wikitranslator on Windows 10. The article is translated into German.

The wikitranslator is a tool that automatically translates common words, phrases and whole sentences in articles. This is especially useful for huge content updates with many page that can be translated much faster.

Aren't automated translations "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. Oh, and it's allowed anyway.


  • Translations of the first sentence in item (set) pages as well as the optional sentences for community and promotional items.
    • Also includes set contents, update history, levels, categories and flags as well as thumbnail descriptions.
  • Translation of headings
  • Automatic addition of {{DISPLAYTITLE}}
  • These features are available if the option 'Use TF Wiki connection to improve translations' is selected:
    • Translation of wikilinks and Wikipedia links
    • Localization of sounds in quotations
    • Translation of {{Main}} and {{See also}} templates
