Now You Can Transcribe Speech with Google Translate

Google Translate has launched a new feature Transcribe available for Android only at this time. This new feature lets you translate and transcribe audio in real-time. A full roll-out over the next few days will support any combination between English, French, German, Hindi, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Thai.

The transcribe feature works best in a quiet environment with one person speaking at a time. Conversation mode in the app will continue to help you to have a back and forth translated conversation with someone.  Google has plans to launch this on iOS in the future.

To use Google Translate –

  1. Access Transcribe by downloading or updating to the most recent version of the app, and then pressing the “Transcribe” option from the home screen. 
  2. Select the source and target languages from the language dropdown at the top. You can pause or restart transcription by tapping on the mic icon. 
  3. You also can see the original transcript, change the text size or choose a dark theme in the settings menu, and save your transcript, too.
