Backstage: Translating the Tooniverse

Posted by The Toontown Team on September 13, 2014 at 3:00 PM


Witam, guten tag, and bonjour! -- Those are all ways to say "Hi!" in other languages, though I prefer the first one myself. I'm Agata, one of the long-time team members over here at Toontown Rewritten. You may not have heard of me before -- and that's because what I'm here to talk about today is a brand new feature making it's debut for the first time on Toontown!

It's time to tell you the exciting tale of...



Blast to the Past

A couple of years ago, Toontown.com wasn't the only place to play Toontown -- and it wasn't through Rewritten, either. Toontown had servers placed all around the world in plenty of different languages: French, German, Japanese, Spanish, and Portuguese! The UK had their own, too, despite being in the same language. The fanbase wasn't small, and there were plenty of Toons just like you who played the game with their friends across the world. You may even have played on one of those servers before (Shout-out to our many Portuguese fans!), but sadly they were closed long before Toontown.com was.

As great as they were, there was a clear problem: each of those languages had its own separate server, and thus different players. You know that us Toons love to stay united, but we couldn't do it when everyone was playing on a different server around the world!

One for All, and All on One!

We were all incredibly sad to see the other servers shuttered, just as much as we were when Toontown.com closed its doors. While Toontown Rewritten too is primarily English, we've been receiving fan letters, emails, and visits from players all around the world who have been keeping up with our project. From the huge outreach, we decided to work on something to change the Tooniverse forever and truly unite all of us Toons...

Toontown Rewritten will be internationally available for everyone, starting with French, German, and Polish languages. These won't be separate servers, however: we're taking it to the next level. We will be releasing Toontown to play in multiple languages without you losing the ability to hang out with your multilingual pals - it's as easy as clicking a button!

Uniting the World

When you think of a translation, you may just be thinking of the Shop names, ToonTask dialogue, and Cog attacks. Those are all awesome to be able to read in your own language, but it really isn't enough. Toontown is all about teamwork, and what good is teamwork when none of your pals can understand what you're saying? Luckily, they won't have to.

Through the SpeedChat system, Toons from far and wide will be able to communicate with each other without even having to know a separate language! For example, let's say you and three of your best pals have just met up in Toontown Central. When you click the green SpeedChat button, you scroll down to find "Hello!" and click it. You see it as "Hello!", but for your French friend sees it as "Bonjour!", your German friend sees "Hallo!" and for your Polish friend as "Czesc!" Pretty neat, huh?

Similarly, if they choose a SpeedChat phrase in their own language, it will show in English for you. This means that you can direct your team's strategy with SpeedChat and be understood by everyone, regardless of language. It's a universal language, and you don't even have to take the time to learn it!

On the Lookout

Just as there are 3 languages to be released, there are 3 translators working on them. There is Nicolas, who maintains the French version -- you may know him as that lovable horse named Goshi! There is also Romeo who maintains the German version, and myself who helps out with the Polish version. Hello!

While we're only looking to support these three languages for the time being, we certainly aren't going to leave any others out! We're hoping to support as many languages as there is demand for, and we'd love to take you onto the team to help us do it. We're going to hold off on starting any new languages for now, but if you are up for translating Toontown into your own language, feel free to shoot us an email and show us what you can do!



When I first began translating, it was really overwhelming. Did you know that Toontown has over 10,000 strings of text that needed to be translated? (And it doesn't help that the developers keep adding more!) Along the way, however, I realized just how fun translating is! Making up megaphone jokes, figuring out the rhymes for Sticky Lou, referencing Polish business slang in Cogs’ attacks and staring at the screen trying to fit lengthy Polish words where shorter English sentences once were - it all gave an immense amount of fun.

There were, of course, a few challenges on the way. English and Polish quite obviously differ, and Toontown was made directly for English. Although both are Indo-European languages, English is "Germanic" while Polish is "Slavic". I’m not going to go into the boring, linguistic details, but take my word for it: it’s a pretty complicated language! The developers have had to engineer new ways to display the text while still being able to support all languages, and it has proven to be quite tricky at times. But hey, don’t worry: it’s nothing Toontown can’t handle and soon enough you’ll be able to play it in another language for yourself, too!

