  • (2023-12-13) Easy Also: 好用,现在deepL的浏览器插件似乎需要pro账户了,这个插件作为替代方案已经不错了。
  • (2023-12-06) Primary: SUGGESTIONS! Please Add Options when "HOVER mouse Tooltip" it will automatically Translate. That's the easy way instead of *Highlighting AND click* the I con that's frustrating.
  • (2023-11-08) ALIN WANDERLUST: Simple and easy to use!
  • (2023-10-09) Роман Шамарин: Perfect. I'm sure I'm not using all the features of this extension. But the implementation of instant translation of selected text is great. Thank you.
  • (2023-09-27) Slava Lishnevsky: Excellent extension. I have been looking for this for a long time, the translator extension that works both ways between two languages. Just perfect, cant find any pittfals, absolutely love the "Show translation candidates" setting !! Good job, bro !! :)
  • (2023-09-20) Cliff Overwater: This used to be an excellent extension, but recently it has become an extremely annoying, obnoxious piece of spyware. It opens an extra tab Every Time I Open My Browser and Demands Money/"donations". Scuh-rooo you!
  • (2023-09-16) Michael: It's an amazing extension but lately it doesn't translate single words. If I choose a single word and click on the translate button, nothing happens. If it's two words or more, they get translated normally. It didn't have this issue previously.
  • (2023-09-14) Đức Minh: It's really awesome. I've been using it for years but it suddenly stop working. Hope it'll be fixed soon.
  • (2023-09-03) Anson Wang (Fontanez): Best translator addon, I need to leave this to keep myself finding it.
  • (2023-08-20) Sandro de Paula: Muito melhor que o Google Translate oficial, nesta Simple Translate você pode selecionar qualquer quantidade de texto e com um click já traduz. Uso no chrome, edge e firefox.
  • (2023-08-17) Muhammed Uğun: çok kullanışlı bir eklenti
  • (2023-08-09) 서연박: 이 확장 프로그램을 설치하면, 크롬 브라우저와 큰 차이 없이 번역 기능을 사용할 수 있어서 너무 좋네요. 제가 크롬을 애용하던 이유 중 하나가 번역 기능이었는데, 크롬 같은 경우 마우스 커서로 3문장 이상 하이라이팅해서 번역을 시도하려면...따로 번역 페이지를 켜야 한다는 게 참 번거로웠거든요. 그래서 보통 크롬에서는 1~2문장 정도만 커서로 잡아서 바로 번역 아이콘이 뜨게 하는 식으로 이용할 수밖에 없었습니다. 이게 엄청 번거로웠는데... 지금 이 확장 프로그램 설치하니까 진짜 좋은 게, 한 문단을 넘게 커서로 잡아도 쫙 번역이 되니까 진짜 편해요. 굳이 크롬의 번역을 이용하지 않아도, 엣지에서 이 확장 프로그램만 설치하면 크롬에서보다 훨씬 더 편하게 번역 기능 이용할 수 있습니다. 이거 깔아두시는 거 추천합니다. 커서로 그은 문장들 바로바로 한눈에 번역해 보여주니까 진짜 간단하고 편해요.
  • (2023-08-07) Nikolay Lysenko: perfect ext-n. easy to use, lots of customization, fast, I have found no bugs.
  • (2023-08-04) Nikolay “hv” Lysenko: fantastic! i love the customization!
  • (2023-08-02) Алексей Пахом: Спустя 2 года поменял мнение. Пока один из лучших вариантов. Лаги как то сами собой пропали ------------------ The application is excellent, but after 10-30 minutes of work, google bans access to the translation, and the application becomes useless. You have to wait an hour for the application to work again. Timing settings don't help. By the degree of text input, automatic translation becomes meaningless, since the application sends many requests and Google decides to ban access to the translation for an indefinite time. I will change the review if the problem is resolved
  • (2023-07-27) Raheb Aref: It is a very good extension, but there is a small problem. I hope this comment will be read, and the issue will be fixed. The problem arises when I translate a word or sentence in the extension box and press the read text button. It works properly for a single click, but if I press it consecutively or more than once, it reads the text multiple times, creating interference in the resulting sounds. Please address this problem. Dear reader, please note that I wrote this comment to help improve the extension and make the experience more seamless. Thank you.
  • (2023-07-11) Viet Bao Mai: best translating extension, since it doesn't open any new tab

