The Translator Portal [TUTORIAL]

Hi! I will today teach you how to use the translator portal.


Before starting with the tutorial, I’ll tell you why you should translate games. English isn’t the only language. There’s a lot of languages. Roblox, there’s a lot of players that speak other languages. For example Spanish people. I’m Spanish. For example, Spanish is the second most talked language. And most Spanish people from Latinoamerica doesn’t speak Spanish.

Starting the tutorial

The translator protal is a part from the roblox web where translators can translate games easy.

Accessing The Translator Portal

To access the translator protal, go to the Create page first.

:point_up:You need to be on pc or turn desktop mode on the iPad/tablet/phone.

After clicking create, click on the blue button that says “Translator Portal”.

Now you’re in the translator portal. You’ll see many games down, I didn’t include it on the picture. Don’t worry. That games are games that people made that have public translations on (it’s a bad thing) and are in a group you also are. Ignore that games. On the search bar you need to search for the game you are hired to translate.
For example, I searched one of the games I translated on the past.

The owner needs to add you as a translator on the game settings.

How to use the Translator Portal

It’s really easy to use it.

You can filter the strings. I recommend doing this. Select untranslated. Then, on the “Default” button next to the “Filter” Button, select Alphabetical. Now, you’re able to translate strings, it’s really easy! The owner then can enable the translations and they will show up on the game for the players who have that language selected.


If you’re willing to translate, follow this steps.
1. Always use grammar with the person you’re working on.
2. Don’t translate strings that doesn’t make sense or parts of scripts that are inside the strings. Keep them as they are. Also, if you see usernames, don’t change them. They’re from the leaderboard and bugged into here. **You’ll normally see “{number1}” inside phrases. For example I eat {number1} hot dogs. Translate it but keep the number thing:
:es: | Yo como {number1} perritos calientes.

The end

That’s all! I hope you enjoyed a lot this post!
