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!

David (valikorTRData)

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

Nice!
How many texts are now in this fresh Portuguese universe? And in Spanish?
I will try to contribute new texts in Spanish. 🙂

I’m so excited about the new texts, thank you for bringing this to our community, David and Dudiellon!
