Translate by speech

You can translate spoken words and phrases if your device has a microphone. In some languages, you'll hear the translation spoken aloud.

  1. Go to the Google Translate page.
  2. Choose the language input.
  3. At the bottom left of the text box, click Speak Speak.
  4. When told to "Speak now," say what you want to translate.
  5. To stop recording, click Speak Speak.

Tip: Currently, speech mode does not support the "Detect language" feature.

To allow the Chrome browser to get access to microphone, visit Use your camera & microphone.

This feature is only available on Chrome. Learn how to download & install Chrome.
