Ryzom tests multi-language chat translator and whips up a new map

The oddly flavored alien fantasy MMORPG Ryzom has been running a marathon for a good long while now, and so far its crazy legs haven’t run out of steam. In fact, the team sent out a notice to make sure we knew that there’s some interesting stuff coming for this title.

Ryzom is still alive and has a lot of projects in mind,” the team said on Twitter. “We are currently testing the ingame integration of DeepL translator, creating a new playing map, and preparing [the] next season!” The translator in question is a chat function that allows people to type in their own language and have it automatically translated into the native language of other players’ clients. Neat!

August is a busy month in terms of in-game events for Ryzom. The Fairhaven Market is coming on August 24th and 25th, and throughout all of August, premium accounts are enjoying a gift package of 5,000 choice token, a “Water Bomb Specialist” title, and a fully charged water bomb to toss at other players.

I love this kind of improvements / innovations. It could be a really useful tool for many MMOs.
Reminds me of a rudimentary translation tool that exists in Final Fantasy XI (can’t tell you how much I love this elderly MMO, as it’s done so many things right so many years ago), where you can communicate in chat using a list of preselected words and sentences that will automatically translate in the language of the other players’ chat, whatever their native language. I don’t remember seeing a similar tool in other MMOs…

The same tool is in FFXIV (no surprise, coming from the same company that produced FFXI) and has a growing list of auto-translatable phrases and words.

It’s somewhere north of 2,000 options at this point, covering everything from simple phrases like “Do you speak ____?” to simple greetings to a variety of game questions like “Can you meld materia for me?” or “Do you want me to meld materia for it?” along with just about every term specific to the game…all split into one of 41 categories, and accessed by hitting tab with the chat window open.
