Errors in Translating a Langague on Google Pixel Buds

Even though this language translating feature on Google Pixel Buds is useful for communication in a foreign language, there are many improvements needed to minimize the errors. Hence, here are some points to make your translation with the least errors:

  • The Google Translate app cannot distinguish between the accents that can give you errors often. Hence, we recommend having a conversation without slang or complex words while using the software.
  • You need a stable internet connection for the software to run smoothly.
  • Make sure the sentences are short and crisp as Google Translate becomes less accurate when translating long sentences or paragraphs.
  • Use the translator in a silent place away from disturbances to prevent any misinterpretation.

With these points, you should have the least problems using the language translation on Google Pixel Buds. Also, don’t forget to check out our other guides on How to fix and pair Both Google Pixel Buds or How to turn off Google Assistant.