If you have suggestions on how we can better support Toons from around the world, let us know! We're always looking for ways to help Toontown become even more united.

Toontown International is still in the works, but it will be available to everyone soon through your local Shticker Book. Do widzenia, auf wiedersehen, and adieu -- I'll see you all at ToonFest!

This is an impressive project! Good luck!

Master Z.Z. said on September 13, 2014 at 3:08 PM
Wait.... What about SpeedChat+? is that going to be translated too?

Mr. Toon said on September 13, 2014 at 3:10 PM
Many languages, ( Still waiting for CEO nametag ) I guess I'll meet people all over the world at Toonfest. 6 more days to go all!

Lily said on September 13, 2014 at 3:15 PM
That is incredibly awesome!!

Master Bingo said on September 13, 2014 at 3:21 PM
That's nice, good luck with the translations! (I'm French btw and I used to play on TTO France, but I think I'll keep playing in english though on TTR!)

Meredith said on September 13, 2014 at 3:25 PM
this is awesome, i can't wait to play in german(i'm taking german this year, and ill tell my mom im "studying"

Mystical magic said on September 13, 2014 at 3:32 PM
As I read the above, I can only wonder how proud your parents and family must be of you. The TEAM has gone above and beyond to make other people, people you don't even know, HAPPY. I would be extremely happy to call you my son or daughter. As a whole, you guys are awesome. No, you are internationally AWESOME!

Max said on September 13, 2014 at 3:35 PM
This is amazing!

Tubby Uber said on September 13, 2014 at 3:36 PM
This is amazing TTR! Thanks fpr making this game HAPPEN. Toontown was my all time favorite PC game.

Ominous said on September 13, 2014 at 4:12 PM
I've got to admit, I didn't see that up your sleeves. I have a friend or few from Asia. Thanks a bunch, arigato gozaimasu!

Fawn said on September 13, 2014 at 4:27 PM
That's is awesome. I can't imagine how difficult that must have been. One of my friends in the game speaks french and now I can communicate with them easily. Thanks for that it is a great idea. One things though, i really want to have a doodle. Can you open the Pet Shop soon?

Hector Megamarble said on September 13, 2014 at 4:28 PM
I can speak Spanish. I could help translate if possible

Cool Alvin said on September 13, 2014 at 4:49 PM
Wow, incredible work!

Roboflipper said on September 13, 2014 at 4:52 PM
This is insane! I know someone in French and hes my friend and I'm excited for him to play with this game with me!

Twizzz said on September 13, 2014 at 4:59 PM
Diese ist gut! I liebe die neue aktualisieren! ~ This is good! I love the new update!

Colorful Crayons said on September 13, 2014 at 5:00 PM
Awesome! This may be helpful to me during my spanish lessons, because i will need to have exposure to the spanish language, so i could just change to spanish and keep my spanish getting better.

Cool Pumpkincorn said on September 13, 2014 at 5:05 PM
You guys are amazing!

Mango Monkey said on September 13, 2014 at 5:15 PM
Would you guys be able to do Icelandic? It would be helpful to me as I want to learn the language.

Mister Fluffy Dynoteeth said on September 13, 2014 at 5:20 PM
Wow! You guys are really dedicated to this! I'm impressed at the amount of work you guys put into this! It would be nice if you guys could add support for Spanish, as well. I know some people whose native tongue is Spanish and I'm more than certain they'd enjoy the game better if everything was in their language. Good luck with translating everything! See you international folks over at ToonFest! :)

SqueakyCheese said on September 13, 2014 at 5:21 PM
Well done! But i agree with Mr. Toon. speedchat+ is my main way of communication! although it would take a VERY VERY long time to translate that all into french...

Joseph/Princess Helen said on September 13, 2014 at 5:27 PM
It will be awesome to talk to people around the world! :)

Dippy Wacky Wildzapper said on September 13, 2014 at 5:29 PM
Good luck with the translating. Looking forward to Toonfest! :)

Princess Lily said on September 13, 2014 at 5:31 PM
Oh my gosh! This'll be so awesome!!! I know a bit of Filipino, but idk if you guys'll need a version of TTR in the Philippines XD Still, the project is amazing! Keep up the great work!!

