Keep getting a ( (flag:gb). What is that?

This has been happening the last few months. Most of my messages up with something lik ( (flag:gb)  \u003e.\u003e ) or ( (flag:gb)  estimate ) or anything like that. It's really annoying and I don't know whats going on. Any answers on how to stop it would greatly be appreciated.

Have you installed Clownfish or another similar translation application?

 

In Skype open Tools -> Options -> Advanced settings. At the bottom of this screen you should see a menu item saying “Manage other programs access to Skype”. Click on this menu. Do you now see any applications listed there?

Yes I do have clownfish. Is that's what is causing it? If it is, should I remove it or is there another way?

Clownfish is responsible for this auto-translation of your messages to English. If you uninstall this application, the issue will be solved. You may also look for configuration options in Clownfish which may stop this auto-translation.
