How to Translate Messages on Telegram

Written by Thirumalraj

Telegram has a message translation feature.

Let’s see the steps to enable this feature, configure and use it in detail. I use an Android phone and an iPhone.

Enable Translate Messages Feature in Telegram

Android

If you’re using an Android phone, follow these steps:

Open the Telegram app and tap the three horizontal lines at the top right.

Select Settings.

Tap Language between Devices and Telegram Premium.

In the Translate Messages section, you can see the Show Translate Button. Please enable it.

Now you can see this option: Do Not Translate. Using this option, you can set for which languages you don’t want a translation.

Tap it and select the languages you want.

Here’s how you can use this feature:

Open the chat and tap the message for which you want to use translation.

You can see the Translate option between Pin and Report. Hit it.

Now you can see the translation in the popup. Use the Close Translation button if you want to close the popup.

That’s all. Remember that Google may have access to the messages on which you use this feature.

iPhone

Launch the Telegram app and hit the Settings tab at the bottom.

Select Language between Appearance and Stickers and Emoji.

In the Translate Messages section, you can see these two options:

Show Translate Button: To enable or disable the translation feature. For the former, turn the switch on. For the latter, turn the switch off.

Do Not Translate: Using this option, you set which language you don’t want to translate. Hit it and tap the ones you prefer.

Here’s how to use this feature:

Open the conversation and long-press the message you want to translate.

Between Copy and Pin, you can see the Translate option. Tap it.

Now you can see the translated message.

Copy Translation is for copying the translated message.

You can change the detected and translation language using the Change Language option.

That’s all. Remember that Google may have access to the messages on which you use this feature.

Thanks for reading.
