Can be use with IM
For now LSL scripts can not listen directly to IM, and therefore can not translate Instant Messages. However Q-Translator provides private channels to bring in private IMs using copy and paste. The solution is not perfect but is the only currently feasible.

Reduce Spam
  • Don't translate messages that are already into target language,
  • Don't translate messages when translation is identical to original,
  • Translation Filters,
  • Automatic Detect Translators.
Translation Filters
Messages to be translated can be filtered on these criteria:
  • Others (translate messages from others),
  • Objects (translate messages emitted by objects),
  • Me (translate your talk),
  • Avatars in list (translate only messages from a restricted list of avatars),
  • Handy management of the list of avatars from menu.
Automatic Detect Translators
Q-Translator detects when a message is emitted by any of these translators: Q-Translator, X-LANG, UT v10, AF, MH, MT, XIN, Simbolic. You can enable or disable the translation of messages issued by other translators. In all cases the spam is greatly reduced. In fact, Q-Translator remove all formatted made by translators (language indicators) to rebuild the message, it will be able to detect the language precisely and correctly translate the message.

Fully works in no-script area
If you attach your HUD in a script area and you move into an no-script area Q-Translator will continue to operate. Now the HUD interface will also work as you were in a normal script area.

Choose your HUD

Q-Translator is shipped into 18 localized versions:
The user interface is forced to use one language independently of the ones used for translation. Eighteen localized version are available for now : Czech, Dutch, English, French, German, Hungarian, Itialiano, Japanese, Lithuanian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish.

Wear your HUD

Use any attachment point

You can attach Q-Translator on any HUD attachment point. No more HUD lost! Q-Translator uses an automatic system to precisely position the HUD on the edges of Second Life Viewer™. For bottom right a specific shift is used to prevent being hidden by the media toolbar. Center & center2 attachment points can be used as middle left and middle right. It remembers its position until you use another attachment point.



Important The system used by Q-Translator to autoposition the HUD works differently for SL Viewer 1.x series and SL Viewer 2.x. Unfortunately there is no way to for a script to detect which version you are using. By default SL Viewer 2.x is used, if you are still using old viewer version type the commande /8 hud viewer 1.

Resize your HUD

You want the HUD to be very small to enhance the view in world. You're short sight and need a large HUD. You can change the default size of the Q-Translator HUD to one that suits you using the command size.




for the smaller size
/8 hud size 1
for the larger size
/8 hud size 10
use any number between 1 and 10 until you find yours !

Minimize your HUD

Once worn you can minimize your Q-Translator by clicking on upper left arrow. To restore it to the standard user interface, click on "Q-Trans" tab.



Let's Play ! Translation Principles

My Language / Foreign Language

You will need to setup two major languages that will be used for translations.

The language in blue ((ml)) is your native language and will be used for translating what is said by others on public chat. Click on the blue icon to change it.
The language in red ((fl)) is the foreing language that will be used when translating what you say in public chat. Click on red icon to modify it. In both cases a dialog will popup showing the 34 available languages.

Q-Translator uses ISO 639 icons to display languages.

Different Translation mode in details

Q-Translator will translate using five different manners.

Using for public chat:

  • Anything said by avatars and objects in public chat (whatever the language they use Q-Translator will autodetect the source language) will be translated into your language ((ml)) (results will be private and shown only for you)
  • Anything said by you in public chat will be translated into the chosen foreign language ((fl)) (results are shown in public as the original sentence)
  • For public use, anything you will say in the "to-public" customized channel (/1 by default) will be translated from your language ((ml)) into foreign language ((fl)). Result is shown on public chat, with this option your original message won't be shown. Use this option if you want to hide the original sentence.

Using it for IM:
There is actually no way for a script to listen to what is said in IM messaging, thus you cannot have an automatic system for translating in IM. However you can use two private channels and copy/paste messages between IM and these private channels to handle this situation. See the chapter Using Q-Translator with IM.

Using Auto lang

While doing translation Q-Translator can auto detect the language of any message. The two Auto lang buttons (A) enable this detection. When disabled the default language will be used for translating ((ml)) for your message and ((fl)) for any public messages. Depending of the situation the two options can be useful:

  • Until you don't use several languages when you speek, it is better to disable Auto Detect Language for Me.
  • When you're in a public place where many different languages are spoken, enabling Auto lang for Others might be best. But as any automatic language process, some mistakes can be made during the detection of languages, for single words, idioms or short sentences.
  • When people next to you are using the same language, for instance English, disabling Auto Lang for Others can give a better result.

Show Lang On/Off

You can use the Show Lang button to show/hide the display in public chat of source and target language used by Q-Translator. When enabled an additional header will be added to translation (en->fr)

Using the Spellchecker


Auto Spellcheck

Q-Translator includes a spellchecker. The spellchecker button can be used to automatically spellcheck before translating.

