Translate is a Slack translation app to translate Slack messages in any language. Here it adds an option in the right-click menu of the messages that a user can use to translate that in any language. This is simple and you can translate any message in any channel or direct chat with any teammate. However, the app has a free tier and in that free tier, you are only allowed to translate 50000 characters in a month. This is kinda good for small teams and organizations and it is a very straightforward app as well. You just need to set a target language to translate messages and then just invoke it anytime.
After connecting the Slack workspace, you can call it from anywhere. I have already mentioned the limitations of the free plan and if you want more translation quota then you will have to upgrade to the paid tier. Having a translation app is necessary as sometimes you get remote teammates from a different location. And to properly communicate with them, you need to translate some of their messages. Since doing this manually is a time-consuming job, you can rely on the app I have mentioned here. Just call it whenever you want to translate an app.
