Hi all,

This past week we replaced the Google Translate texts for TypeRacer Portuguese with high-quality, user-submitted texts. This is a continuation of the TypeRacer International project which began years ago back in 2009.

We’d like extend a big “thank you!” to Dudiellon ✟♔AhK♔✟ (dudiellon) for his help in collecting and entering the texts into the system. (Additional thanks go to Jorge Luiz, Gilberlan, Dan Cordeiro, Junior Panizio, and Felipe Moutinho). Dudiellon is also a TypeRacer moderator and one of our champion Portuguese/Brazilian typists, with 47,000 races and a top score of 190wpm. We asked him for a statement for this announcement, and here’s what he has to say:

“Olá comunidade Typeracer… Gostaria de expressar aqui toda minha alegria e satisfação pela conquista que obtivemos no universo Português. Há muito tempo que estamos já na busca de novos textos para o nosso idioma.  Quero agradecer a todos que se disponibilizaram a nos ajudar nessa empreitada. Sem vocês nada disso seria possível; Jorge Luiz, Gilberlan, Dan Cordeiro, Junior Panizio, Felipe Moutinho (Me desculpem se esqueci de alguém kkk). Obrigado por nos ajudar com os novos textos e sempre estar nos motivando. E especialmente ao David Valikor e ao Alex Epshteyn por toda paciência que tiveram comigo.  Muito obrigado!” — Dudiellon ✟♔AhK♔✟ (dudiellon), Oct. 15 2017

TypeRacer Language Picker

Use “More Options” on the main TypeRacer page to choose the language you want to TypeRace in.

Interested in helping add texts to TypeRacer in your language? Here’s what you can do:

  1. Submit quotes using the Contribute link at the bottom of the TypeRacer page.
  2. Help us review quotes for your language, and enter them into the system. We speak English/Russian/Chinese/Spanish, but we can’t review text submissions in any other languages. Email support@typeracer.com if you want to help.

Thanks!

The quotes in Portuguese no longer use Google Translate, making them easier, more fun to type, and better for real-world practice.

Today we added 400 new English quotes/texts, from 220 different movies/books/songs etc.; as usual, we’ve included a combination of critically-acclaimed, popular, and other user-submitted texts. The addition of this batch brings the main English universe on TypeRacer to 4,100 quotes. A list of the top ~40 sources we’ve added the quotes from is below. This batch also includes all the qualified texts previously featured in the TypeRacer Championship on TypeRacerData.com.

As a reminder, you can view all of our texts in our new searchable text database, as previously mentioned in this blog post.

Thanks to the 59 TypeRacers who submitted quotes included in this batch. Their usernames are listed at the bottom of this post.

Submit your favorite quotes (any language) to TypeRacer here: contribute 

Hope everyone enjoys the new quotes! We’re looking forward to more contributions to help us reach out goal of 10,000 English quotes (and more quality quotes in other languages)!

See everyone on the track,
