WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger are used by users all around the globe and with that, the language barrier is bound to happen.

Your friend or colleague may message you in Russian or Spanish, which you might not understand.

To understand the message in the language you’re familiar with, you can copy the message and switch to Google Translate. After that, paste the text into Google Translate to finally translate the message.

Doing this once or twice is fine but what if you have to do this over and over again. Tedious, isn’t it? To avoid that, we are here with this tutorial about a WhatsApp translator that will let you translate WhatsApp messages or Facebook chats instantly within the app itself.

The method will not only work for WhatsApp or Facebook but also for other apps. This means you can translate within any app on Android.

So, let’s get on with the steps.

  1. None of the pictures or the way to make this work were right. I did find the settings and turned it on. But the icon does not pop out. Still doesn’t work.
