    True, true. The last time i played was giving my stuff and selling some stuff to growtopians and our convo was like:

    Me: Hi, buy my diamond wings for 2 worldlocks
    Them: Apa?
    Me: Sorry i dont speak indo, can you speak english?
    Them: *indo words that i definetely dont understand*
    Me: *leaves the world and visits another one*
    Inner me: The heck. Indos again?!


    No offense but indonesians has invaded growtopia and its kinda sad. I can rarely see people from other countries because almost all of the population is indonesians.

        I AGREE but there will be a problem because if the translation is inaccurate then it may cause unnecessary drama

          I’m not even trying to discriminate but talking in a language I don’t understand all the time is disrespectful, sure you may be horrible at English and it’s embarrassing but I was the same, if not worst when I first started playing.
          At least if you’re trying to trade in a public world try and speak in English so that people around you don’t feel bad.

          Most online games have a rule of not speaking another language in chats, so something like that should be implemented to maybe the broadcasting system so that it isn’t filled with other languages.

            yeah but it will be better if we use google translate files or help from FORUMERS,it will increase accuracy,but this thing is hard and GT programmers just focus on hacks and stuff,so this thing will not exist,unless it become reality

              won't say it's disrespectful to be honest, i'm not indonesian but i feel that in a game with more than 60% of the players being indonesian, it won't be too unreasonable to assume that the guy you're speaking to is indonesian, and therefore speak the language that you are both more fluent in.

              i used to think that since this is a game made in english, we should all speak english. i still stand by this notion even after feeling that it's a lost cause, but provided that most players are children, and some of these children have limited fluency in english, the only thing we can do is to tolerate it and possibly learn a few common words in the process to understand what they are saying.

                😞✊ sadly true, i just hope that maybe indos can try and learn more english so they can communicate easier

                  The translator could be useful even though it may have alot of problems occuring, but we could give it a try!

                  The proper Indonesian language may be easy to be translated, but most Indos used the "shorter way" to chat with each other. That makes a single proper word into many various different kinds of other words.

                  Also: Making it to be a toggleable option in the menu is a good thing too. (?)
                  Quitted growtopia and forums, but I'm still active on Forumers United discord server.

                    Indonesian really invade this game few years ago..
                    And i am also the one that join the invasion
                    Almost everyone in my grade play growtopia

                    But only small fraction of them can type and read english
                    I might be selfish, but I speak what in my mind

                      Language

                      What I learned few years ago is to ask players how to say some basic stuffs. We need to adjust because knowledge can be kept forever.

                      Indonesian basics:
                      Beli - Buy (ex. Beli lava - Buy lava)
                      Apa - What
                      Saya - Me/I
                      Menjual - Sell
                      Mau - Want

                      For instance, (ex. Saya beli horse - I buy horse)
