How To Use Google Translator

Published at 03/07/2012 05:58:55


Google Translator is a language translation service that translates between all major languages on Earth. It has come to replace most dictionaries, PDAs and phrase guides. It' also available as an app on Android and iOS devices, such as the iPad, iPod and iPhone.

For those who don't know how to use this very useful language translation app, we're going to show a five-step, easy-to-do guide to how to use Google translation.

Step 1

The first step is to ensure you either have a computer, laptop, smartphone, tablet or any device that has a screen, a keyboard or alphabetical input device and an Internet connection. Make sure you have a working Internet connection and that your device is capable of displaying foreign language fonts. On laptops and tablets the latter condition is irrelevant, as they'll display foreign fonts regardless of packs.

Step 2

The second step is to type, and from there search the keywords Google Translate. You can also access Google Translator directly by typing in to your URL bar. On your smartphone or tablet, you can use anyone of these two methods. A third away is to simply use an app, you can get Google Translator apps from the Android Market, iOS Appstore and there is even a JAVA app in case you don't have a smartphone.

Step 3

Once you have managed to access the Google translator page, it is time to prepare your text. Google Translator can translate any non-English language into English (example: Korean into English), or English into any non-English language (example: English into Korean). It can also translate a non-English language into another non-English language (example: Korean into Spanish).

You can translate an entire webpage, a document or just a snippet of text. So search for, prepare and keep your text ready for translation. As long as you can copy and paste the intended text, it should be usable in Google Translator.


Step 4

The next step is to actually translate the text, just copy and paste your text in to left window. Google Translate is automatically set up to identify a foreign language and translate it into English. If you wish to translate the language in another way, just configure the languages on the two language tabs above the translation boxes. Once you've customized you language settings, just press the blue translate button.

Step 5

The final step is audio. You can listen to both the foreign text, English text and non-English texts. You can also choose to see alternative words and even translate a complete document if you wish, using the Google Translator document upload feature. Just click on the "Translate document" link on the lower page. The link will take you to a upload page,  upload a document from your computer's personal drive and then simply translate it.


Google Translator remembers your top five languages.

Google Translator can help you find out a word or sentence in another language quickly.

Google translation can make mistakes, so always double check you sentences to make sure they are correctly spelled or at least make sense in the sentence's context.
