How to Translate in Google Slides | Quick Tips & Tutorial for your presentations

Translation is one of the oldest professions in the world, and it has now become a new importance in our society because of globalization. Maybe you need to present the same idea to different teams worldwide, or one of your colleagues speaks a different language and you want to make sure that they understand the content perfectly.  

What options do you have? Of course, the ideal option is to rely on a professional translator, but sometimes you don’t have the time or the ressources, so in this tutorial we are going to show you how to translate Google slides.  

Slides Translator is a Google Chrome extension that automatically translates text in your Slides. Installing it is very easy and can be done in two easy steps.

How to Use Slides Translator

Now you are ready to use Slides Translator! This tool will be available in the “Add-ons” menu in Google Slides. Let’s check how it works! For this example, we have used the presentation Kindergarten Sight Word Books.

In order to translate on Google Slides, you only need to click on Add-ons > Slides Translator > Translate Text Box.

Translating a text box with Slides Translator

Now you only need to select the text box you want translated, choose the target language and click Translate! Sadly, this tool can only translate one text box at a time and, since the translations are automated, they can have errors, but it’s still an amazing extension that your international clients will surely appreciate! 

Slidesgo has an amazing offer on presentations, and even has some templates in German, French and Spanish! Check our website and discover them.
