I need to turn it off then in the browser settings (occurs in chrome, not always in Opera) to see extension loaded. Is it known issue? Is there any workaround?
  • (2022-07-13) Vishal Saini: the listening feature does not work,but from today the listening feature with shortcut key ( Alt + L , Shift + Alt + L ) is not working and even letter L under the speaking symbol is not there that was previously . hope soon this will fix because it really help in learning other language pronunciation .
  • (2022-07-12) Samuel Geyser: Absolutely useful extension; but it seems that a recent chrome update has rendered the keyboard shortcuts for listening to the current translation in both the source and target language - i.e. shortcuts 'Alt+L' and 'Alt+Shift+L'. Annotations beside each listen icon are absent, too. Many thanks, anyway! Appreciate this extension greatly.

  • (2021-12-14, v: Luca Marconato: Make bigger numbers or increase color contrast
    Hi, great extension, I use it everyday. When using a large screen I find the numbers suggesting the languages, like English (1), German (2), etc. too small. Also with some color profiles the contrast between the light gray they have and the white of the page makes it difficult to me to instantly see the value of a number. Is there a way to make it bigger without having to enlarge the rest of the UI? Alternatively, changing the color to dark gray/black would also fix the readability for me. Thank you!
  • (2021-08-22, v: Bulent Erdemir: Yandex translator version

  • (2020-11-26, v: Ryosuke Yamaji: from the developer 11/26
    The latest version was released a few days ago. Is there anyone who is not working with this version? If you are, please try the following steps. 1. Reset the extension's key settings. - Open the extension's options page and press the [reset settings] button. 2. Super reload the Google Translate page. - Press Ctrl+Shift+R on the Google Translate page.
  • (2020-11-17, v: Ryosuke Yamaji: From the developer 11/17
    Hi there. I'm the developer of this extension. I was able to figure out the situation. There seems to be more than one UI for the Google Translate page at the moment. (At least 2 patterns.) The UI (html, css) provided by the server seems to be different depending on user, country, language, domain, etc. Because of this, the extension doesn't work on the environment of users who are provided with the old UI. I'm working on how to deal with it, so please be patient.
  • (2020-11-13, v: Hayk Avetisyan: Extension is not working

  • (2020-11-06, v: Sandro Tepedino: Keep it up! Better expansion in the world!
    Ohhhh, I am feeling so uncomfortable using the Google Translate without the shortcuts. Fortunately, it seems that the developer is working on a fix already. Yuuuup!! I hope that the developer doesn't forget about Mozzila Firefox, the extension also stopped work on there.
  • (2020-11-04, v: S.M.H.M: A problem running this plugin
    Hi In the morning just as I opened google translate I learned shortcuts didn't work. I removed the plugin and reinstalled it then restarted my computer but it's still missing. I checked the extensions and it's still running there and is active but It doesn't work. I'll be grateful if you can help. Thanks,
  • (2020-10-27, v: Wen Yuan Lo: To be revised after google translate update
    Hi, many thank for great extension. I found it couldn't use yesterday. It seem that Google update their google translate interface, lead the extension could show normally. I really appreciate any comment or help for the situation. The extension help me a lot.
  • (2020-02-19, v: David Stafford: Extension, seemingly no longer working after the update :(
    The extension is seemingly no longer working as of today, as none of the alt keys respond
  • (2019-12-22, v: CursedBM81: I'm confused (I'm very new to this)
    I don't understand how to activate the translator.
  • (2019-09-16, v: fra yo: modify translation
    Could you add a shortcut to modify the translation. it is one of the few buttons that doesn't have a shortcut. thank you and have a great day!

  • (2019-05-26, v: Bulent Erdemir: URL redirect to look up the word in another online dictionary (mainly for determining Articles)
    Hi, This is a very useful extension. Thank you very much. I'd like to propose a feature. Google Translate would not specifiy the Artikel of the German Nouns so I have to go to dict.cc every time to figure out what the Artikel is. It's be useful to add a feature, which opens a new tab with a custom URL tied to a shortcut key. The URL would be programmable and we'd then construct a url like: https://www.dict.cc/?s=Nachricht Here, we're telling dict.cc to look up the word Nachricht. Regards, Bulent
  • (2019-02-17, v: Failure
    It doesnt work at all. I was looking for listening shortcut but I have failed. It seems nothing work. It would be very helpful have such shortcut.
  • (2018-12-21, v: Andy Tzeng: Alt+C and Alt+I must be refreshed?
    After pasting context to translation, "Alt+C" and "Alt+I" don't show automatically. But after pressing "F5", then they show up. I would appreciate it if you could fix this problem.
  • (2018-12-09, v: David Nunes: One shortcut not working now
    After the last Google Translate update, the shortcut for "listen the translation"[Pivot + S] is no longer working.
  • (2018-12-01, v: Silver Zachara: Little UI improvements
    Hi, I reloaded google translate now and see that you updated your extension, thank you, your fix was superb and super fast. I want to propose some changes, text is too large, can you make it smaller? Second thing is I want to ask you, if you can wrap it in span tag with some class, so I can customize a look by myself ( i'm using Tampermonkey extension for this purposes ). Thank you for reply.
  • (2018-11-30, v: Arif Billah: Add the option to remove shortcut markers
    Please add the option to remove shortcut markers from the UI. It diminishes the beauty of the new translate UI. Thank you.
  • (2018-11-29, v: Arif Billah: New Google Translate UI. Please update the extension.
    Google seems to have updated their Translate user interface. The extension does not work any more. Please update the extension making it compatible with the new Translate interface.
  • (2018-11-29, v: Magnus Sullivan: Update needed for new Google Translate
    Google has changed the layout of Translate so the extension doesn't work anymore. I hope you will be able to update it so that it works because I love this tool. Thanks
