    I was reading another wishlist item asking to be able to copy text directly. They were asking for the purpose of making it easier and faster to use translation tools. I realize that being able to copy text from chat could help for other reasons, so rather than derail that request with this one, I opened a new topic.

    Please research how easily Google Translate's API could be integrated into our chat application. We all share the same world; it may revolutionize/re-energize the game if we could understand each other.

    I figured as soon as the Lua integrates http posts someone would get on this.

    Given the pricing on translation services, it could pose a vulnerability, unless somehow each person is wired into their own account.
