Turn Google Translate on or off for users

As an administrator of your organization's Google Accounts, you can control who uses Google Translate. Just turn the service on or off for those users in your Admin console. Users who have Google Translate turned on can translate text, documents, images, and more across hundreds of languages on Android/iOS mobile apps or the web. Users whose service is off are unable to access Google Translate via the website; the Android and iOS mobile apps will continue to work when the service is off, but saved translations are unavailable, similar to a signed out experience.

Control who uses Google Translate in your organization

Before you begin: To turn a service on or off for certain users, put their accounts in an organizational unit (to control access by department) or add them to an access group (to allow access for users across or within departments).

  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

    Sign in using your administrator account (does not end in @gmail.com).

  2. In the Admin console, go to Menu ""and then"" Appsand thenAdditional Google services.
  3. Click Google Translate
    Tip: Scroll to see all services. Or at the left, choose a Filter to narrow the list, for example, based on status or popularity.
  4. Click Service status.
  5. To turn on or off a service for everyone in your organization, click On for everyone or Off for everyone, and then click Save.

  6. (Optional) To turn a service on or off for an organizational unit:
    1. At the left, select the organizational unit.
    2. To change the Service status, select On or Off.
    3. Choose one:
      • If the Service status is set to Inherited and you want to keep the updated setting, even if the parent setting changes, click Override.
      • If the Service status is set to Overridden, either click Inherit to revert to the same setting as its parent, or click Save to keep the new setting, even if the parent setting changes.
        Note: Learn more about organizational structure.
  7. To turn on a service for a set of users across or within organizational units, select an access group. For details, go to turn on a service for a group.
