Right-click to translate selected text

With the new translation feature in Vivaldi 4.0, it would be great to extend it to on-demand translation of selected text.
For example, I use the Google Translate extension which allows me to select any text on a page and translate it without leaving the page.
It would be great to have this as a native feature in Vivaldi!
Here a Google translate button appears when you select text to translate. I would love to see an option in Vivaldi to display either a button, or a "Translate Text" entry in the context menu after selecting text.
And here is the inline translation after clicking the button:

Would definitely like to see this. It was the first thing I noticed the lack of when I disabled the google translation extension.
I love the full page translation but the on-demand translation of highlighted text is essential because one often stumbles upon a random sentence or two in another language(s) rather than a full webpage in another language entirely.
