When you come across a page written in a language that you don’t understand, you can use Chrome to translate the page. It however doesn’t allow users to select and translate just the selected text you want. Instead it simply translate the entire page you’re visiting. If you want to highlight and translate only those selected text in the browser, you can use Google Translate extension for Chrome. Note that this is different from the Google Translate web service which requires users to copy and paste text to the online translator every time.
Google Translate Chrome Extension provides us a more simple way for inline translations of text. It allows us to quickly translate parts of the content we need, such as words, phrases or even menu items. Add this extension to your Chrome web browser, you can then select, highlight any text on page to translate into the language you prefer and display the translation in pop-up dialog.
You can set your language in extension options or settings. Translator will detect the language of the site you’re on by itself. Just select or highlight any text or snippets of text, this free translation extension will automatically translate them to your language in Chrome browser. Pronunciation is also provided so you can listen to the proper pronunciation of translated words and phrases.
