I often say that each week has a theme for client questions, and last week's 'theme' was translation - how to translate a non-English web page to English, and vice-versa.
In this article we will look at how easy it is to use your mobile device (iPad, iPhone, or Android phone/tablet) to translate a web page that is in another language into English
(Here is a separate article that covers how to do the same thing on a computer.)
On any mobile device - use the Chrome app
An option that works on all mobile devices is to download and install the Google Chrome app from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store.
When you go to a page that is in a different language, you will see a button for Translate at the bottom right. In the example below, I have visited a blog written in Dutch. By tapping the Translate option, you can see in the third image that the page has been converted to English! Magic! I can also choose to 'Always translate' from that language if I am going to read Dutch (or whatever language applies) pages on a regular basis.
You will then need to enable the Safari extension that comes with this app. If you are not sure how to do this, here is the Handy Hint in our iTandCoffee Club library
(Important Note. Handy Hints are for iTandCoffee Club members - find out more about joining The iTandCoffee Club here.)
Having enabled the Microsoft Translator extension, next time you need to convert a page to English, you can just choose the Share symbol and tap the Translator option in the bottom row of the Share menu. Then wait just a little while for the translation to complete. You will see Translated to en at the top when it is done.
