How To Turn Off Google Translate on Chrome For Android

Google Translate is a friendly feature available on the Chrome browser. Since Google Chrome is the product of Google, the app comes pre-installed on Android phones. Many users are getting used to it for browsing news and articles on daily basis. Chrome offers translation suggestions to read the pages in different languages. In this post, we will see how to turn off Google Translate on Chrome for Android.

Google Translate supports more than 140 languages. When you read a page that is written in a language you don't understand, Chrome helps you to translate the page. On Android, the translation suggestion appears at the bottom of the screen.

On the PC version, this may not be the case. Since the screen is big, it will not affect the user experience. As discussed above, translation suggestion affects the user experience on chrome for Android.
