Not every website supports multiple languages, and we often need the translators for that. We often land on some of the webpages with our required information but in a different language. While the ‘Google Translate Website’ is the most commonly used online tool for translation – we have to copy and paste the content to translate it – which is not practically possible for the entire webpage.
Translating a few sentences or a paragraph is different from translating the entire web page. In this post, we will learn how to translate a web page in different web browsers.
Translate webpage in Chrome
It is the easiest and quickest in Google Chrome actually. You can translate the entire webpage without hitting many buttons. You just need to adjust the Settings a bit and you are done.
- Click on the three dots on the upper right corner of your browser.
- Go to Settingsà scroll down and click on ‘Advanced Settings’ tab.
- Scroll down and go to Languages and click on your selected Language.
- You will see a tab saying ‘Offer to translate pages that aren’t in a language you read.’
- Hit the button to the right and turn it ON and you are done. Now every time you land on a webpage with a foreign language, Google will offer you the translate option, and you can translate the entire webpage in just one click.
- Go to the webpage you want to translate, right click and select Translate to English (or your selected language).
Translate a webpage in Firefox
Firefox has no translation feature by default. You can, however, add the number of languages you want to. To add a new language-
- Click on the menu button on the top right corner of your browser
- Go to Preferences and click on ‘Choose in the Language and Appearance section’.
- Select any language you want and click OK.
For translation in Firefox, you have to install the Firefox Translation extensions. Some of the most popularly used add-ons are GoogleTranslatorforFirefox or ToGoogleTranslate.
Translate a web page in Edge
Microsoft Edge also doesn’t have any auto-translate feature, and you have to use the extensions for the same. You can download the Translator for Microsoft Edge from Microsoft Store. It lets you translate the webpages in 60 different languages. Just download and install the tool and you will see the icon on the top right corner of your browser. Open the webpage you want to translate and click on the icon, that’s it. You can select your preferred language and set the tool to translate every webpage you visit. If not the entire webpage, you can also select the text you want to translate and use the tool to translate.
While English is the most commonly used language worldwide, there is a huge percentage of users who prefer reading web content in their native language. The ways mentioned above can help you read the desired web content in your own preferred language.
