  • (2019-05-26) Bulent Erdemir: 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

  • (2020-11-26, v: Ryosuke Yamaji: from the developer 11/26

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.

  • (2020-11-06, 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.

  • (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.

  • (2018-12-01, 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
