[Tip] Translate Text, Voice or Scanned Text Offline on Android Without Internet

If you have gone on a trip to some other place where people are not familiar with your mother tongue and luckily if Google Translate can help translate everything in your language at that place then it is quite obvious that you must be using it again and again. So, when you are using Google Translate frequently then it will be great if you could translate that language without the need for internet because it may happen that you may get out of reach of the cellular data network. Moreover if any application could do that in an offline manner then it will faster than the online mode.

In this post we will mentioned a method with the help of which you will be able to translate the languages in the offline mode. This procedure will require you to download the package of that language on your phone which will not be much but in 70 or 80 MBs and once it is done you will be able to do the translation without the need of internet. Now open the application and you will see the screen mentioned below.

Now tap the soft-key on your Android phone for the options and there you will see the option of Offline languages, just tap that option.


Now select any of the language available on the list of languages which is available on your screen and tap it.


It will ask you whether to ask you again before downloading such a huge file. Select the appropriate option and then tap OK.


The language pack will start downloading and then on the top of that list you will see your language with English language (which is available offline as default).


That’s it!! Now in this case I have downloaded Spanish pack and whenever I will do the translation from English to Spanish it will be an instant thing.

Bonus Tip:

Follow the same steps as mentioned above and instead of the option of offline languages, select SMS Translation and then choose any of the SMS available on the list.


Once you select an SMS, its text will be copied in the application and you will just have to scroll down to see the translation.



There is one thing you should note here is that the iOS app of google translate does not have this feature active.
