What is WikiTranslator?

WikiTranslator is a local Python script that automatically translates common words, phrases and whole sentences in articles. This is especially useful for huge content updates like Scream Fortress 2013 (over 100 cosmetics), which can be translated much faster.

But automated translations are "strictly prohibited"!

This rule does only apply on services like Google Translate which translate a text word for word. This script adds previously translated sentences to the text. Additionally, WindPower allowed this tool.
