Best Translator Chrome Extensions For A Next Level Browsing Experience

Best Translator Chrome Extension

More often than not we encounter something or the other on the internet, that is not in our native language and is tough to comprehend. For instance, you might visit a Japanese website to purchase a Favicon or head to a French website and read an article to know more about what is going on at a relative’s hometown. Irrespective of the reason, having a translation tool handy can facilitate better understanding and is more time-saving compared to flipping through the pages through a dictionary or language guide. 

Chrome has its own Google Translate extension that offers basic translation and can suffice for many individuals who do not require much translation in their day-to-day lives. When you open a web page on Chrome in a language that is different from the one spoken in your current location, a pop-up window gets displayed on the screen that offers to translate the page. In case you do not see the pop-up option, right click anywhere on the page and you will see a list of options displayed on the screen. Locate the “translate the page” option and left-click on it. This will open the Google Translate window. Google translate supports 53 languages and seamlessly integrates into the Chrome browser. 

The extension allows the users to hear pronunciations which can be very useful when learning a new language. In addition to this, the tool also offers to translate highlighted text on a web page. Google Translate, however, is not completely accurate when it comes to translating legal documents. Also, the tool has difficulty translating non-traditional language in web pages.
