I've been using the chrome google translate extension for a few weeks now to translate foreign language posts in my feed. It has done an amazing job virtually every post seems to translate and the translation seems well enough to communicate and get the original intent.

How is this not a built-in mastodon feature!


@xyfdi Doesnt need to be google translate. Also I'd be more than happy to pay for that service.

@freemo Yeah, the option to have it translated for a small fee seems reasonable.

Now I am starting to think how this can be implemented in Mastodon... πŸ˜• ( I should be studying! ;-) )

@xyfdi Wouldnt be too hard to implement. In fact can probably be done entierly on the front end.

@freemo I am a scrub when it comes to anything related to the front end, but I believe you (and from what I know it sounds plausible too!)
