Translator to English does translations with a Right Click[Firefox]

Many a times we come across news posts and other articles that are written in some other language but English. Times like this, we normally use Google Translation to get the article translated to English, which to be honest, takes some time. What if you could do it say 3 seconds and no heading over to Google Translate and stuff.

If you’re on Google Chrome, the browser will automatically detect the language and ask whether you’d want to translate it. That’s not the case with Mozilla Firefox. Here’s a useful addon for Firefox that lets you translate any page to English with only a Right Click. It’s called Translator to English. The addon works like a charm and can translate almost any given language to English and it’s super simple to use this addon.

After downloading and installing Translator to English, head over to any page that is not in your native language. Now select the text that you want to translate to English and Right Click to open the context menu. Click on the option Translate Selection to see the magic happen. Sometimes, if you select a huge paragraph the text may not be translated, so it’s preferable to select 2-3 lines for translation. You can see in the screenshots below how accurate the translation is;

The text that you select gets translated on the same page, no refreshes or anything of that sort required. It’s fast, simple and fairly accurate. When I say accurate, I mean you’ll easily understand what the Chinese or German text you wanted to translate means in English. The sentences and grammar will obviously be messed up, so it’s your job to make it clear and understandable.

You can download the Translate to English Firefox addon from over here.
