[G Suite Tips] Translating text in Google Sheets

In fact, translating words in Google Sheets is as simple as inputting a formula. Here’s the formula:

=GOOGLETRANSLATE(“text”, “source language”, “target language”)

text: the text you want to translate

* The value for text must either be enclosed in quotation marks or be a reference to a cell containing the appropriate text.

source language: the language being translated from

*Please use the two-letter language code, e.g. “zh-TW” for Traditional Chinese or “en” for English.

target language: the language being translated to

* Please use the two-letter language code, e.g. “zh-TW” for Traditional Chinese or “en” for English.
