Welcome to the Home of Lost In Translation Bot

Lost In Translation Bot, litbot for short, is a Twitch bot that translates chat messages to the broadcasters choice of lanaguge.

Litbot's origins came from modding a channel that was being hit by trolls posting in foreign languages. However, as the trolls have moved on, Litbot have been found to be a useful accessibility feature.

Litbot currently operates only in English (for now), but can translate to any supported lanaguge found here (link to something). If you are interested in helping to translate litbot commands to other language please contact us using the Contact page (link to something)

How does it work?

Litbot connects to the channel chatroom ...

By default, Litbot ignores messages from the broadcasters, mods, and vips, however you can add a user back to always be translated (see mod commands)

Behind the scenes Litbot uses Google Translate API

Right now, Litbot is free, however with more users the cost may go up. If you feel so inclined, you can donate (link to something)
