I really enjoy seeing people from other countries wander through Tehplace. Lately, several people from China happened through.
Now, I like Chinese. My daughter is in a Chinese school. I'm just not good at it. I give my poor Chinese a go, and my townies give their poor English a go, and it is all good fun.
My only problem is that I rely heavily on a translator when I see characters I don't know. And since my Chinese keyboard is Pinyin, I don't really know how to get their chats into a translator. I just don't know what they sound like to begin typing.
All this is preamble to my request: copy from chat. Communication would be simply so much better if I could copy the characters to paste in a translator. This is especially useful in the Steam/Facebook/Kong clients, where I tend to be multitasking.
Can we make it so?
