Translate a webpage in Safari on Mac
Safari interprets each webpage you visit to discover its language. This decision is made entirely on your device. If the webpage can be translated to any of your favored languages, you can decide to translate it. If you translate, Safari will send the webpage’s contents to Apple’s servers for translation.
If the web page was not viewed in Private Browsing mode, Safari will also send its address to Apple. Apple will store the address for up to 5 years to improve Apple’s products, services, and technologies. Apple does not store the contents of webpages you translate.
How To Translate a webpage in Safari on Mac
- In the Safari app on your Mac, go to the webpage you want to translate.
- If the webpage can be translated, the Smart Search field displays the Translate button.
- Click the Translate button, then choose a language.
- If you think the translation might need improvement, click the Translate button, then choose Report Translation Issue. The translation is sent to Apple for review.
You may be able to make more languages available in the Translate menu by adding the languages in Language & Region preferences. Once you add a language to your list of preferred languages, it will appear in the Translate menu in Safari if a translation is available to that language.
