Did you ever feel, I wish I could communicate with someone or understand what one communicates without actually understanding the language. We understand your problem. We are excited to launch message translation which will break language barrier and helps translate messages In-Chat instantly

Instantly translate your messages

To make chatting (in any language) easy and smooth, we are excited to introduce CometChat new message translation feature!

When your users speak in different languages, there comes a need to communicate with each other. Message translation helps in translating any message sent to the receiver to the default language setting of their app or browser
