Translate a Webpage Text in Chrome on Computer

With the help of Google Translate, Google Chrome has a built-in translator that automatically detects the language and converts it into the desired selected output language.

You can also enable auto-translation, directly converting the foreign text into the desired language. However, it does not converter text written on the images.

In this guide, I have shared written instruction about:

Translate the Page Content

Chrome offers the feature to auto-translate into a selected output language. Here are the steps to translate a page:

  1. Launch the Chrome browser on the computer.
  2. Click on the More vertical 3-dots icon menu and select the Settings menu.
  3. Scroll to the bottom and click on the Advanced Settings options.
  4. Expand the Language menu within the Advanced section.
  5. Choose the Langauge preference in the order (top = high priority).
  6. Enable the toggle button against — Offer to translate pages that aren’t in a language you read.

It will automatically translate the website content without issues and display the readable version.

You can also choose the language of your preference for output translation within the browser while translating.

Chrome also offers the feature to spell check, which automatically verifies the spelling of the text. It’s default set to Basic spell check, but you can choose the Enhanced spell check used by Google search. Isn’t Chrome translate an excellent feature?

Bottom Line

Chrome uses the translate feature to auto-translate the foreign language sites into your native selected language. You can either choose the translation in real-time or enable the auto-translation.

Similarly, you can translate the web page in Chrome on Android. The translation will automatically detect and translate the language into our chosen language.
