At some point in our life we have required a tool to help us understand the meaning of words written in another language . For example, we remember when we were studying and had a bilingual dictionary on hand to do our homework. Today the new Google translate translator makes our lives easy.
One of the most practical tools that Google puts at our disposal is its translator. Currently, it has quite interesting improvements. How is the Google Translate translator used and works? We want to explain it to you here in this post. Join us and you will see how many utilities this valuable tool contains .
Google Translate on computers
We find it easily with our search engine and when we open it we will see a fairly simple, understandable and easy-to-use interface. At the top left you will find two options: “Text” and “Documents”. For the first, we will be able to carry out direct translations of up to 5000 words , while the second is designed to translate documents in various types of formats.
If we press documents, we can select a file located on the computer, the translator will add it and we click the “Translate” button on the right side. The fully translated document will be shown to us in the language we have chosen. Keep in mind that translations are not one hundred percent accurate, but they do serve as a great guide.
On the left side of the Google Translate translation area we place the language we want to translate from. It is noteworthy that you have the option to detect it on your own.
Here we write down the words, copy and paste from another site; but we can also activate the microphone icon so that by voice input the application inserts the words and thus hear the voice of the translator. On this side, we will place another icon next to the microphone that allows us to listen to the texts.
On the right side we place the final language of the translation and the final result of the word or words in question is shown. From this side we can listen to the pronunciation of the translated words , copy and paste it in another place, suggest changes and even share it via email or Twitter. Another option it gives us is to highlight the translation, for this we press the star icon.
Other noteworthy points is that when entering the words to be transferred, a tab is displayed that offers definitions, synonyms and other information about it in both languages. Google Translate contains a database for the translation of more than one hundred known languages .
Translator on mobile devices
We can access the translator using the browser or downloading the App located in Google Play or App Store. The options offered by the application are quite practical since with it we can translate the same languages that are on the web. In the same way, we write down the input and output languages and write or assign by voice the words to be translated.
The Google Translate application also has a system that allows us to use the camera to focus on a text and superimpose the translation on the image itself. It is able to detect words using the camera’s scanner and will translate them by running your finger over it.
A great option is the one that it gives us by pressing “Conversation”. We select the input and output languages and we can have conversations with other people as he translates and reads the words he hears.
It also has the “Touch to translate” function, currently available for Android, which allows us to copy and paste texts to translate them. We can transfer them from any courier, we stick them and touch the bubble that is superimposed, we click on it and that’s it! Translated words.
