This uses both the Google translator API (Free, kind of) and the Cloud translation API (Paid).

You do not need to configure anything to use the free option.

For the paid option, follow these steps.

  1. 1. Create a new project in Google Cloud Platform
  2. 2. Add your payment methods in the billing section
  3. 3. In "APIs & Services > Library", enable "Cloud Translation API"
  4. 4. In "APIs & Services > Credentials", create an API key via "create credentials"
  5. 5. This is your API key. Copy it and keep it secret as this is linked to your payment account.
  6. 6. Restrict your API key. Click on restrict key on API restrictions and only allow "Cloud Translation API".
  7. 7. Copy the key to the "API key" section in the mod and save



Get forge. Put the .jar to your mods folder of your Minecraft instance.

To get started. Press [Y] in the game. (Key bind can be changed in options > controls > multiplayer > Translator menu)

Check the forum page for more information (Screenshots, development status, blah blah blah).


 Please check the forum link for the FAQs. Curseforge's editor sucks so bad that I can't copy and paste.

Development status: (If you want to know what takes so long for updates and please stop asking when will it update)


Due to my busy work schedule, upcoming updates will only be bug fixes. Sorry guys, I don't have time to add any new features but they will be in the backlog.
