Chrome Browser 

By default, Chrome offers to translate pages written in a language you don't understand.


When you come across a page written in a language you don't understand, you can use Chrome to translate the page.

  1. On your computer, open Chrome.
  2. Go to a web page written in another language.
  3. On the right of the address bar, click Translate .
  4. Click on your preferred language.
  5. Chrome will translate your current web page.


Is it not working? 

  1. Try refreshing the web page.
  2. If it's still not working, right-click anywhere on the page and click Translate to [Language].


Firefox Browser

With the help of the Firefox extension FoxLingo, you can configure your browser to translate websites automatically. The extension supports translation for 75 languages. When the automatic translation is enabled in FoxLingo, pages you visit that are in a foreign language will be automatically displayed in your native language.

  1. Click the Firefox menu button, and select Add-ons.
  2. Type FoxLingo in the search box, and then press Enter.
  3. Click Install, and then restart Firefox to activate the extension.
  4. Click "Next" to install FoxLingo using the default settings.
    • FoxLingo will be accessible from the FoxLingo toolbar and the Firefox context menu.
    • You can turn off the toolbar or context menu display by clicking the check box beside those options.
    • You can change the default translation language by selecting your preferred language from the drop-down menu.


Edge Browser 

If you open a page written in a different language than your preferred language in settings, Microsoft Edge will automatically prompt you to translate it.


The Translate icon Translatorappears in the address bar when you go to a web page that’s written in a foreign language. A language is considered foreign to you if it's not included in your Preferred languages list in Settings. To add or remove languages from the list, in Microsoft Edge, go to Settings and more > Settings > Languages.


  1.  Open a webpage in Microsoft Edge. The browser will detect the language of the page, and a menu will appear asking you to confirm that you want to translate the page.
  2. Do any of the following:

  • In the Translate to dropdown, choose the language you want the page translated into. The default is the language you've set for Microsoft Edge.
  • To translate the page, click Translate.
  • To always automatically translate from the source language, select the Always translate from [Language] check box.
  • To skip translation, in the list on the lower right, select Not now to skip translation or Never translate [Language] to never have the panel appear when you go to a page using that language.
  1. Inside the address bar, you'll briefly see the status showing that the page has been translated.
