Translating Text Into Other Languages

Google Drive makes it easy to convert your work into any one of a wide range of languages, directly from the Docs editor, by leveraging Google’s ever-improving translation technology.

From the top menu, simply select Tools and then Translate Document …

You’ll then see a dialog box like the one shown. Choose your target language and a name for the translated document, and you’re good to go.

Like other automatic translation tools, Google Translate has limitations. While it can help in understanding the content of a foreign text, it doesn’t always offer perfect translations. Some languages produce more accurate results than others, the tool performing particularly well where English is the target language.
