Channel Translation

If you need help at any point join our Discord Server and someone will help you.

Automatically translates any new messages in the current channel and forwards them to the target channel. Admins/mods can set forwarding to the same channel(not recommended) or other channels(recommended).

Please note that when you setup an auto command the target channel will not send back to main channel unless you tell it to


!tr channel from [lang] to [lang] for #[dest]

!tr auto to [lang] for #[same channel dest]

!tr channel from [lang] to [lang] for #[dest] filter @[role]


  • for [dest] The target channel you want the translation of the from [lang] to go to.

  • to [lang] (optional) The language to translate to, defaults to server default language if none provided.

  • from [lang] The language to translate from.

  • filter [role] can be used to restriction translation to a specific role.

  • NOTE : Auto is for a single ( same channel ) translations, as photos, and Gifs, will not be duplicated or sent.

Stopping Translations

To stop an automatic translation task, simply go the origin channel of the task and use the stop command:

!tr stop

!tr stop task [id!tr stop for [me]

!tr for [@user]

!tr stop for [#channel]

!tr stop for [all]

!tr stop for [server]


  • [id], ID number for the task you want to stop, run !tr tasks to get id.

  • for [me] - Stops translations via DM to yourself.

  • for [@user] - Stops the task for user.

  • for [channel] - Stops the task from the channel posted to the channel destination.

  • for [all] - Stops all translations in the channel its posted in.

  • for [server] - Stops all translations being done in your server.


Stop all automatic translations

!tr stop for #target-channel

Help command for stop: !translate help stop


Help command for automatic translation: !translate help auto.

  • Values wrapped in brackets [ ] are solely for illustrative purposes to demonstrate the use of the command. Brackets are not in any command.

[lang] values can be language names in English, native language names or ISO 639-1 codes. For example, german de and deutsch will all work the same.

  • Messages by all bots are currently ignored to avoid loops, but we are working on different bot modes to enable bot translation.

    • Any message that begins with !tr or !translate will be determined to be a bot command and thus shall not be allowed to be translated.

Important Note

The bot’s default prefix is !tr (or !translate) - All commands must start with this prefix for the bot to process them. Bot must have proper permissions in all relevant channels for full functionality (read, write, react, mention, attachments, embed).
