Translate Locally

Translate Locally is a desktop application for text translation. Unlike cloud providers, all processing is performed locally and your text remains privately on your computer.

The software is available for Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, Arch Linux, Windows, Mac, and open source. The pre-built binaries currently assume 64-bit x86 with AVX or newer.




Report issues or contact us. Please make sure you have the latest version of the software.
