Why doesn’t Google Translate offer a change of gender of the voice?

Although Google has not been very specific as to why there is no option to change the voice to either male or female, the best guess would be that it is due to the fact that the Translator utilizes various modules of the program per language. These modules are only recorded in one language by either a male or a female in a professional studio, sometimes for hours. Recording the same module in both a male and a female voice is not only highly time-consuming but also makes little sense from a financial aspect. Therefore Google Translate offers translation in either male or female voice.

It is an obvious guess that since you can not change the gender of the voice, you can not change the accent either. It is no hard and fast rule since other translators such as Siri do provide accents to promote diversity, but Google has also not yet incorporated accent-specific voices.

What you can do instead is hear different standard country accents in Google Translate by using the speaker icons in different Google country domain sites. In some cases, it was seen that even after using the accent marks, the pronunciation wasn’t correct.

The plus point is that you can change the gender voice and accent-specific voices in Google Translate’s Android version on your phone’s OS and Google Assistant, where you get multiple accents to choose from – you can choose between male and female voice for any language too.

In Google Translate, there are certain languages like Arabic, Bengali, Italian, Chinese, Danish, Dutch, and English (Australia), which are available in male voices. To find out which languages have a male voice in Google Translate, here is what you can do:

  • Visit
  • Enter the text or phrase that you want to translate
  • Then click on the drop-down arrow in the right field and select the language in which you want your text to be translated
  • On the box to the right of the screen that is the space for translated text, Google Translate will automatically generate a translation.
  • Now click on the speaker icon to hear the translation spoken.
  • To hear a different voice speaking in translation, you just have to change the language from the drop-down arrow and click on the speaker icon again.
  • This way, you can find which languages are spoken in which gender by default on Google Translate.
