Great addition. Only, if you have a popular title, chances are you won’t change the language of it in other countries just like these massive MMOs out there today.
Haven’t been this excited for a new Roblox feature in a long time!
Yep they did!
You can just not edit the game title?
Wow I didn’t notice that. I’m a silly goose
yep, we recognize there’s a lot more to localizing your game than the title and description but we wanted to start here for search and discoverability. We’ll be adding support for localized icons and thumbnails, hopefully in the next year, all within the same localization portal.
Hey I’ve found an issue with this.
The game’s title is displaying in German despite me not having German as my computer’s language, (however the game title has been localized to German), this was fixed after a refresh.
Same. My game title was translated to Portuguese randomly. Happened once on mobile when browsing the games page.
To help me understand the issue more fully can you answer these questions:
- Did you add a translation in Portuguese?
- Did the issue go away on refresh?
- Did you set your source language?
- any other details?
More details will help us track down what and why this is happening.
- Source language is English
- Name goes back to normal after a page refresh
- Happens on the games page and home page.
- I have translated the game title to Spanish, Portuguese, French and German
- Has happened at least 10 more times since my last post. The title changes randomly to one of the 4 languages, not just Portuguese.
Also the same issue appears on mobile occasionally.
Thanks for the quick response. Someone is looking into it; we suspect its a caching issue. I’ll follow back when we know more
Yep, caching issue as suspected. Already working on fixing it asap
Issue is fixed! Let us know if you encounter any other bugs.
Heyo @kalypso3, just a question about this new feature. Does the “Translators” section work yet? If so, how do they access it? If not, what’s the estimate for when this becomes functional?
I’m pretty sure that feature works, they can just click the “…” beside your game and access it at any time I think.
Heyhey so you’ve found a not-so-subtle secret feature that we enabled last week but haven’t announced yet. More info here: New Cloud Localization Tools roll-out plan
