Google automatically translating local reviews in Maps, Search


Google is making it easier to find good places to check out while you’re in a foreign place.

Google will now automatically translate local reviews in Google Maps and Google Search to the language set on your device. The original text will also appear below the translation in case you’d like to see what it looks like.


Manually translating a review can be tedious, forcing you to copy the text, switch to a translation app, paste the text, and then wait for the translation to occur. And then you’ve got to repeat that process for however many reviews you’d like to read. With Google’s automatic translations, though, you can spend less time translating and more time enjoying the place that you’re visiting.