Galactic said on September 13, 2014 at 5:37 PM
OMG! in the uniting the world photo, from Goshi's point of view, you can see the party area :D

Boss said on September 13, 2014 at 5:39 PM
c'est si épique je ne peux pas attendre pour cela sortir this is so epic i cant wait for this to come out

daisy said on September 13, 2014 at 6:28 PM
you guys are amazing!! you are going above and beyond to make the game better as fast as you can!!

Flame said on September 13, 2014 at 6:43 PM
It's great that every Toon, even in the far reaches of the Tooniverse, will be able to play together, regardless of language.

Pearl said on September 13, 2014 at 6:53 PM
heard about this once when the older toontown was still online, glad you're not just copying but rethinking the toon universe!

Hyung said on September 13, 2014 at 6:59 PM
Yay! Obrigado (thank you) TTR <3

Blue Cat said on September 13, 2014 at 7:01 PM
This so awesome! I hope they translate the portuguese soon so i dont need keep opening the translator XD!

Annie Paws said on September 13, 2014 at 7:04 PM
You guys should also do spanish! I know some toons that played toontown that are spanish, they should enjoy the game in spanish ( I'm spanish btw )

Mister Tubby Sniffletoon said on September 13, 2014 at 7:11 PM
Hello, I am Brazilian, and long toontown game, since he had a version in Portuguese. I always enjoyed playing and when toontown reopened, loved it! But now with this news translation into several languages??, had wanted a version in Portuguese for the translation! Still love the game, I wanted to congratulate the whole team for having managed to do what they did! Thank you so much !!

Master Knuckles Robogadget said on September 13, 2014 at 7:52 PM
I have a cool suggestion, Maybe new cogs and a new boss would be cool! Also maybe more items and activities for parties that might be released sometime. Good luck if you wanna do this!

Zach said on September 13, 2014 at 7:56 PM
Thats so cool! I like how it's translated! So sometimes you dont even know if your talking to someone japanese!

Cool Felix Bizzenbumper said on September 13, 2014 at 7:58 PM
TTR Team, your the best of all the best!

Flower said on September 13, 2014 at 8:07 PM
This is seriously incredible!! I love this idea so much. It has so much potential to bring everyone together.

Oops said on September 13, 2014 at 8:29 PM
You guys should translate the game to Spanish next.

Master C said on September 13, 2014 at 8:57 PM
Yeoww! That's really nice! You guys really brought it all back, eh?

Aria said on September 13, 2014 at 9:22 PM
This is great! Now people from all around the world can interact with each other on one great game! Good Job TTR team! :)

Colliefornia Girl said on September 13, 2014 at 9:28 PM
I have to say...this is incredible! I do have friends who are European Portuguese, and this will make communicating so much easier. I congratulate the entire TTR team for taking this game and improving it far above and beyond what Disney ever did. The beauty of this is you did this out of love for the game, and trying to truly unite everyone into one cohesive TTR fan base. Kudos to all TTR team members for bringing back our beloved game, and making it even more enjoyable. Can't wait for Toonfest, and for new content. Keep up the great work. Thumbs up for your project!

Garsche said on September 13, 2014 at 9:40 PM
Not a bad idea at all, but typing is used by many toons to replace SpeedChat, as some people can type faster than going through the dropdown menu. It should highly be noted that this may cause problems if completed poorly. It'd be nice to see a fully functional translator through Toontown though.

Super Wilbur Biggensticks said on September 13, 2014 at 9:58 PM
Wow! I had the same idea back when Disney's Toontown was still open! This is gonna be great for all of us toons to be able to talk to each other without saying uh? What did you just say? And so on. Good luck TTR and I'll see y'all at Toon Fest!

Prof. Felix Macmarble said on September 13, 2014 at 11:18 PM
Danke for being awesome, Goshi, Joey and the rest of the translators!

