Starting in 2006, Google Translate officially supports 133 languages to date and is adding more languages under its translation services. Even with so many languages, you are still stuck with the default voice on your translate app.
On top of that, you can’t change the app’s voice gender — i.e, it doesn’t allow you to change the default voice, be it to male or female. This is because most languages have the default voice as a female, and only a few of them, like Albanian and Croatian, use the male voice.
Nonetheless, there are few options you can use to get around to at least change different dialects of the same language.
How to Change Voice on Google Translate?
While Google Translate doesn’t allow you to switch between voices just yet, it might roll out this feature in the future.
On the other hand, you can translate between different accents of the same language and translate your voice to text between two languages simultaneously.
- Open the Translate app.
- Tap your profile icon in the top-right corner.
- Then, tap on Settings.
- Under the Voice section, select Region and choose one according to your preferences.
- Launch the Google Translate app.
- Tap Settings at the bottom and select Speech region under the Voice section.
- Select a language and choose a different dialect for it available on the list.
On a Browser
Unfortunately, you have limited options when using Google Translate on the web. You can only translate your voice, input text, and other texts from a webpage.
Currently, there aren’t any settings available to change the voice or choose different dialects.
