QQ International lets you overcome linguistic barriers and comes with a live chat translator. It’s a great way to connect with people from all over the world and make new friends without necessarily being a linguist!
The chat translator is available on Windows, Android, and iPhone/iOS.
QQ International for iPhone/iOS and Android
Instantly translate your incoming chats in QQ International for Android or iPhone/iOS by tapping on any incoming message. Please notice that the performance of this function may vary according to your network settings.
If you want to change the destination language you can do so via Settings -> Translator as below:
QQ International for Windows
Start a conversation with a contact and inside the chat window you’ll find the “Translate” button at the bottom left corner.
How to Translate Incoming Messages
To translate incoming message you simply need to highlight the text and click on the icon. The selected text will be automatically translated according to your settings (which you can change at any time – see below for more).
How to Translate Outgoing Messages
Write up your chat as you would normally do… and click on “Translate” to send it. Once sent, your message will be automatically translated according to your options. That’s it!
For each chat window, QQ International will remember what language you used last time. To save time, we recommend you to use the hotkey ALT+E to translate your messages instead of clicking on the “Translate” button.
Make sure you’ve customized your translator settings before using it. Click on the “Translator” button, then click on the “Translator Settings” button as below.
The Translator Settings interface:
- Add or delete destination language(s) for your translated chats
- Select whether to send the original chat in addition to its translation
- Automatically translate all messages you send out
(by default, after clicking “Translate” you need to click“Send” to send the translated message to your contact)
- Hide or display the translate button in your chat windows
Once you customize your translator settings, click OK to save.
