CA Assistants on the new non-english chat

Recommended Posts

Hello, how will CA Assistants work on the new non-english chat? Will there be any?

If so, is there any way to apply to it?

I wonder if there is any CA/CM/GM who speaks Polish. ūüėȬ†

Presumably you apply in the normal way, via the thread in GM halls?  And there seem to be more Polish staff than any other non-English, last I saw.

Polish? Do we have any Polish staff? Who? ūüėȬ†Last time I heard Non-English CA_HELP was took over by our Russian folks. It would be worth to change the idea a bit - you could have a list of preferred languages in your profile and people could be sorted out in chats according to them, so I could e.g. have Polish and English CA_HELP¬†open (would be fun to pick Latin too :D). It is very hard to find anything in a sea of languages you do not understand.¬†

Not for me to share people's nationality, but there are a few.

I saw we have a spanish community so we should at least have that!

I notice the MMO Ryzom is now using something called DeepL  which apparently can recognize when someone is typing in a foreign language and automatically translates it into English.  Might not be a perfect solution (look at cellphone "autocorrect" bloopers for how this can be as frustrating as it is helpful)  but it also might be worth considering only for the "NonEnglish" help channel, or for an "AUTO-TRANSLATE" tab

Or we can hire non-english speakers from the community. There is plenty of us here who would be willing to assist.
