We, the Chinese Google Translate users, hereby request Google China to re-enable the Google Translate service in mainland China.

  • What happened?

On September 29, 2022, Google China shut down the Google Translate service on translate.google.cn. (https://techcrunch.com/2022/09/30/google-appears-t...)

  • What are the reasons and implications?

As we all know, since 2010, Google's services in mainland China have been shut down one after another. This is mainly because some of the services provided by Google contain content that is sensitive or violates the laws of the mainland China, such as Google Search, Google Maps, YouTube and so on. But Google Translate is different. Google Translate is almost (or even completely) free of sensitive content. Due to the high accuracy and ease of use of Google Translate, many people in mainland China still use Google Translate today. They include Chinese Chrome users. According to StatCounter, Chrome is number one in mainland China with a market share of 44.14%. Google Translate integrated in Chrome is also not available due to Google Translate being shut down. This is a great trouble for users in mainland China.

  • What are our needs?

Re-enable the translation service on translate.google.cn.
