Get Google Chrome-Like On-Page Translation In Firefox

If you are Google Chrome user, you're likely aware that it comes with a default translation feature that automatically prompts you to translate a page when it detects you are on website not in the language set as default in your web browser. It’s a really neat feature that can prove extremely useful if you often visit foreign sites. Firefox, however, doesn't come with such a feature by default. However, there are several add-ons available for Mozilla's browser that you can use to easily translate foreign text to your own language without having to manually copy and paste the text into Google Translate or some other translation service. S3.Google Translator is one such extension that does the job perfectly, though the translation has to be initiated manually by you the first time you visit a foreign page. Read More

Quickly Translate An Entire Webpage From Firefox Right Click Menu

Chrome users have it made; whenever you find yourself on a webpage in a language that isn’t your default, the browser automatically offers to translate. But Firefox users, while they don’t enjoy an inbuilt translate option, needn’t fret about copy-pasting entire paragraphs to a translation web service, either. Using the right-click context menu, you can translate either selected text via Translate Menu or, better yet, the whole page, via the TranslateWebpageAtGoogle add-on. Read More

Learn A New Language As You Browse The Web [Chrome]

Learning a new language is not an easy job, and can require a lot of effort. However, Language Immersion For Chrome aims to change that by providing you with a very easy and simple way to learn new words/phrases from a foreign language, as you browse the web. This nifty little extension switches certain words and phrases from English to a language of your choice on regular websites that you browse, letting you experience the language with a different perspective. With it, you can choose from a collection of sixty four languages currently supported by Google Translate. Novice, Intermediate and Fluent level settings control how much of the page is translated. For instance, when you select Fluent, entire sentences are translated, whereas the Novice option only translates a few phrases. Additionally, scrolling over a translated word or phrase lets you hear the pronunciation, and clicking the translation turns it back to English. More after the jump. Read More

Translate Menu: Translate Webpages & Terms via Right-Click Context Menu [Firefox]

Firefox is truly feature rich and while people who use other browsers will argue otherwise, it’s hard to deny that this browser isn’t good or that developers prefer it over most other browsers. While the browser is great, it’s ‘differentiated’ from others by the excess or lack of a few features. In Chrome, if you visit a webpage that isn’t in your local language, it automatically asks you if you want to translate it and works with Google Translate to give you a hint of what the page is about. Firefox does not have a translate option. Translate Menu, a Firefox add-on, translates text that you select to almost any other language. It supports a very large number of languages, which means people of different origins can use this add-on for a better browsing experience. Just select the Translate This Page option from the right-click context menu. With this add-on, you don’t have to copy and paste the text or link to any other website, such as Google Translate.

Translate Text From Any Application With Transmiti

Translating documents from desktop applications is always a bit difficult due to inadequate translating resources provided (if at all) by applications, such as, text editors and word processors. For instance, MS Word does not provide translation options for more than a handful of languages. Other commonly used applications, such as, WordPad don’t even come close to have a translation option, entirely. While Google Translate is immensely powerful, it's still far from the usage scenario I'm referring to here. Transmiti is a Google Powered portable application which is capable of translating text from any application, including text editors, browsers with no native translation support (e.g. Firefox and Opera), Messengers, etc. It can translate selected text or entire documents using a hotkey. You can either copy the translation to clipboard or replace the current text with the translation (if applicable). Transmiti supports translations to and from all languages supported by Google Translate. Transmiti is quite similar to the previously reviewed Linguarde, however unlike Linguarde, the pop-up window contaning the translation is quite stable and does not vanish unless you close it manually.
