Message Translation

Expecting your users to copy and paste messages to an external translation service is unmanageable, especially in a group chat. Enable real-time translation instead.

SMASH the language barrier with instant message translation

Having to copy and paste messages to an external translation service like Google Translate is unmanageable for your users, especially in a group chat. It simply takes too much time to let them take part in the conversation, which could very well have moved on by the time it took to understand the message. Instant real-time translation is the solution.

We support translation between the following 25 languages: Arabic, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Hebrew, Hindi, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Malay, Norwegian, Persian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, and Turkish.

To enable the Message Translation extension, open your dashboard and explore the application for which you would like to enable translation. In the extensions tab, enable Message Translation then follow the documentation for your platform.

CometChat translates the messages in real-time and puts the translated message exactly where you expect it – alongside the original message in the form of metadata. As a developer, it is then up to you what you do with this data. For inspiration, read our blog post on thumbnail generation.
