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 web content. Today we'll look at the most popular web translator add-ons that you can install in your web browser.
Five add-ons for translating browser
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 “Languages” where you can set up specific languages and add or delete the languages in which you want to translate the content.
Google translate also uses the add-on S3 Translator. The add-on supports translation of selected text, entered phrase or whole webpage 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.
Another practical translator 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 makes the translation just by selecting the word that we want to translate. When we select it, we set up the target language and translation alternatives are displayed. More than 100 supported languages.
XTranslate for translating the browser
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.
