    Hey Pinco!

    I remember the classic client once having some kind of autotranslate feature.
    Do you think it would be possible to do something like this in EC?
    Maybe as optional overlaying window from the soundtool or whatever?

    Just thought about cause I remember the language barrier when trying to help foreigners ;)

    I remember that, and the reason I turned it off - after getting bad mouthed for ignoring someone. It blocked out the speech of people using the same language sometimes! People were speaking to me and I wasn't seeing a single word of it.

    EC supports only the 3 languages available in the options: english, japanese, chinese.
    CC is based on the cliloc file that probably is also gone when the file format has changed.

    Heh, I meant the "spoken" stuff only.

    Sure, but would not bother if it was in a seperate window. Would not want it to replace the original text in the client at all myself.

    same for that, on CC there was a file but it's probably gone with the new file format...
