Quickly and easily translate websites via Google Translate using a bookmarkletSeptember 1, 2011 32 Email article | Print article
One of the advantages of Google Toolbar is the ability to quickly and easily translate websites using Google Translate. The only problem is most of us despise toolbars (including me) and refuse to install any – from Google or other sources – on our computers. Yet, with the Internet connecting people from all around the world, most of us have probably stumbled upon a non-English website and probably make use of Google Translate to get past that language barrier. So, what would you give me if I told you that you could enjoy the convenience of Google Toolbar’s integration with Google Translate without having to install or use Google Toolbar? (I have always wanted a pretty pink pony; just kidding.)
Translate is a bookmarklet that allows you to quickly and easily use Google Translate to translate websites:
All languages supported by Google Translate are available for you to select to translate to:
To get Translate, click + drag [Translate] to your bookmarks bar if you are using Firefox, Chrome, or Opera, or if you are using Internet Explorer, right click [Translate], select “Add to Favorites…”, select “Favorites Bar” for “Create in”, and click “Add”.
