If you want to install and use the Google Translate app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use Google Translate for your computer in 4 simple steps below:

Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here

Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.

Step 3: Google Translate for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type Google Translate in the search bar and press Search. Click on Google Translate application icon. A window of Google Translate on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the Google Translate icon. Click on it and start using the application.

Step 4: Google Translate for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use Google Translate for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

  • Terrible design - using the browser version is better

    By NYCJames
    I installed this because I frequently use the browser version in Google to translate between English and French and I thought the app would be more convenient. Took me less than a minute to see the flaws in it. It's a horribly designed app - for example, in the browser version you can "switch" the languages around to make the destination language the source language. This is really helpful if, for example, you wish to practice making sentences in a language and then switch them around to compare your sentence to how Google translates it. In the app, there is a switch button but it switches the TEXT between windows instead of just switching which is source and which is destination - so my French sentence goes into the English window and vice versa, meaning they don't get translated. This is either a really stupid bug or an inexcusable design flaw, and to be honest it's entirely what I've come to expect from Google software. There are ALWAYS really stupid bugs and oversights which people complain about for years but which they never fix. Oh well, uninstalling it now.
  • Great app, but one more function would make it perfect

    By Anonymous user 1013
    The app itself is amazing, however recently new translation apps have allowed one to simply type what they wish to translate into their messaging system(such as iMessages or WhatsApp)and it automatically translates it into the language you want with a simple click of the button... this is helpful when speaking to a person from another country. I like Google translate more than those apps, and feel they could do a better job then those apps. The apps I’m speaking of have subscription fees, I don’t believe this is the right way to do it because they turn many people from the app, and a down payment (if absolutely necessary) would be a much more attractive alternative. I suggest to Google that if you read this to take these words into mind when thinking on how to make the app significantly better than it already is.
  • Buggy app

    By BadWolf2112
    I have found Google's translation to be somewhat helpful, but this app is LOADED with bugs, especially with the voice function. The voice feature will stop working and require me to either go back to the typing screen, or exit the app, completely. Often, it will not transcribe my words properly, or it will cut me off mid-sentence. This function really could use a push-to-talk button that you hold until finished speaking. The "listen to both parties" function seems useless. Also, the voice translation function will often get the languages mixed around, even if the correct language button is pressed. I have frequently seen it flip the language selection so that it translates English to English - quite ridiculous! Lastly, don't try to say too much in a single go, or the spoken translation will never play. Request : I'd like to see external app usefulness - let it translate stuff that I highlight in other apps such as email or text messages, without the need to copy, change apps, and paste for my translation.
  • Super Helpful!

    By is maggie okay
    I use google translate a lot, as a Korean pop fan, sometimes translations don’t come out and I have to use google translate to translate what I want to see. Using the app makes it SO MUCH EASIER. I love the writing and camera feature. Sometimes the camera doesn’t always find all the words, but the feature is so helpful when im writing and I want to check my work, or if something is in a different language and I want to know what it is. The writing feature is also super awesome because I can write in the word in example, Korean and it translates it for me. Sometimes I do feel like the translations are not very accurate as in when I put the other translation through to check and it comes out as something different, but of course the translations can’t always be correct. Overall, the app is easy to use and I love it! ♥️🤠

  • Won’t clear history?😑🙁🙁

    By michaeljackson_mariahcarey
    I’m trying to clear my translation history but it’s not working cause it’s still there. Please fix! 🙁😐 Also it’d be nice if you guys had a different design for the app it’s kind of bland....!!🙁🙁🙁
  • Update Bug

    By Metlrabbit
    Clear Translations does not work after recent update. I have an iPhone 6.
  • Inaccurate for many languages

    By crinkster54
    I haven’t had to use this app to translate from English to some of the more commonly translated French or Spanish but the translation I needed to help me communicate better with a new emigrant from Poland was really awful. Incorrect tenses, masculine/feminine spellings and random errors with vowels actually embarrassed me. I even let the app “read” the translations aloud. My friend couldn’t stop laughing at me. I would rather have a limited number of accurate language translations than half-assed attempts at every language on earth. UNINSTALLED!!!
  • Needs more IOS support!

    By Furrensic
    I have a friend that uses this app in a gamewe both play on our phones. We play this game with people from several different countries. With the Tap To Translate function, she can just tap a couple buttons in game and can communicate effectively in several different languages. On her android. I have an iPhone. Tap to translate does not work on IOS. I am prepared to give a 5 * review if they only make this function available on IOS.

  • Inaccuracy

    By GoogleTranslateSucks
    Google translate is more often than not inaccurate. If you translate something and translate it back to the original language you you most likely will get something totally off
  • Done

    By kiwipalmer22
    So this is not free no more woooooooooooooooooooow I see how y’all feel
  • NEEDS SIRI SHORTCUTS, and some bugs

    By J018anT98
    There are some bugs still and responsiveness issues. Also, PLEASE add support for Siri shortcuts. This would be amazing! I can copy or highlight some text and just use the share button or widgets page and boom! One click translation to my perferred language. Can’t get better than that. Please add this.
  • Getting worse instead of better

    By Bahgrump
    Really quite bad. Even if I get a phrase from a native speaker so I know the spelling is correct .... the translation is so far off as to be useless. Totally incapable of dealing with vertical text in Japanese or Chinese even though that is normal for those languages. Sometimes OK with single words but basically no help with phrases and sentences.
  • Awesome Translation

    By haryMPB
    Although other people are saying that this App is loaded with bugs? Not to me, I'm using iPhone and this apps is free download and it works awesome without a problem at all. I love this app so much based in my own experienced, this is five star. Maybe those who complain about bugs and other problems just don't have the best and safest phone. Try to use this App with iPhone. iPhone supposed to be the safest phone compare to other brand. Thank you Google translate for this App. It helps me a lot to learn and improve my Norwegian. It's the best translation App!!! It's free!!!
