Lightbulb Foreign language translation

Hi all! I am wondering if someone can help me with a situation. I have invited a player to join our guild and he has accepted, but apparently he doesn't speak English very well. I see that he is actively playing, because I can see his level increasing almost daily. I have sent him a couple messages in English with no response.

I tried to go to Google translate to type out a message in hope that I could translate it to Greek (I know it would be a rough translation, but it would be a start...) then copy/paste the translation into an in-game message. I figured this would at least be a semi-adequate solution. Here's the trouble - it appears that I cannot paste the Greek translation into an in-game message (I think it is something to do with the Greek characters?).

So - are there any ethnic-minded gamers out there who have any ideas for how I could break down this communication between myself and my new Greek friend? No problem if it doesn't work out...I just figured I would ask if anyone else has overcome a similar problem? I know there's probably an easy answer, I'm just having trouble coming up with it.

Thanks all!

Good idea! I gave it a try, and I was able to get into the Greek language mode, but I still can't paste into the in-game message window (I am actually having trouble pasting messages even in English). I have tried Ctrl+V and right clicking and choosing "Paste" but neither method works. Maybe it is a limitation of Adobe Flash or something? Weird.

To paste in game use shift+insert.

If you ever want to copy it is control +insert.

Wow - that ALMOST worked! I feel like I was so close. I was able to get into the greek version and compose the message, using shift+insert to paste in from GT, but when I hit send, I got an error message in greek that I could not copy/paste.

I tried entering his username in with greek and english, but neither would work. In trying to take an educated guess at what the error might be, I also cut the message down to a couple sentences.

Does S&F error on messages for improper grammar? Maybe that's it.

Oh well. I'll keep trying to send him simple messages in English. Thanks for the help, Bobo! You bagginses are a useful bunch to have around!

I remember sitting for a guild member who played on one of the Greek servers which I sat for him there as well and they were using from my understanding a Latinized Greek. Using our alphabet in there language if u can find a translator site that can do that you should be ok and if you do find one let me know as it can come in handy.
