Add-ons for translating the web browser

Users need to browse in their own language, which means it is essential to translate the browser. Not all the websites we browse have their content translated; which is why add-ons are indispensable for understanding their content. The ideal thing is to translate your website so that your audience can access it in the language that is most convenient for them. Today we'll look at the most popular web translator add-ons that you can install in your web browser.

5 add-ons for translating a web browser

Below we describe 5 add-ons for translating a web browser:

Google Translate

Most web browsers come with a Google Translate service. If you are browsing a website in another language and a translation is available, the Chrome web browser will display an icon in the address bar that will allow you to translate the page instantly.

To set up more than one language, click on the option “"Manage languages"” where you can set up specific languages and add or delete the languages in which you want to translate the content.

S3 Translator

Google Translate also uses the S3 Translator add-on. The add-on supports translation of selected text, words or whole pages into over 100 languages. This add-on is available for Firefox and Chrome.

Many translation add-ons can be integrated into web browsers, but they all have the same problem: when translating content, the format of the selected text is lost. In this case S3 Translator retains the HTML formatting of web pages.

Reverso Context

Another practical translation tool integrated in the web browser is Reverso Context. When you select a word or a sentence, the result of the search will be shown in the selected target language together with synonyms according to the context.

The add-on is available for Firefox and Chrome and supports several languages: English, French, Italian, Russian, German, Portuguese, Arabic, Dutch, Hebrew and Polish.


Rememberry is available for Google Chrome and you only have to select the word for it to be translated. When you select it, you can set up the target language and translation alternatives are displayed. More than 100 languages are supported.

XTranslate for translating the browser

Also for Chrome and Opera, XTranslate combines the Google, Yandex and Bing translators to offer translations of words or entire websites in more than 100 languages.

Just select the word you want to translate and right click to translate it, or you can translate the whole website into any language you like. You can customise the target language from the icon on the address bar.

If you want to make sure that your website visitors don't encounter this problem when they browse your website, you should use a website translation service that offers a solution designed specifically to meet your needs. At ATLS, we translate websites from any CMS and into any language. Shall we talk?
