How to Auto-Translate a Webpage in Chrome Computer

Learn how to translate a website page on Google Chrome computer browser. The translation helps in translating foreign languages into a known language script.

With the help of Google Translate, Google Chrome has a built-in translator which 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.

Auto-Translate Web Page on Chrome browser

Google Chrome offers a translation feature that automatically translates foreign languages into native or known languages. It uses Google Translate to convert the foreign text within the website to replace it with readable text.

The translation happens in real-time without any delay. All the unreadable text in the foreign script will be translated into the chosen language. This feature in Google Chrome helps you to learn some very informative articles written in other languages after getting translated into your language. Moreover, this can also help you to learn some new foreign languages.

One thing I like about the auto-translation feature is that Google Chrome automatically detects the website language and translates it into a preferred one. We also have the option to choose any other output language.

Enable Auto-Translation

Often we visit a website that isn’t available in our native language. Hence we need to copy and paste the text into the translation site. However, 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 More vertical 3dots icon menu for options.
  3. Select the Settings menu from the list.
  4. Scroll to the bottom and click on the Advanced Settings options.
  5. Expand the Language menu within the Advanced section.
  6. Choose the Langauge preference in the order (top = high priority).
  7. Enable the toggle button against — Offer to translate pages that aren’t in a language you read.

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 also translate the web page in Chrome Android browser. The translation will automatically detect and translate the language into our chosen language. The auto-translate Chrome is a fantastic feature indeed.