Blaise said on September 13, 2014 at 11:50 PM
I think this is an amazing project and something that will hopefully make TTR better than TTO ever was. Toontown was meant to be about community and by splitting the community up TTO never was united. But please can you put in Pig Latin? :P

Destroyer said on September 14, 2014 at 12:21 AM
Wow! This is seriously awesome that you're taking consideration of other people who don't speak English! Nice job, guys!

Gothic said on September 14, 2014 at 1:47 AM
Im so excited for this!! Nice to meet you Agata :)

super raven said on September 14, 2014 at 3:32 AM
Wow! I know a little bit of Spanish if you need anything. Chow!

jacklost yedmore said on September 14, 2014 at 5:09 AM
I hope there will be a norwegian translation to, im norwegian and wold like to use my own language

Alex Mc Toony said on September 14, 2014 at 5:24 AM
This is really impressing/exciting news! I could in fact help with the translating project, for I have been around the world for quite along time. In fact as I am typing this, I am almost 800 miles away from you all!

cool lily said on September 14, 2014 at 5:56 AM
i hope you guys release a Japanese version :)!

Peppermint said on September 14, 2014 at 6:15 AM
This is an awesome update! It sounds very tricky to translate, but it's awesome that we get to play with toons around the world! Thanks for this amazing update, and I'm excited when it comes out.

Captain Clyde said on September 14, 2014 at 7:01 AM
YOU GUYS ROCK! This is incredible, now people all over the planet will be playing Toontown Rewritten! Get ready for a million more followers! Toons of the world, UNITE!

slate red duck said on September 14, 2014 at 7:26 AM
Oh my god, I can't belive, I am from Brazil, I always wanted Toontown back to portuguese, thank you so much, you did a GREAT job TTR team. :)

Chocolate Churro said on September 14, 2014 at 7:33 AM
This sounds awesome! Keep up the hard work!

Mr.Cat said on September 14, 2014 at 7:53 AM
It is just AMAZING what the ttr crew has accomplished. Nice job!

Sire Zooblenerd said on September 14, 2014 at 8:27 AM
Wow! Its great to know that my friends in other country's Will be able to play without having trouble communicating! Thanks, TTR!

Little Miss Laurel said on September 14, 2014 at 8:42 AM
Welcome Back Team, I"m so very excited to see the Toon's all over the world reunite, your team has done an Awesome and I look forward to Opening Day. Many men and women around the world that have served in the military are combat veterans that suffer from (PTSD) Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Playing Toontown is a great outlet for relieving Stress, Comradeship (Friends), Team Work to complete the goal in helping the town defeat the cogs. Earning jelly beans, buying gifts, Fishing, the music is all calming and fun. Picking characters, names, clothes, and working as teams is fun and very calming and veterans spend hours in this space. I thank each and everyone of you for this Calming Space, see you there. Let's get the Game On!

DippyDizzyboom said on September 14, 2014 at 8:56 AM
This is a fantastic idea! Please add an option that says "I don't speak English" that way us English-speakers can understand why a toon is only using Speedchat and we can also use speedchat to accommodate that non-English speaking toon! :)

Final Fortnight said on September 14, 2014 at 9:05 AM
That is truly amazing! Thank you so much! :D

Jake McBurger said on September 14, 2014 at 9:13 AM
Good luck!Hope you have a fun time making it!:D

Miss Violet said on September 14, 2014 at 9:22 AM
Hello everyone, If I understand you want to incorporate an automatic translation ... at least for the rapid chat ... it would be a good idea :D Good luck for the future :)

Skippy Superpop said on September 14, 2014 at 9:29 AM
FINALLY! I've had this idea for AGES :) I'm so happy it's been incorporated into TTR. Is there going to be some way that we can identify toons from different places? Because If we just start talking in SpeedChat+, which Im pretty sure doesn't translate... Well you get the picture lol.

Minny Mousekewitz said on September 14, 2014 at 9:36 AM
Wow! A huge project... I can't wait!

niki! said on September 14, 2014 at 9:56 AM
COOL!!! i hope you will translate toontown to hebrow, that will be great!!

Alex Wave said on September 14, 2014 at 10:25 AM
This is very nice to everyone in the international community. ^_^

Sailor Bear said on September 14, 2014 at 10:32 AM
Nice! Do you guys think you will be translating Regular Chat bubbles as well? Now that would be a level beyond a level!

