Almost all of us have used Google Translate at some point to translate a word or text into our language. But sometimes it would also be very convenient to be able to translate words or phrases without having to write them. If you have ever needed it, surely you have wondered how to translate by voice in Google Translate . Next, we will show you the steps you must follow:
- On your smartphone or tablet, open the Translator app
- Choose the combination of languages in which you want to translate. In Del: choose the language in which you are going to speak and in To: the language to which you want to translate
- Click on the button shaped like a microphone
- When the application shows you the legend Speak now, say the phrase you want to translate
The process is fairly simple. The only thing you have to keep in mind is that before you can carry out the translation, you need to have given Google Translate the necessary permissions to be able to access the microphone . If you’re not sure whether you’ve done it or not, don’t worry, because the moment you’re going to speak, the application itself will tell you whether or not it has permission to listen to you.
You can also translate by voice from your PC if you have a microphone connected to it and if you have given it the necessary permissions to do so.
HOW TO ACTIVATE SIMULTANEOUS TRANSLATION IN GOOGLE TRANSLATE
If you are going to have a conversation with a person who does not speak the same language as you, what you need is to know how to activate simultaneous translation in Google Translate . To do this, the first steps are the same as in the previous step, that is, first you will have to choose between which languages you want to translate. Later, instead of the microphone, we will have to touch the Conversation button.
Next, if we press the Automatic button, the application will identify which of the two languages we are speaking and will translate. On the other hand, if we want to pause the translation in one of the two languages, we will have to press the button with a microphone and the name of said language below.
If you haven’t fully understood something that the app has translated for you and you want to listen to it again, all you have to do is click on the box where the translation has appeared , and it will repeat the sentence again. In any case, everything you translate will remain written, so you can read it whenever you want. And when you have finished the conversation and want to stop translating, you will only have to press the back button and you will return to the translator’s home screen, being able to translate individual words or phrases again.
