Translate selected text with Google Translate

This extension allows you to translate the text selection using Google Translate whenever you want.

When the extension is installed select some text from a website, right click and select to which language you want to translate the selected text.

** FAQ: **
Q: Why choose this extension and not another one?
A: I designed this extension so that it didn't prompt the user for permissions. This way the final user knows that the extension doesn't have the permission to access the content of web pages and monitor the user activity on the Internet (other extensions of this type prompt for this permission). This extension has access only to the content of the selected text when the user clicks the extension context menu and it is used to create a Google Translate app with the text autocompleted.

You can configure from the options page which languages you want to show in the context menu.

** Open Source **
This extension is now open sourced! You can check out the source code, contribute, and fill in bugs in the GitHub repository:

** Beta version**
As this extension has so many users I've decided to upload a Beta version of the extension to the Chrome Web Store so I can test it before uploading any update to the stable version! This way I can make sure the stable version of the extension is 100% bug-free.

If you want to test the bleeding edge of this extension before everybody else, join the Google Group and download the extension (there may be bugs, you've been warned):

Solo es un acceso directo a Google Traductor, que mal! no trabajaron nada en esta extensión

avatar Gino Saurré T.

La idea es buena, pero en la pestaña abierta con la traduccion, sale el lenguaje detectado (por ejemplo aleman) y la traducción es al mismo lenguale (ej. aleman) lo que hace que tengamos que hacer clic en el lenguaje objetivo (en mi caso español)... podría tener un lenguaje target por defecto (ej. el lenguaje de chrome por defecto)

Just need the translation on the page, no popup or tab. Its possible in Edge, Im sure it can be done!

Thank you for making this privacy-focused extension versus the other translate extensions that are available. It works great and I wish more of the negative reviewers here understood that compromises were made deliberately to achieve the goal of requiring the minimum amount of permissions, which I really appreciate!
