Translate selected text with Google Translate

Image from store Translate Selected Text
Description from store 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: https://github.com/avm99963/translateselectedtext ** Bugs ** Please, report any bugs or feature suggestions here: https://github.com/avm99963/translateselectedtext/issues ** Note ** Google Translate is a trademark of Google Inc. Use of this trademark is subject to Google Permissions. ** 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): * Google Group: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/gtranslator-beta * Translate Selected Text (Beta): https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/translate-selected-text-b/pckjhlclhnnhdadoockkhgfkceeljnkg ** Changelog ** Changelog available in the following website: https://github.com/avm99963/translateselectedtext/wiki/Changelog ** Credits ** https://github.com/avm99963/translateselectedtext/wiki/Credits

  • (2023-09-28) Ali Bakhtafarid: Excellent!
  • (2023-08-10) Günther Bosch: Hi, Translate and Paste in one step would be great. Or at least Translate and Copy to Clipboard. Would make it easier to translate many text snippets when they are separated by images, table cells, ...
  • (2023-08-03) David N.: Justo lo que buscaba, un traductor que no pida permiso para leer y modificar los datos de las páginas.
  • (2023-07-10) M. A.A.: Używam już od dłuższego czasu ,wg. mnie to najlepszy szybki tłumacz zaznaczonych tekstów . Jest szybki i lekki i działa też na stronach które normalnie są z działania takich tłumaczy wyłączone np. w tym sklepie.
  • (2023-07-05) Jakob F: One has to wade through such garbage to occasionally chance upon something worth while, and this is the best application of its kind.
  • (2022-12-20) Dmitrij Nikonov: спасибо
  • (2022-10-31) Roger Campanera: A customizable shortcut would make this extension complete.
  • (2022-09-27) Степан Константинов: Идеально выполняет свою работу. Разрабу спасибо!
  • (2022-05-27) Checker Pig: Noch nicht mal die Einstellungen funktionieren.
  • (2022-02-15) Jose L. Castillo Olivera: Solo es un acceso directo a Google Traductor, que mal! no trabajaron nada en esta extensión
  • (2021-12-28) 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)
  • (2021-12-15) Fernando Quiñonez: eselete
  • (2021-09-30) Tj Gonz: Just need the translation on the page, no popup or tab. Its possible in Edge, Im sure it can be done!
  • (2021-09-08) Niraj Sanghvi: 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!
  • (2021-07-28) Petter Nerman: Desperately needs a "translate text" option to be used in conjunction with the extension shortcuts at chrome://extensions/shortcuts, because as it stands now, you're forced to right click and scroll down to the translate option via the pop-up menu every time you want to translate something which simply isn't practical at all. With the addition I am suggesting you'd be able to translate at the press of a button. Not sure why this hasn't been added as it's an obvious improvement.
  • (2021-07-11) Muhammad Taqawi: Nice and simple extension
  • (2021-07-01) Ajay Meena: good yess
  • (2021-06-03) Roman: the best of translation. very convinient, when translation opens in new small window
  • (2021-05-21) Abed Asadi: Very good this program
  • (2021-05-20) Vedran Icanovic: Way to go if you want to bypass Google and third parties to spy on everything you visit on Web.
  • (2021-04-08) Tony Nguyen: It works great! Thanks. It'd be great if it could preserve newlines. I copy text with newlines and they are removed in the Google Translate window. Also, despite the option, it always opens in a new tab. What's the difference between this extension and Translate Selected 2, which has the same icon as well. Thanks.
  • (2021-03-03) Adrian: AWENSOME!!!!!!!!!!!
  • (2021-02-01) qwe qwe: love
