Group Chat Translator

Group Chat Translator automatically translates group chat from foreign languages to a language selected by you. The original language of the message is being determined automatically.

Group Chat Translator requires active SmartBots subscription and does not require any other payments.

How it Works

When a text is typed into the chat that is not in the desired language, Translator automatically processes it and displays the translation back in group chat:


If a message is typed into chat that is in the language you want other messages translated to, it will be ignored. Click here for a list of Languages that the translator can translate into.

Setting up The Device

First of all, you need to create account with SmartBots and list your group with Group Chat Translator service turned on. Click Group Chat Translator Service for more info.

The bot also requires the ability to join group chat for the translator to function.

When your SmartBots account is up and running, rez the Translator device and configure it.

Group Chat Translator can be configured by two easy ways. The first way uses configuration notecard and second way utilizes pop-up menus.

  • A. Config notecard
  • B. Pop-up dialog

Edit _config notecard and specify the required values:


The steps are simple and you just fill out your group name, Security code and type in the desired language.

The configuration dialog appears when you rez the device for the first time. You need to specify your group name and Security code:

All you do is type in the required information (Group name or secret code) and press "Submit" button.

Afterwards you can change the language by click on the device and selecting "Chang Lang" or by editing the note card manually.
