Have you ever wanted to read a foreign language website in your native language online and failed? Perhaps it did not work out because you did not know about Google Translate. Google Translate helps you to read foreign languages in the language of your choice. Interestingly, it does not just translate a single web page, users can browse an entire website in the chosen language, and even change languages as you browse. This is very interesting, right? Further, Google Translate is ideal for accurate translation. However, be careful not to use it for official purposes, as it can make mistakes.
How to translate an entire website using Google Translate
Follow these steps below:
- Firstly, go to your web browser and go to translate.google.com. You must not have a Google account to access it, it’s free.
- Secondly, you will see a text box on the left, enter the entire URL (including the http://) of the website you want to translate.
- Thirdly, proceed to the right side of the website and choose the language you want to see the website in.
- Lastly, click Translate. Now, you will see the texts in the language of your choice.
To browse the entire website in that language, click links on the site as long as you stay within the Google Translate user interface.
The Translate toolbar at the top helps you perform the following tasks:
- Change the translation language on the fly from the drop-down menu.
- Also, the Next to View tab helps you toggle back and forth between the translated website and the site in its original language.
However, it is important to know that Google Translate translates only the actual text on a page. So, if you see any word or phrase not translated, know that it is not on the actual text on the page. Any text that appears in an image is not translated.
Now you can easily translate any foreign language to a language you can understand. I hope you got value from this writing. Please keep your questions in the comment section.
