Most of you are probably aware of Google’s translation services that they offer found at, but did you know that you can also use their search bar to translate single words? It’s a fairly new feature, and it’s simple to use.

All you have to do:

  1. Go to
  2. In the search box type “translate” followed by the word you want translated and the language you want it translated into. For example: “translate cat into Spanish”
  3. Your results appear

The result I receive when entering the above example is shown below:

Keep in mind that this works only for single words. If you have a phrase or a paragraph that needs translating, you’ll still need to use Google’s full Translate service. Also, in our trials we translated english words to another language like Spanish or French. We do not know how well it works when you start in a language other than English.
