Google is adding partial text translation to Chrome. What is partial text translation?
The regular method allows you to translate the entire webpage. For example, I am writing this article in English. You could translate this page into your own language. Google wants to add a bit more flexibility to this process.
What if, instead of the whole page, you want to translate a sentence or a paragraph? The new partial translation can help.
Partial Text Translation
Google is currently testing partial text translate behind an experimental flag. That means you should go to chrome://flags and enable the following flag to get this feature working:
Desktop Partial Translate: Enables the Partial Translate feature on Desktop, which allows users to translate text selections on the page through the right-click context menu. – Mac, Windows, Linux, ChromeOS, Fuchsia, Lacros.

To translate sentences or paragraphs on Chrome:
- Select the text you want to translate.
The first step is to select a word, sentence, or paragraph to translate. Use your mouse or trackpad to select the text.
- Right-click the selected text.
Right-click the selected text to open the context menu and choose Translate to.
- Google Chrome will now translate the selected text.
You should now be able to read the translated text.
