    Yes this is true & though a few different things have been trialled, they just didn't hit on point. So we've been back to the drawing board & will hopefully find more time, to dedicate some work in this area & keep up with new releases & changes to technology as we go. It would benefit so many 🌺🌻

    I was fortunate enough to receive some training from a Community Internationaler with the translator, on arrival here. It took a little minute to become familiar with & find one that suited me but I would really like to free up a portion of time, to really research the Accessibility issues in the linguistic area & available technology, along with any new innovative products being worked on for the public market!

    Seeing some screenshots from local Jellies, of the way things look, In Game for them, in their different languages is totally awesome & I love it!🥰

    @Lady_Sarina also thank you for sharing your last paragraph with myself and the rest of the community. I completely understand what you are saying. Your a very sweet person. ☺️

    Is this not a translator?

    I'm on my computer so maybe it's not available on mobile.

    Elsa I want to first applaud you with what you said about making light of the darkness 👏 guys I know this is a terrible thing that is happening I to love the pm option and have had some great friendships build here in the community and instead of blowing up when I saw that the pm is going away my first thought was I have to find a way to keep up with my closest friends on here so I exchanged emails for now with some of the ones I do not want to lose contact with I'm sure as we speak there is something new in the makings to help not only us players but the CM'S and GM'S. Because first and foremost the CM'S and GM'S are human to and seek friendship and have build friendships here in the community with players and they don't want to lose those friendships either. So they ade brainstorming on something nea to offer to everyone so that we all can keep up with and talk to our friends. So can they. Like Elsa said there is all kind of things out there that can be great ideas we just need to offer our suggestions and act like a community together. Community says it all meaning one so we act like one and there will be a great idea come out of this and then we will all be happy again and have something in place of the PM's. Elsa I have a great idea for the Art Nook i think maybe we should offer creative writing classes there and the animation classes since you are so skilled in these I think you should be over this. I'll keep my fingers crossed that they may make something in the Art Nook and have you over it. Creative writing is something a lot of us would like to do but just don't even know how to begin. There is even sketching, learning out to sketch something on paper, portraits, so much to the art world that could be introduced in the Art Nook. So instead of blowing up make light of this and have faith things will be ok 😊

    I haven't seen that on my tablet or Android. I may be wrong, but I can only assume this is what King has used to translate the same elements of the games into the different languages rather than its being a translation programme.

    What I am saying is that, from my own experience as a translator, it is the accuracy of translations made using translation programmes which is questionable. If you make one spelling mistake when inputting the text for translation, the result can be nonsensical.

    This is a sad decision. I enjoyed PM to talk to a few people on a personal level. I hope we will be able to still find them easily

    We will still see them in the community being active also if there is someone you want to stay in contact with and talk to just send them a pm while you can and ask for emails for now we all can chat like that

    Then it must only be for computers. Maybe that needs to be another suggestion. I totally get what you are saying about spelling errors. I dislike typing on my mobile because Apple thinks they can tell me what I should write.

    Hi I agree with you. I've made friends here too. I used to message the help line but, too got cancelled 😪😡. I wouldn't be surprised if they stop all communication all together. Bad bad decisions.

    I am still upset over the decision, personally, to remove what I see as a vital part of the community functionality (you don't want to discuss private things in the middle of a crowded room, even if all in the room are neighbors, for example -- you discuss them off to the side with a single friend or two) without having a replacement ready to go. That's like telling your customers that a popular menu item is no longer available but you'll get around to making something similar sometime in the future. Not if you're smart, anyway. Nebulous promises without details of something to replace it in the unknown future rarely net you anything but your customers going elsewhere to find what they want. Especially when the reason given for the removal of something is, at best, a transparent cover for some other motivation.

    Pushing people toward facebook is fine for some that are willing to use it. I, for one, refuse. I will never sign up for a FB account nor install their software on any device that I own. I consider the company behind it to be (in the spirit of keeping things kind) less-than-trustworthy and horribly biased.
