How to translate text within images using Google Translate

For a long time, Google Translate has been a useful tool for many users across the globe as it helps detect various foreign languages and translate them into your preferred language. It is available on Android, iOS, and the web. Google offers another useful feature within the Translate app that can help you translate the text inside images.

Google Translate image text translation approach
Previously, Google users relied on Google Lens to translate the text in images for quite some time. However, this approach only overlapped the text you wanted to translate with the results. However, its latest version, which is also there in the Google Translate app, completely replaces the old text with the translated text using colour blocks. This change is powered by the same technology that is behind the Magic Eraser feature in Pixel phones.

Moreover, Google Translate can convert a text into any of the 132 supported languages. However, it is important to note that the clearer the text is, the better the results will be.
