Leveraging the same power as Google’s website-based translation service, the Google Translate extension cuts out the linguistic middle man by translating whatever page you’re currently viewing into the language of your choice. Once installed, all users need do to translate a page is click the icon and wait. In under a minute you’ll be reading the best english Google’s translation algorithm can afford.
While the extension's default language is set to English, there’s nothing stopping users from switching it up to any of the other language options offered by Google. Want an American English language newspaper translated into Welsh? By tinkering with the extension's settings, making the linguistic leap takes nothing more than the a single mouse click.
