Google is now bringing new options to users on the web, and that list includes the translation feature. With Google Translate on the desktop, you can now convert the text in images to other languages.
For years you have been able to translate text to get spoken responses. But now Google Translate web version helps you translate the text in an image. The feature is quite easy to use and all you need to do is visit the Google Translate website and get the translation done.
Google Translate for text in images: how it works
– Open the Google Translate website on your desktop
– Click on the Pictures tab at the top left
– Browse your computer for images to be translated
– You can upload a .jpg, .jpeg or .png image for translation
– You can see the original and translated images on your screen
– Google gives you a choice of 130 languages to translate the text of images. The system translates the text into the default language you selected.
The feature also becomes useful as you can download the translated image or even copy the translated text to show other people while you are moving. Having this option on mobile was possible thanks to Google Lens, but now that this feature has moved to the web, even desktop users can use help while visiting other countries.
Google also has other useful tools for people on different platforms. Maps continue to evolve with an improved interface and better application for various options available. Maps on the cars also recently received a much-needed boost, allowing you to stream content and navigate at the same time.
The company is also targeting the AI space with the Bard AI chatbot which is expected to rival ChatGPT and other chatbots in the near future. Google wants to integrate AI into its search and other products.
