The game would work much better with an auto translation setting in place so people dont leave a clan when they arnt understood

An auto-translate feature would be very nice.

But – if one at least could implement a feature of selecting/copying text one would be a step on the way.

Either copy all, select and copy or both.

This goes for chat as well as clan wall posts, clan descriptions and the like.

As of now I'm using tools to capture part of screen and sending that to OCR services that gives me a half way result.

This solution is, I imagine, (no pun intended), harder on mobiles then PC's - and a obstacle none the less.

Again: auto-translate would be the best, but realize (some) of the complexity in that endeavor.

Hi Guys , I most definitely agree , Vikings needs a Auto Translator , Its more than frustrating 😫 I have emailed you guys and requested for this before, But I got over it, but now especially with Jotenheim Event , we need to be able to communicate accordingly or have the option, the chat isn’t helpful with out this feature available, it does really frustrate a lot of players , I know many kingdom effected and many player quit cause can not communicate , when I can better understand players , our game will be much more enjoyable . Also our clan had recently merged and we would highly recommend a translator, I have played a game in the past that has this feature like KOA , so this has been a possible feature around for a long time and I know you guys can do it 😉

Many player and kingdoms would like this feature in Vikings war of clans , I really hope to see it. In the next Update , 😍😍😍🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 Please consider this promptly and enhance our games experience asap😘 thank you

Though auto translate would be a big help... why can you not copy and paste. thats a basic computer function, why does it not work here ?

Yes we need Auto Translation or copy and paste.

This has been suggested many times and the need for it is obvious. While you are working on a translator, why not give us copy and paste abilities. To and from outside translators. That has to be much easier to do.

I agree with this and it should be very simple ... I don't understand how games still don't implement some form of "translate this" button that uses Google translate.
At times my madness can be sheer genius, then again, other times it's just plain ... madness.

Auto Translate - Yes Please! Copy and Paste - No Thanks.

 World chat features are entirely dysfunctional in games with copy and paste. It only sounds like it would be nice to be able to copy to Google translate because now and then the language barriers can be frustrating. However, I guarantee that if players could copy and paste there would be a non-stop sh*tstorm of spam, trolls and nonsense-in my opinion, we are better off struggling to find alternative methods and bilingual helpers than having copy/paste functions.

Agreed on the spam from pasting to chat, though they could implement only a highlight and copy feature and not a paste feature, though I kinda understand why it's Potentially not a feature.

OpenGL ( I'm assuming Plarium uses WebGL ) is not a part of any window manager framework for portability reasons ( Windows draws textboxes, buttons and windows in a different way than what Linux does, or mobile devices for that matter, so implementing those methods would break portability ).  As such the engine used to draw the graphics of the game doesn't have the standard features such as printing text to a button, let alone higlighting and copying it and one way to implement those things is through third party components/OpenGL GUI Toolkits that has done the work to implement it.  It could very well be that the chat interface is third party so it may take a while for it to be implemented if they do decide to allow it.

If someone wants to spam you they will, I have received many spam msgs about my clan etc... so the translate IMO would help considerably in correspondence with other clans and members. Also now with home, foreign and clan chat going, I have no idea what is being said most of the time except in clan chat. Very frustrating, this needs to be fixed and with the income plarium makes there is no reason why this has not been addressed and like previous people have said, even if we could copy n paste that would be a start. I have a message that I assume is written in Russian but I cannot translate it, because I do not have the same alphabet keys, so I have no idea what is said, nor can I copy it into a translator. This is crap, fix this.
