Follower Question Answered

An anonymous Tumblr user asks, “Is there anything akin to a universal translator that may be used in diplomatic settings? Or are individuals who act as translators still preferred?”

Everyone’s favorite bugs, the Ix, patented a universal translator called the babel implant upon first reaching the stars. The implants can be expensive, though, so there are lots of other alternatives when it comes to languages.

Some people choose to use computers with translation software(purchasable in the equipment section of the Core Sourcebook) while others prefer to go the more traditional route and study languages, as per the Linguist background option.

Diplomats across the Nacora are most likely to have a translator themself, or a trusted aide who has one, though there are some organizations that prefer to use non-technological translation in the form of living translators.