Peaches said on September 14, 2014 at 10:36 AM
Wow this sounds incredible and awesome and the same time :D One question, do you think you could ever do Romanian? You've given us one of our most favorite childhood games back and we couldn't thank you guys enough, but then you take it even further with this... Just amazing :D

Iceweam said on September 14, 2014 at 10:51 AM
This is so, incredibly amazing and I can't wait to be united with toons across the world! Au revoir!

Hotaru said on September 14, 2014 at 11:03 AM
This sounds like an awesome feature! You guys are great.

Evie said on September 14, 2014 at 12:48 PM
Wow this is just so amazing! I love the whole idea, seems ToonTown is really improving in such a great way! Now everyone understands each other but what about speedchat plus? Are you going to translate our chats?

Prince said on September 14, 2014 at 1:02 PM
Neat, I'm actually learning German this year. (I hope I'm saying this one right...) Ich bin bereit für Toontown Rewritten auf Deutsch!

Flower said on September 14, 2014 at 1:21 PM
I have a friend over in the UK (who I have already pulled into the game once) and know some multi-language people, so it's good to know that this is being put together! Keep up the great work! Glad to know this is built to unite not only people in one nation, but many.

Mr Leaf said on September 14, 2014 at 1:45 PM
That is great news! I can talk to people from Germany and have fun!

Master Tom Twinkleteeth said on September 14, 2014 at 2:41 PM
This is actually something that I've sorta always wanted to see since old Toontown, This is an amazing idea and it will help out our community a lot! Good job guys. :)

A Slate Blue Dog said on September 14, 2014 at 4:20 PM
Aah! So neat! This is a really awesome idea! I love long language lists- I can't wait to see Rewritten's!!! Also, translating is awesome. You are living my dream right now, seriously. Congratulations. xD

Toonicus said on September 14, 2014 at 4:42 PM
This is amazing! I am so happy to see that Toontown Rewritten is reaching out to people who speak more than just English. I used to play the original Spanish Toontown servers with my friends. Many of my friends don't speak English as well as I do, so I'm sure that they would enjoy playing Toontown again. I really miss playing Toontown in Spanish, it was so much fun! I would love to see a Spanish version of Toontown Rewritten. I know it takes a very long time to re-program Toontown Rewritten with other languages, but please add Spanish at some point. :) Also, maybe the TTR staff could also allow other languages for speed chat plus.

Bluestar said on September 14, 2014 at 5:21 PM
Well, if it was that easy, then why didn't we just connect the world before? :D Now it really IS Toons of the World UNITE!

Peanut SourWoof said on September 14, 2014 at 5:57 PM
Please tell me you have Hebrew PLEASE HAVE IT. If you don't this is how you say hi in Hebrew, shaloam

Sheriff Duke Fiddlescooter said on September 14, 2014 at 6:12 PM
1 Server For Many Languages? AMAZING. Good Job TTR!

Little Foot said on September 14, 2014 at 6:35 PM
Dette er virkelig kult! Vennligst oppdater rakett til Macintosh 10.6.8 eller høyere og slipp Linux så min venn hele veien i Canada kan spille , også. Jeg ønsker å spille gratis uten å oppdatere min hele systemet før eller rett på den eksakte spillet utgivelsen ! Jeg har norsk i meg så jeg snakker en del av min arv.(This is really cool! Please update the launcher to Macintosh 10.6.8 or higher and release Linux so my friend all the way in Canada can play, too. I want to play for free without updating my whole system before or right on the exact game release! I have Norwegian in me so I'm speaking a part of my heritage.)

Chaos said on September 14, 2014 at 7:30 PM
This is so cool! i have a suggestion, When we connect with other players with different languages they should have something distinct like something above their head so that we know that their from a different language and to use the speed chat. that would make it easier i think.

Dizzy said on September 14, 2014 at 8:25 PM
I think that is AWESOME!!! Thank you all for your hard work and making it possible for toons around the world able to communicate!!

Sandrare said on September 14, 2014 at 9:32 PM
Olá, agradeço muito ao travalho maravilhoso que estáo fazendo! Sou brasileira e jogo algum tempo na play time, adoro o TTR, pois está cada vez mais incrivel, muito obrigada!

