Communicating with someone who speaks and writes in another language isn’t the easiest task, but this Google Sheet incorporates Google Translate so you can have a real-time chat conversation with anybody in the world.
Over at the tech blog Digital Inspiration, Amit Agarwal created a Google Sheet that’s powered by Google Scripts, and translates all language pairs that are supported by Google Translate in real-time. This means that once you save a copy of the Google Sheet to your own Google Drive, you can share it with anyone who writes in another language and have a real-time chat within the document. Just enter your contact’s name along with yours in the cells provided, select each participants native language from a drop-down menu, and start typing in the colored fields.
It may not be a 100% perfect translation, but it’s a great way to communicate quickly with someone in another part of the world. For instructions on downloading the Google Sheet and how to operate it, check out the link below.
