New config option: SendWarningOnJoin = true
Added Sponge reload command support.
Updated for SpongeAPI 4.1.0
Now built for sponge 4.x
Added a command to reload the config, now tells user the error if an error occurred while setting their language.
Fixed an issue where TranslateWithBing was ignoring the players override language setting with the command.
Updated minor version, no features added, but it now no longer needs the libraries it uses on the classpath as it includes them for you in the jar.


@Inscrutable Should work now if you want to test it again.

Tested version 1.0.2 of TranslateWithBing on a LAN server with SpongeForge 1096, after setting up the free Azure Data service, and it worked fine for clients with mismatched language settings. Version 1.0.3 is now running on SpongeVanilla on the community server ( if anyone wants to test it out.

seems to be working fine except for the fact that it spams that translations may not be accurate for everyone that joins, could we have a config option for it?

It should only spam it when someone with a different language then the rest of the server joins. But sure I can add a toggle.

Sorry if anyone was waiting on an update, I had updated it locally but didn’t realize I hadn’t published the changes.

Give it a go and report any bugs.
