Bottom Line

Chrome can translate many foreign and native languages into readable text formats. If you visit any foreign language website like Chinese or Japanese, consider using the translate feature.

Please note that the translation feature only works on text, not graphical images or videos. You can use any OCR app for translating text within any image file.

Similarly, you can enable the auto-translate on Chrome computers just like we did for smartphones.
