
The idea is a built-in-chat translator, plain and simple, to be able to type in your language or any other and post your message into the receiver’s language. Probably not to get way busy with it is to collaborate with a translation site? It would be hard to start from pure scratch, which i think would be the biggest ‘no’.
So far my friends agreed with the idea, so i’m relaying this on the forums. I don’t know of any other game out there to have this feature, so it would probably be a first.
