Feature Status

Automatic Translation - Automatic Updates

Currently, any of the improvements that we are making via Roblox Translate are not replacing the old translations for experiences who have enabled automatic translation. This feature will allow us to automatically update translations for creators who have opted into AT so that all experiences can benefit from the improvements we make.
Investigating

Automatic Translation - Experience Listings

All experiences are automatically translated to all supported languages (experience listings). All experiences are currently eligible to enable automatic translation for experience listings, but this rollout will enable AT by default for all experiences. An A|B test is planned for Q3 2022.
