How To Translate a Page on Android

Language is the biggest barrier to communicating with foreign language people. When you like to read novels and articles written in a different language, it would be hard to read.

To translate a foreign language, we use the Google translate feature. We also refer to offline or online dictionaries to know the real meaning.

The SnapTrans app could help you to translate a page on the Android phone. If you'd like to chat with foreign people, you don't have to struggle to speak. You can reply to them instantly using this real-time translation app.
