Google Translate is the world’s best-known free tool used by people who want to translate words or phrases from one language to another.

With support for more than a hundred languages and with its simplicity, this is an incredibly useful app for travel.

On the left, you type words or phrases in the language you are translating from and on the right, you choose the language you want translating to.

Fast, simple, and decently accurate. And the app also speaks the translations in the automated voice.

Can I Change The Voice On Google Translate?

The simple answer is NO, you still haven’t the option to change the voice on Google Translate. The only way to change the automated voice is to change the language.

There is still only one voice for each language that offers voice translation. This is due to the fact that the Google Translator utilizes various modules for a text-to-speech program per language supported by Google’s audible translation abilities.

Unfortunately, not every language spoken in Google Translate offers voice translation. There are a huge amount of languages, you’re able to hear the translation spoken aloud by Google Translate, but this doesn’t apply to all languages.
