  • Type "TBot ?" and you will see the help as follows. You can use "TBot change" to change the languages.

    Here are all the commands I understand:

    1 TBot lang - Show the current language pair

    2 TBot change - Select translation languages

    3 TBot stop - Stop translations

    4 TBot start - Start translations again

    5 TBot set - Set your preferred language

    6 TBot detect - Detect the language of the text

    7 TBot ? - Show this list of commands

  • Actually TBot displays the commands automatically even if you don't type ?.  So I doubt this helped.

    The problem is if you set tbot incorrectly, if you issue a tbot set command and change the interface to the wrong language, there does not appear to be a way to reset it.

  • Hi Joyce,

    Tbot set is the command you want to use.  Type tbot set first, it will then give you a list of default languages.  Type the number of the one you want, and your interface will change to that language.