Auto Spellcheck is a major feature!. Let's take an example that will clearly show you why. Set your ((ml)) to English (en) and ((fl)) to French (fr).

Test with translating into French this terrible sentence
Uncheck Auto Lang & Spellcheck
/2 ths is a tst with awfull erors

Without spellcheck (what all competitors will shown)
ths est un tst avec awfull erors

With Q-Translator Auto-Spellcheck feature
Ceci est un test avec des erreurs terribles

Using the spellchecker without translation

You can use the spellchecker without translation while setting the ((fl)) language identical to the ((ml)) language.

Show Spellchecker correction

You can use Show Spellcheck button to show/hide corrections made by Q-Spellcheck. When enabled, if any correction is made by the spellcheck, an additional message will be shown "Q- SpellCheck: ....

Spellcheck commands

You can also use spellcheck with handy command spellcheck or shorcut s.

/8 s sentence will spellcheck the sentence using the ((ml)) language
/8 sml sentence will spellcheck the sentence using the ((ml)) language
/8 sfl sentence will spellcheck the sentence using ((fl)) language
/8 sen sentence will spellcheck the sentence using English
/8 sfr sentence will spellcheck the sentence using French
/8 s[langid] sentence will spellcheck the sentence using language specified by langid parameter

Don't use a space between s and langid.
See chapter below for the list of language id.

Filtering public chat translation

The translation filters can limit translation according to a number of criteria.

Others / Me / Objects / Avatars List

Q-Translator is listenning to public chat and will translate everything depending on the who filters you have enabled. There are four filters available : Public / Me / Objects / Avatars in List
When enabled will translate everything said by other avatars in public chat into ((ml))
When enabled will translate everything you say on public channel into the current ((fl))
When enabled will also translate messages emitted by objects
When enabled will restraint translation to avatars in your personal list

NB: Public and Avatars List filters cannot be selected together. You can either filter Public (all avatars) or Avatars List (only those specified in list).

Manage your personal Avatar List

Use the add button to add an avatar to your personal list
Use remove button to remove an avatar from your personal list.

Controlling the Chat Output Method


By default Q-Translator will use Say when translating what you are saying. Put you can control the chat output methode and chooses between Private / Whisper / Say / Shout. Click on the micro on right upper part of the HUD.

OwnerSay might be useful to learn a new language. You can speak your native language all the time wearing Q-Translalor but having result translated to you only without bothering anyone in public chat.

Whisper can be used to reduce the spam. Say is the normal way. And Shout can be used if you really need to spread your voice.


Using Q-Translator with IM

For now LSL scripts can not listen directly to IM, and therefore can not translate Instant Messages. However Q-Translator provides private channels to bring in private IMs using copy and paste. The solution is not perfect but is the only currently feasible.

Lets see an example to illustrate the use of private channels.

An example with IM

Your friend J0 speaks in French and you speak English. Your Q-Translator is set up like this: English as My Language ((en)) and French as Foreign Language ((fr)).

You receive an IM from J0
J0:Salut, comment vas tu aujourd'hui ?

You will need to :
Select that message "Salut, comment vas tu aujourd'hui ?" in your IM windows,
Copy it using [Ctrl + C],
Type in chat "/3"
And paste the message using [Ctrl + V]

/3 Salut, comment vas tu aujourd'hui ?

This command is private, only you will receive the translation
Q-Translator (fr->en): Hi, how you going today?

Now you want to answer using your native language
Type :
/2 Very well and you ? I'm using my new translator machine right now ...

You will receive this translation
Q-Translator (en->fr): Très bien et vous? Je suis sur ma nouvelle machine de traduction pour le moment ...

Select the message "Très bien et vous? Je suis sur ma nouvelle machine de traduction pour le moment ..."
Copy it using [Ctrl + C]
Paste into the IM windows

Forcing default language

While using personal channels you can force the a language other than the default language by using the force language parameter. Use "!" char followed with one of language id.

For instance if your default foreign language ((fr)) and you type:
/2 !de this is a try in German

The "This is a try" sentence will be translated into "German" instead of French.
Q-Translator (en->de): Dies ist ein Versuch in Deutsch

NB: When using // in chat, the Second Life Viewer remembers the last channel you used. This might be a quicker way to use your private channels.

Translators Engine

Q-Translator can use three different translator engines: google, bing, yandex.
By default it uses google.

