Translate your text

This component helps you test your designs in other languages. It’s a simple text layer that uses the Google Translate API to convert your strings into Russian, Japanes, or German. After ~20 uses, Google will rate limit your IP address and you’ll need to go to the Google Cloud Console and generate an API Key. Google gives new users $300 of free credit which will cover the translation of ~10,000,000 lines of text.

Give it a try and let me know what you think on Twitter –> @zach__johnston


Drag the text layer into your design and enter the text into the first field. It doesn’t work exactly like a text field (bummer) but I’ve tried to mimick the property panel as closely as possible.


Once you hit the limit of free API calls, you’ll need to follow these steps to get your own Google Cloud API key. If you have trouble, hit me up and I’ll share my API Key with you.