Sandy said on September 14, 2014 at 9:35 PM
Muito obrigado pelo jogo maravilhoso que estão fazendo, sou brasileira e jogo a algum tempo já sempre na play time, agora com a tradução espero que em portugues tambem , muito muito obrigada !!!!

Fireball McMeow said on September 15, 2014 at 3:33 AM
Love this idea.. *-* I'm french and, I actually learned English with TTUS, (I played TTFrance before but... it closed when I was around 7-8 and I don't have much memories of it) My English teacher just hates me now, as she can't teach me anything... :') I took Spanish this year, and, I don't know why, but my brain feels like I have to have the same level in Spanish than the one I have in English and French... Guess I'm gonna try to turn my game in Spanish soon! But still, I can't wait to play the game in itself, whether it's in English, French or Spanish!<3

Noisy said on September 15, 2014 at 6:46 AM
I find it very nice that you're bringing back the translator, then toons from all over the world can play! Good luck on the project! :3

spyro4567 said on September 15, 2014 at 9:25 AM
This is amazing more pepole can play this awesome game!!

The Dark Cat said on September 15, 2014 at 10:48 AM
Yay, Toontown Rewritten will be in french! :)

Cliff Twiddletoon said on September 15, 2014 at 11:49 AM
Maybe, just maybe, eventually you guys can do something to help change SpeedChat+ to different languages! The power of TTR! :D

Shy Guy said on September 15, 2014 at 12:01 PM
I can see the NPC chats and the speedchats getting translated, but what about SC+? It actually wouldn't be too difficult of a project to create your own translator, considering there's a whitelist. That doesn't leave much room for grammatical error upon translation either. Just a thought.

TonToon said on September 15, 2014 at 2:19 PM
I'm looking forward to the launch of the Portuguese version. This helps a lot in communicating with toons from other countries. Unfortunately, the Portuguese are not among the first languages ??to be released, but I have hopes that the Portuguese version will be released. Thank Toontown Rewritten team.

zjjpp said on September 15, 2014 at 2:55 PM
Wow! That's a lot of work there! Keep it up!

Mister Peanut Zillermash said on September 15, 2014 at 3:04 PM
This is awesome! This is one of the best things to come from this project yet.

Rosie said on September 15, 2014 at 3:26 PM
I am really happy with what you have done TTR. I don't know how you did all of this this quickly but thank you. I love the game i have played it alot and love that you don't have to pay for membership. I think that you are doing it much better than disney did and I know that disney is magical and everything but i just think that you pay alot more attention to us players than disney ever did. I wanted to just say that the only things I see wrong is that whenever you come out of a tunnel you can't see yourself running out I just wanted to tell you that. But thanks for all the hard work you have put in. Can't wait for Toonfest bye!

gabriel said on September 15, 2014 at 3:49 PM
keep up the great work!

Bonzo Hucklehopper said on September 15, 2014 at 6:28 PM
Five more days and the brains behind it all are still hard at work! Props TTR staff! Can't wait for release!

Lady Pearl Paddleswirl said on September 15, 2014 at 11:06 PM
This is awesome! I hope that you guys are able to do Chinese translations, since I am learning the language. And maybe Thai so that my friends in Thailand can play too? I absolutely love what you are doing, keep it up! Toons from all over the world, unite!

Punny Bunny said on September 16, 2014 at 3:25 AM
Wow! Impressive! When I read this I was like this is one of the best updates! Good job guys! How about translating the Hebrew language? It would be really neat! I speak a little German, and I know how to say goodbye in French, Au revoir! Bye! Keep up with the good work!

TwoSeconds said on September 16, 2014 at 6:20 AM
Congrats on being the composer. Unlike you, I'm a pop composer. Hope we get to know each other and we can share tips on composing songs together. Also, after i heard your songs, I can totally admit that the new toontown background music is cool! Totally better than the old one.I love the funky pop mix ^^ Keep the fuel going!

Gold Mouse Cool Toon said on September 16, 2014 at 6:32 AM
Neat, now all countries can enjoy Toontown again!

