    In the old WGT format, you could cut and paste in the chat, will that feature ever be brought back? It was very helpful when chatting to non-English speaking players.

    The only thing I can suggest to translate foreign chat quickly is to use your mobile device. Fire up the Google Translate app, choose auto detect for the from language and your native tongue for the to language.

    Poke the camera icon on the translate screen and point your device at the text to be translated, which should then appear on your screen in your chosen translated language.

    Thank you Scott for the reply, however I rarely if ever use my mobile for WGT, only by desktop.

    Sorry Lincswhite, I wasn't suggesting playing the game on your phone.

    You can use the Google translate app on your phone to translate text in a foreign language through your phone's camera.

    Play the game on your desktop, use your phone to translate the foreign text on your desktop screen.

    Lincswhite:

    Linc, have you tried the keyboard shortcuts CTRL+X (cut), CTRL+C (copy), and CTRL+V (paste) with the in-game chat?
