Expanded language support for captions and translated captions in Google Meet

Expanded language support for captions and translated captions in Google Meet

What’s changing 

In January 2022, we announced the general availability of translated captions in Google Meet. Translated captions provide real-time translations of the speaker's language, helping to make meetings more inclusive and collaborative for meeting participants. 
We’re expanding on this feature and beginning today, you can: 
  • Translate English calls into Japanese, Mandarin (simplified), and Swedish 
  • Translate French, German, Portuguese, and Spanish calls into English 
Additionally, standard captions are now available in Japanese, Russian, Italian, Korean, Dutch, Portuguese, Mandarin (traditional). Visit the Help Center for a complete list of available languages. 
Some languages will include a “Beta” tag as we continue to optimize performance and introduce additional languages over time. We will continue to provide updates on the Workspace Updates blog as more languages become available.
