Hi Eve Dev
I have another Ide to improve the game, more and more games have build in a langrage translate, so when someone types Russian, it will auto translate it to English in chat ore any langrage you want it to.

Google-translating everything is a terrible idea. Having the client capable of communicating simple phrases cross-localization is a fun idea, and it challenges people to find new and exciting ways of expressing obscenities to people in other countries.

10 internet points if you get THAT reference.

well i was not talking about google translating, there is a lot of translaters that can be use and it will not get it right all the time, but it can be a big help, let me say it this way, i play a game, with a lot of japanise gamers, i am from denmark, i dont not understand a thing they write, if there was a translater, and some of it, is not working quit well, but it makes it easyer for them to understand me, and me to understand them in a hectic situation. in sted of usering 3 party translation tools

Something like this isn't feasible to implement.

Spend 10 minutes typing things you see in Local Chat into Google Translate if you don't believe me.

Okay?

That's not a good response to criticism, if you can't even defend your idea to other players then CCP certainly isn't going to do anything with it.

There are ideas posted here every day (though most of it's moved to the new forums now, along with the devs) and this exact idea was on here less than a month ago. If you don't have a good idea then nothing is going to happen.
