How to use Google Translate offline and get accurate translations wherever you are

The Google Translate app makes it easy for you to get by in a country where you don’t speak the local language, even when you don’t have Wi-Fi.

With Google Translate’s offline feature, you can translate languages ​​on your mobile phone or tablet from anywhere, as long as you’ve done a few proper configurations before going offline.

Google Translate can even translate instantly i signs through your phone’s camera, although that feature may not work properly (or not work at all) unless you download the language.

Here’s how to use the app to translate languages ​​when you’re offline.

How to use Google Translate offline

You will need to download each language you want to use offline in the Google Translate app and you will need an internet connection when you download.

How to update downloaded languages

Languages ​​are fluid and evolving, as is Google Translate. It is a good idea to periodically check the offline translation languages ​​to see if an update is available.

1. Tap the Settings icon at the bottom of the home screen.

2. Choose “Offline Translation”. A list of the languages ​​you have downloaded will appear.

3. Tap the “Update” option for the language you want. You may need to free up some space if the phone memory is very full.

It only takes a few moments to download a language library or an update, whether you’re using Wi-Fi or cellular data.

How to restrict Google Translate data usage on Android

The steps to download a language are the same for Android and iPhone or iPad, with one difference. On Android phones, you have the option to set parameters for data usage. This can help you avoid data charges when downloading languages ​​for offline use. That’s how.

1. Tap the Settings icon at the bottom of the home screen.

2. Choose “Data usage”.

3. Choose “Download offline translation file”.

4. You can select between two options. “Ask before downloading” will give you the opportunity to stop a download if you are not connected to Wi-Fi. The “Use Wi-Fi or mobile network” option will be downloaded via cellular network, if you are not connected to Wi-Fi.
