Slash Command

/translate ("slash translate")

The /translate slash command is the original feature of Translate for Slack. Where it all started. It performs the same functions as the form described above, by entering a command-line style message into the composer. Enter /translate followed by a language code, followed by the text to be translated, like this:


  • the command and language should be plaintext, they should not have any formatting in them

  • only a space should separate the command from the language code and another space between the code and the text

  • you can enter /translate help to get list of language codes

The translation appears as a message visible only to you, with a button to (optionally) post the translation into the current channel.
