Cheating using Google translate on Duolingo?
I had a student that supposedly clicked on Google translate to automatically translate the Spanish phrases for her... So instead of Spanish phrases showing on word box it was all in English. Then she could not undo it. When she saw that I was walking by checking their work she said that she just clicked something and it turned into english. Can someone please explain how this could happen and how do we fix the problem? Thank you. Jeanette
This sounds like a built-in browser feature, rather than an issue with Duolingo. If you're using Google Chrome for instance, it will automatically offer to translate pages that aren't in your "normal" language. This page has some instructions for how to access and configure those settings (I assume the student followed the process shown in the embedded video to make the page translate initially).
Hi! I am not sure I understand the problem. Did she change her Duolingo interface to English (if so, from which language)? There are instructions of how to change the Duolingo language back in the Duolingo help page. I am not sure I understand how Google comes into the picture. When you say "turned it into English", what do you mean? Please explain what the issue is currently so we can try to fix it! Sorry I couldn't be of more help. :|
I think youre talking about Google chrome's auto-translating system. to undo this just go to settings then you scroll it down to "languages" and it'll be like
Just uncheck the box "offer to translate pages that aren't in a language you read"
Hope I helped you
