Languages Supported in Google Translate

The multilingual chat program in Google Sheets internally uses the Language App service to perform the translation. When a user enters any text, the onEdit() method is triggered which performs the translation and updates the sheet.

You can also use the GoogleTranslate() formula to perform inline language translations without using Google Apps Script. And you can perform translation in all languages that are supported by Google Translate.