  • (2020-12-14) Felice: Does exactly what I want. Copies the text and opens a google auto-translate tab with it. Some people want it to happen on the page itself, but that requires letting an extension read and modify any page you read, which is a scary thing to ask me for. Great compromise.
  • (2020-12-04) Alex Nits: Ok! 5+! :)
  • (2020-11-22) Dali Dali: I mean maan I don't need to translate a lot of text. Usually just 1-4 words.
  • (2020-10-30) JP W: Redirecting you to Google Translate is just pure lazy. I'll find a better extension that actually shows you the translation as a modal/the actual content overwritten. Disappointed.
  • (2020-10-25) Artem Symcov: На кой фиг мне нужен дублятор гугл перевода? оно должно сразу переводить во вспылающем окне, а не новой вкладке. Для кого вы пишите такую дичь?
  • (2020-06-28) Dragan Papic: Ovaj i ovakav dodatak mi je trebao,hvala.
  • (2019-12-10) Aboalfotooh Yemen WILD life: good
  • (2019-07-23) Diego Uribe: Muy útil con la opción de popup. Se podrá agregar la habilitación de un atajo para el teclado? Gracias!
  • (2019-03-14) Rogério Dec: It was working, but from some day ago, Google Translate is showing o lot of %20 instead of spaces: "I%20think%20is%20not%20showing"
  • (2019-02-22) Elisa B: Très bonne extension qui est améliorée pour ouvrir la traduction dans une boite de message. Facilite la traduction de deux langues dans les deux sens. Très bien !
  • (2019-02-08) jenny alvarado: bueno
  • (2019-02-03) rabah amarni: Bien
  • (2019-01-18) Lazara Maria Lima: ÓTIMO!!
  • (2018-10-20) Abdulsalam ALMIRE: use full
  • (2018-10-18) Emil Atanasov: Awesome
  • (2018-10-02) Mickaël Allonneau: Fonctionne ! Mais ouvre un nouvel onglet vers Google Traduction. > Works! But opens a new tab to Google Translate.
  • (2018-08-26) Legion: No different from Google translate, if fact it is Google Translate under another name. Tiresomely opens another tab simply to translate a couple of words that should be done on page, as Google Translator for Firefox does.
  • (2018-08-26) Magolo Golo: tendría que traducir cada vez que salen textos en otro idioma.
  • (2018-08-23) Zoltán Horváth: Csak megnyitja új ablakban a Translate-ot . Semmi popup ( lehet, hogy nem is ígértek ilyet, nem olvastam el a leírását )
  • (2018-08-20) vsh ulles: открывать новую вкладу это просто ужасно,мягко говоря,дерьмо.
  • (2018-08-10) Camilo Prieto: Abre Google Traductor y copia el texto que seleccionaste, efectivamente ahorrandote el tener que escribir una letra en una pestaña nueva.
  • (2018-08-06) windows20188 28193: Its So Good
  • (2018-07-31) Sarah Azevedo: SÓ TRADUZ PAGINA INTEIRA
  • (2018-07-20) Pablo Perez: De repente dejo de funcionar, lo reinstalé pero nada
  • (2018-07-05) Leandro: ridículo, mais fácil deixar uma aba do google translate aberta
  • (2018-06-28) rey hoffman: I am on a page that has multiple foreign languages. I right click on one of the lines of foreign text and a pop-up will appear saying that the page could not be translated. This extension name is 'translate selected text'. It automatically wants to translate the whole page, but that is not what I am wanting. This extension is not useful nor helpful. I have disabled it and now leaving this review and rating of one star and when I click 'PUBLISH', my next action will be to 'REMOVE' this extension.
  • (2018-06-24) Jeff Lewis: Awful doesn't translate selected text on page, just opens google translate

  • (2020-12-14, v:0.8.1) Felice: Newlines need to be encoded properly, and here's how to do it:
    Currently you're converting newlines in the selection into "%20" (space) when you construct the google translate url. You should instead convert them into "%0A" (linefeed, aka "\n" in most programming languages). If you do this, the extension won't turn multiple selected paragraphs into a wall of text in the translation window. Would you please make this change? :)
