Any way to get automatic page translation?



  • Chrome has a feature that automatically translates the page. Since it's built in, it doesn't seem to be available as an extension. Anyone know how I can achieve automatic translation of whole pages? I can live with a solution that is not fully automated (requires me to press a button)



  • Bump.. :-/



  • I was looking for something similiar. It's a bit tricky, and google translate extension works only with single words and not web pages (In Vivaldi at least).
    The best thing I found, is to use this link and put the page which must be translated.



  • I see the topic is old, but maybe it'll be helpful: extension "Google Translate" adds a button to the address bar, and this button has an option "Translate this page".

    @thomcat If I remember rightly it is about licensing issues. Vivaldi would have to pay to include this.

    The simplest solution is to add a web panel for translation, and copy/paste text into that.

    Bing Translate will accept a URL of the page, and opens the translated page in a new tab.

    The use of Google translation API/Cloud is not without costs. See for private use and for commercial

    IMHO: I wont let Vivaldi Technologies to pay for services i do not want to use.

    I use a extension or vivsit a translation page to get such translation.



  • Chrome has its Google translator, you can have it easy being from the same company.
    But Google translate is not always the best translator.
    I use an extension called Im Translate, which brings together Google translators, Bing and one of their own. Allows from the contextual menu to translate words, texts or the whole page, incorporates a dictionary with voice and also to translate text of the own language to any other from the icon of the extension

  • Not really helping along the topic, but if you visit DeepL you get a translator which gets better results than G translate and is independent of Google (for those who care...).

    Results may vary depending on the language; an article on anaesthetics was translated so well it might have been published just so...

    Wrong link, Error 418 404 :/
    It's https://www.deepl.com/translator



  • Shame on me for not testing the link :(



  • Chrome-like auto in-place translation would be great but yeah could be costly for Vivaldi so understandable.

    The one thing I pretty much have to use Chrome for as I browse a lot of sites regularly in another language. So much more convenient not having to reload pages all the time and the words just get displayed in English like magic on Chrome.
