GetTranslatorForPlayerAsync yields forever in Studio

  • Describe the bug. Describe what is happening when the bug occurs. Describe what you would normally expect to occur.

GetTranslatorForPlayerAsync seemingly yields forever in Studio (tested non-APS play solo and start server + player). Expected behavior is that it returns a Translator after a short while, or throws an error if the service is down.
In live Roblox servers this works properly.

  • How often does the bug happen (Everytime/sometimes/rarely)? What are the steps that reproduce the bug? Please list them in very high detail. Provide simple example places that exhibit the bug and provide description of what you believe should be the behavior.

All the time. Tested for this game: Tested by loading a local file in Studio and then using SetPlaceId to assign the correct place id (same technique is used to allow reading datastores from Studio, e.g.).

  • Where does the bug happen (www, gametest, etc) Is it level-specific? Is it game specific? Please post a link to the place that exhibits the issue.


  • Would a screenshot or video help describe it to someone? If so, post one.


  • For graphics bugs, it is sometimes helpful to know your system specs, especially graphics card.


  • When did the bug start happening? If we can tie it to a specific release that helps us figure out what we broke.

Probably since the method got released, stumbled upon this today.

  • Anything else that you would want to know about the bug if it were your job to find and fix it.



Having the same issue.
I would like to do some error control and testing but cannot because I am waiting for this function to return.

Can confirm, I still seem to be having the same issue.

I’m seeing this too.

Why is this still an issue? Issues like this are a massive waste of time. Please fix ASAP. Also occurs with GetTranslatorForLocaleAsync.

I’m experiencing this right now, out of nowhere. Causes Robloxian Highschool to load forever without any warning in Studio, but online it loads right away.

I have a module for handling Localization logic and it never gets to the “Got Translator!” print statement.

Having this issue today. Roblox yields for 10 seconds - only happens on Studio.
