Help improve Google Translate

You can help make our translations better and even add new languages as part of the Google Translate Community.

Join the Google Translate Community

  1. Go to the Google Translate Community.
  2. Sign in with your Google account.

Whenever you visit after you’ve joined, you may see the option to translate or validate words, phrases, or sentences in your languages.

Translate a new word or phrase

When you click Translate, Google Translate shows you words or phrases to translate into your language.

Tips for translating

Translate the word or phrase the same way you’d speak or write it. Correct any grammar errors you see. For example, if the translation says "how old is you," translate it as "how old are you."

Use the same:

  • Capitalization
  • Tone, like formal or informal
  • Idioms and slang

If you’re missing important information, like the subject’s gender or relationship to you, translate it the way you think it should be written.

Note: We may show your contributions to other users (without identifying you), so don’t include anything private or personal.

Validate an existing translation

When you click Validate, Google Translate shows you several translations of a word or phrase into your language. Mark which ones are right or wrong.

Help add new languages

You help us add new languages to Google Translate quickly by translating and validating.

We pay special attention to written languages that native speakers can help us translate and that are used a lot on the web.