  • (2023-01-13) SHADOW: Удобно, но лучшего пока не нашёл. Было бы классно если бы можно было выбирать словари перевода: гугл, яндекс, реверсо. ____________________________________________ Convenient, but I haven't found a better one yet. It would be cool if you could select the dictionaries of translation: Google, Yandex, and Reverso.
  • (2023-01-09) Bruno Filho: Bom demais, uso em todos navegadores que possuo :)
  • (2022-12-14) Jeffrey Marbid: This is the best translator extension I know. I use it to learn Spanish, and this has undoubtedly the most useful tool in my language learning. This tool alone brought me from B2 to C1 in my Spanish reading abilities. Thank you!

  • (2022-11-26) תחליפים ל פורנו: יש אתרים שהוא לא מתרגם את כל חלקי הדף. גם אם יש שינוי בדף הוא לא מכיל את התרגום על השינוי בדף.
  • (2022-11-22) Mykyta Chalyi: I LOVED IT UNTIL IT STOPPED WORKING I used this extension a lot on my job and it was so super easy to use, yet after several days it stopped working ,console shows some strange denies in API usage, :"Access to XMLHttpRequest at 'https://translate.googleapis.com/translate_a/single?client=gtx&sl=auto&tl=en&dt=t&dt=bd&dj=1&q=deingresar' from origin 'https://my.livechatinc.com' has been blocked by CORS policy: No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource." "Failed to load resource: net::ERR_FAILED" Any idea? Another Google Translate API app stopped working as well, and I don't know why, when Google Translate (website) works just fine. PLEASE FIX ASAP

  • (2022-12-29, v:2.8.0) Gregorio Litenstein: Can't translate websites

  • (2022-10-30, v:2.8.0) Ida Moofus: Automatic translation
    I have long had issues with the automatic page translation function not triggering. It sometimes will even work on a page one time, then fail on a repeat visit. A dedicated function just to force automatic translation would be immensely helpful, as opening pages inside Google Translate isn't always ideal.
  • (2022-09-01, v:2.7.2) Mihai Poe.: Change font

  • (2022-01-10, v:2.6.1) Niek Oosterbaan: Bug Report "Translate on modifier key pressed"
    This option only works when you press the modifier key before selecting the text, which isn't explained in the description of the option. Maybe this isn't working as intended. And if it is, please add another option so that I can click a button after I selected text to make the translation appear, thanks!
  • (2021-11-05, v:2.6.1) Najla N. A: Show what Language been Translated
    I love this extension, but in the same time I think I still cannot stop opening Google Translate page itself rather than the extension(and that sucks). The only think made me do that is when you translating something, it's only show the result of the selected language. I just wish you could see what language it been translated from(or maybe make it optional will be better:P). Also, since I always translating stuff on the extension and turns out need to do it on the G-translate. Can you add button to make it open the text typed there (if available) in the G-translate page? Thanks [note: I literally already have this idea a couple year agoXD, but Idk why I didn't write it here.]

  • (2020-04-01, v:2.2.0) Joe: Maybe make a translator that simplifies more advanced english for people who don't understand very advanced words?
    Like in this page for example? https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Open_Content_-_A_Practical_Guide_to_Using_Creative_Commons_Licences/The_Creative_Commons_licencing_scheme I don't understand alot of this, And I'm a native born english speaker with it as my first and only language, English can be too overcomplex and convoluted with words. As you see on that page link. It's very confusing even to normal english speakers. So could you possibly please make some modification that makes it way easier to understand for people who don't really get what's going on with that? It just seems like they tried to make it too complicated on purpose. I'm not dumb, I just don't typically see words used like that and I don't talk like that, I'm very casual. So a casual english translator might be good?