Larry The Blue Dog said on September 16, 2014 at 7:28 AM
I'm a bit ashamed to say that the only phrases I know from another language are from Spanish. "Hola", "adios", "domo arigato, Mr. Roboto", etc. But this is very generous of you guys that you care for players of this beloved, treasured game outside of the States! I'll be sure to try out all the new languages when it is released.

Crazy Tom Weaselpop said on September 16, 2014 at 8:14 AM
I don't have much use to this, but still, many people do so... I want to say good job (and not JUST with this) this is a great recreation of toontown, and it keeps getting better! good job! (yes I know I already said that, I just can't say it more) I hope many people enjoy this feature, even though I don't have much use for it. (Man I must have a bad habit of repeating myself)

Fan tastic. I appreciate the added feature... it is for sure a logical extension of the unity toons strive for. Yeah on several levels.

Wow ttr I can't belive this you guys are going to do are that work into translating words goodness you guys really are the best!

I LOVE the progress you guys are making! I can't wait to play something that made my childhood happy! :)

I'd like to say that this is a really good concept you guys are doing! It'd be great to meet people all around the world without the confusion of talking in languages you don't really understand. @master- probably not at the moment- it'd take a lot more work and effort and I don't really see it being possible in my mind.

Wow, this is truly amazing. I was "pretty" excited about TTR, but after hearing about this translation feature I am extremely excited! I am talking *Mind Blown*. I appreciate what you guys are doing and can't wait to see what else you guys bring to the table.

CrazyEmber said on September 17, 2014 at 8:15 AM
That's really cool! Now me and my pen-pal can play Toontown together! You guys put a lot of work into this and Thank you so much for that! Keep up the good work!

This is great! It would be so much fun to play in another language. Even though I wont understand it. But hey, I could probably study because I have played in English for so long that if I change to another language, I may be able to remember some of the words. I am really excited for the new languages, new graphics, and Toonfest! This game is really starting to shape up.

Awesome! I can't help but feel proud of you guys (despite not even being older) I really love what you guys are doing. Thank you guys so much for doing all of this!

This project is very thrilling indeed, because I have always hated the separation in servers. What impressed me the most is that how an English Toon can speak English while a French Toon receives it as a French! It's mind-boggling and I've been looking for this feature since the beginning of time. So far, I'm pumped!

Doge said on September 17, 2014 at 9:24 PM
Impressive! I like seeing how the TTR team actually cares for others. It just gives me so happy!

Skipper said on September 17, 2014 at 10:00 PM
So nice! I hope you guys will release Japanese version some day!

WOW!

Wow, I can't believe that Toontown Rewritten will be opening so soon! It's amazing how far you guys have come, the fact that you've brought Toontown back to life is impressive and I cannot wait to play. And this Translating idea sounds epic, I just can't wait to create my own toon!

wow this is great feature. if you ever need help with a dutch translation let us know. we already love this game so much. thanks for all the great work everyone did

Duke said on September 18, 2014 at 4:20 PM
Hello, Toontown Rewritten staff! I'm here to thank you for all you've been doing to us - old and new toontown players - and to tell you that if you ever need any help translating the game to Portuguese (PT-BR), count me in! I don't know any mean to contact you other than here, so I'll just hope you'll be reading this soon. Once again, THANK YOU for bringing this game back to us. I remember having a lot of good moments in my childhood with the online friends I made here, and I got so disappointed when I heard it was closing... But, thanks to you, it's definitely not happening, and I hope it will stay that way for a long, long time. :)

I can't wait for the Toonfest!

Cavalheiro Detonador said on September 19, 2014 at 7:23 AM
Sou brasileiro, hehe falo português, assim como muitos do meu pais, esperamos uma tradução em pt-br, mas até la estou muito feliz, principalmente por quer vou voltar a jogar toontown obrigado =)

Tortoiseshel said on September 19, 2014 at 12:09 PM
I wonder why Disney made separate servers when SpeedChat is such good way to communicate to people in other languages. Kind of a wasted opportunity! Y yo puedo hablar español, por lo que si ustedes necesitan ayuda, estoy aquí :)
