Language Filter / in app translation
A language filter would be great. When uf traveling and ur in a coubtry where not everyone speaks English, French, Spanish, Portuguese etc it can be a huge task to connect with people. For example speaking English in French Africa. It would be great to filter on language so you can connect with people.
And another request is to having in app translation, with a stamp that it is translated so you can see that people are using translation. Kinda like browsing outside ur area.

The language filter is good, it enables, for example, communication between a Frenchman and a Belgian. But it is also good that we are able to translate https://www.translate.com/english-azerbaijani with the help of a translator. It would be useful to implement this function in the application, I think it would be very cool and will have a special success.

Tags to find people to visit each other, to show the country and at the same time has the opportunities to learn the language

Because I travel international a lot, It would be great if there was a translation button similar to what Uber and Lyft has for free.

My idea would be to implement a automatic language interpretation capability. this would convert one language into another automatically based on the receivers preferred language. if I send this to a spanish speaking person, they would ideally receive this message in spanish, without having to do anything.Google translation may be able to be integrated within grndr app. OR

It would be nice hungarian language in app. With volunteers.
The sentence structure of German is different from the english one.
"online 2 hours ago" would need to change into "ago 2 hours online"
The right sentence structure in German on the example pic would be:
"vor 2 Stunden online"
The German translation for „big“ is not „groß“ in this case. „Groß“ means „tall“ in the context of body type.
Better use „kräftig“

integrate a language translation solution for people

When you have a unlimited subscription, you should get unlimited translations, not stop at 1k until the next month. The reason I subscribe and pay a hefty fee each month is for the translator app on grindr, and now I can't even use it.There is no where in the contract that says translations are limited you need to let customers beware of this or fix it for us.
In whatsapp and other “chat apps” the language you write is memorised. So that when you chat in english with Mr Hot1 and in french with Mr Hot2, the automatic corrector adapts to each chat, switching between the languages. Specially useful when on holiday spot, when multilingual is everywhere.

Hello, I want to ask is it possible to add Czech language to the application. Thank you
Matthew Jackson commented
This feat. Should be free for everyone, especially when traveling outside your area or country where your native language isn't spoken or understood by most. We shouldn't have to pay to be understood. It's like saying you have to pay a subscription to vote becuz your gay!

It would be great if you'd partner with Google Translate to make the textual part of a profile translatable (Like FB posts). If this could be extended to the chat, even better. At the very least, you could make it possible to copy the textual part of a profile, so it could be copied and pasted into Google Translate.
Christian Leonard commented
unlimited subscribers have translator enabled however unless their chat recipients are also an unlimited subscriber (probability… low)
this is kinda useless as the chat is one way only ..
I am living in Portugal and not good in the language. When you look into profiles they are of course to 95 % in Portuguese. I suggest you make it possible copy the profile text and so one could use Google translator to get it into English. Today it's not possible copying the profile texts.

I'd like to be able to use the app in my own language...

Here’s the thing: I read the other NFR that was closed without being addressed and a lot of people mentioned that there should be no point in having a hookup with someone you can’t talk to. I agree. But I am from the US, living in Mexico, where communicating in-person with someone is relatively easy because 70% of human communication is non-verbal.
For anyone who speaks more than one language, you know that talking verbally with someone, seeing their body language, gestures, etc is one thing. Writing it is different. Reading it is even more different.
In an age of digital nomads, traveling around the world, sharing culture and connecting in new ways, Grindr should be doing everything they can to innovate and tear down walls that divide people.
After all, it is a relatively simple API call that could be integrated as a paid feature and I would pay for it. Win-win.
In the German app, "stocky" is incorrectly translated with "dünn" (= skinny)...
I just noticed after changing language
Translate front page of profile or at least allow copy and paste
Russell Bennett commented
The best part about Grindr is being able to meet people all over the world, but there is a huge language barrier because while you can translate messages, you can’t translate their bio to see what they are saying. You can’t even copy the text and paste it into a translation app.
