The Google Translate extension will allow you to view numerous languages easily as you browse the web. Simply highlight or right-click on a portion of text and then click on Translate icon next to it to translate it to the language that you need. If you want to translate the entire page you are visiting, then Google Translate can also accomplish that; just click the translate icon on the browser toolbar.
This powerful extension will also automatically detect if the language of a page you are visiting is different from the language you are using for your Google Chrome interface. If this is the case, then a small banner will appear at the top of the page. Simply click the Translate button in the banner and all the text on the page will appear in the new language.
Key features include:
- 42 languages supported.
- Rapid translation time.
- Automatically translate pages.
Google Translate supports a variety of different languages and although it works with some languages better than others, generally speaking, it is a quick and easy way to translate the information you need.
Overall, Google Translate is a well built extension for the Chrome browser. It has a sleek looking menu and has a few useful features, such as the ability to set it to automatically translate Web pages not in your default language without prompting. As you would expect from Google, this is a quality extension that works very well. It isn't perfect though, and some languages are translated better than others, but overall Google Translate is still the best translation extension tool available to date.