Be aware the auto spell check feature and transliteration are only available when you use google translator.
It has al and switches to bing if google banned the SIM ip address

You can force to use a translator engine with command /8te
  • /8te google
  • /8te bing
  • /8te yandex

To set the translator default add "def". It is the translator that is automatically selected when you move from SIM
  • /8te google def
  • /8te bing def
  • /8te yandex def

Yandex

To use yandex translator you will need to register your own personnal key
Go to Yandex Translate API
Click on get an api key.
If you don't have yandex login click register.
Check "I have read the User Agreement and agree to the terms of service."
Then get api key

You will have something like this
trnsl.1.1.20150808T085211Z.5eb09b5f57778b8b.4d0d99431766e01e861e87271381c5114ebf6fb2

Set your yandex apikey into q-translator
/8tekey yandex [yourkey]
/8tekey yandex trnsl.1.1.20150808T085211Z.5eb09b5f57778b8b.4d0d99431766e01e861e87271381c5114ebf6fb2

You can add your api key adding this line into .ini notecard
tekey yandex trnsl.1.1.20150808T085211Z.5eb09b5f57778b8b.4d0d99431766e01e861e87271381c5114ebf6fb2

You can check at any time your translation consumption there: Yandex Personal Account

Quality versus Speed

Depending on the options you use for Auto Lang and Auto Spellcheck, the number of requests needed for a complete translation changes. See the table below.
Auto Lang (Off) / Auto Spellcheck (Off)1 request: translate
Auto Lang (On) / Auto Spellcheck (Off)1 request: translate
Auto Lang (Off) / Auto Spellcheck (On)sometimes 2 requests: spellcheck -> translate
Auto Lang (On) / Auto Spellcheck (On)sometimes 2 requests : detect -> translate

Q-Translator Commands

Q-Translator can be controlled using typed commands. These typed commands are listed below and are given on a specific command channel (which can be set/changed via typed command). The default channel is 8.

Command example:
/8 help

is needed
[parameter] is optional

All the commands you type on the public channel can be setup in a notecard named .ini . You can find this notecard into the contents of Q-Translator.

/8 channel <channelid> <channelnumber|off> [listen-to-object:true|false]
You can use the channel command to modify the channel used by Q-Translator for any of the following channel-id: command, to-public, to-ml, to-fl, to-ac.
If you use off as the channel number the channel will be removed.
You can use shortcut c instead of command channel.

The default channel number are
1 for the public translation channel to foreign language "to-public"
2 for the private translation channel to foreign language "to-fl"
3 for the private translation channel to your native language "to-ml"
4 for the accentued language "to-fa"
8 for the command channel of Q-Translator "command"

You can setup the channel listening to your own object as well. This can be handy if you want to use q-translator as a translation engine for other HUDs.
Simply edit the notecard. ini file and add "true" as the third third parameter for each channel that you want to be listening to your objects.

For instance to allow personal channel "to-public" to listen to objects you own
replace
channel to-public 1
with
channel to-public 1 true

How to Setup SL Viewer with Windows Fonts

Editing the .ini notecard

You can set up your Q-Translator by editing the ".ini" notecard you will find in the Q-Translator contents. Before editing this notecard, I strongly advise you to make a backup copy in your inventory to refer to, in case your edited copy becomes corrupt.

For altering the ".ini" notecard, wear the Q-Translator. Next rightclick on the object and select 'Edit' in the pie menu. Select the "content" tab. Double click the ".ini" notecard to open and edit it.

Every command that works as a typed command (see above) can be used in the notecard. Any lines that begin with a double slash will be treated as comments and will be ignored.

Once you have finished editing the notecard, save it and Q-Translator will detect the changes, you don't need to reset your Q-Translator in order for the scripts to pick up these changes.

Here is the .ini notecard shipped with your item:

// ==COMMAND CHANNEL==

Have fun! Use accent languages

You can use Q-Translator to chat with a fake accent. You can select an accent language with the last (red) button or the command /8 al [accent]: where [accent] is one of bork, pirate, oldenglish, daffy, elmer, morse, l33t or scrambler.

The channel into which you type, in order to display in the public chat with the fake accent, is called the to-al channel. This is defaulted to channel 4. For example:

/4 To be or not to be, that is the question; Whether it's nobler in the mind to suffer, The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, Or to take arms against a sea of troubles, And by opposing, end them.

This will display in public chat, according to the accent you selected:

To be or not ter be, right, that is the bloomin' question. Wether it's nobler in the chuffin' mind ter suffer, The slings and arrows o' outrageous fortune, Or ter 'ave arms against a sea o' troubles, And by opposin', end them.

Hey! I love this translator, but can you get it to work in no-scripted areas? I spend most of my time helping newbies in Infohubs. That's where this thing would come in handy.

There seems to be a way to get scripts to run in noscript areas -- MystiTool and the Bloodlines Vampire hud both do.

v0.28 takes controls, so it should work in no-script land (but you need to put it on before going there). - Lear Cale

Great translator! I've been using this one for a while now and it works perfect. Are there any updates regarding this product yet?
