Simple Translate

Description from extension meta

Quickly translate selected text on web page. In toolbar popup, you can translate input text.

Image from store Simple Translate
Description from store When you select text, the translation button pops up and the translation is displayed instantly. If you enable "Do not display the button if translation is not required" option, you will not get frustrated by the button appearing when it is not necessary. In the toolbar popup, translate the input text in real time. If you enable "Automatically switch to the second language" option, you can do : When English is input, it is translated into Japanese, and when Japanese is input, it is translated into English. You can also translate from the context menu. You can select "Translate this page", "Translate selected text", and "Translate selected link" from the menu on the page or tab. USERS: If you translate it many times in a short time, it may become unusable for a while due to the specification change of the translation API. If it occurs frequently, it is recommended to increase the translation waiting time on option page.

  • (2020-04-12) Tan Zuñiga: No funciona con pdfs :(
  • (2020-04-09) Radu: It's the best translation tool out there because it doesn't open a new tab to the google translate website but instead it pops up a small window next to the highlighted text that you wish to translate.
  • (2020-04-04) jmpvaz71: Mas práctica, rápida y simple no la he encontrado, cumple lo que promete sin historias raras ni complicaciones. No le doy las 5 estrellas por lo siguiente: 1º.- No funciona la traducción en algunas páginas (y cada vez me voy encontrando mas). Por ejemplo en la de la Chrome Web Store, intenten traducir las explicaciones o reseñas de cada extensión y lo comprobaréis, no aparece ni el botón ni el panel de traducción. 2º.- Cuando utilizas muchas veces la extensión dentro de "X" período de tiempo, la extensión deja de funcionar, te sale un aviso indicándolo, con lo cual tienes que esperar un rato... o bien reiniciar el navegador habiendo borrado caché y cookies antes de cerrarlo. Yo ya le escribí al desarrollador hace unos dos meses explicándole estas cuestiones, pero todavía siguen ocurriendo. Por lo demás, es bastante practica.

  • (2019-11-03) Muhammet Sarakaya: Very bad. Every day I get many errors like this: "Error: Service usage limit reached. Please wait a moment and try again." ... I use this plugin to translate comments on Reddit because my English is not very good. But this extension often makes this mistake. Dear Simple Translate developers, there is nothing you need to do during the translation process! Google does all the translation thing. Google's servers are running. Why do you always stop me from translating! Why do your extension get many errors in a day! I'm bored! I'm deleting.
  • (2019-11-02) sandal sock: 相比于firefox浏览器, 少了一个快捷键 希望可以增加以下
  • (2019-10-28) Yang Ding: Perfect extension! It's what I need. Simple to use. Many options for settings and customization. Best translate extension ever! Edit: Seems there's limit for query. I encountered Error: Service usage limit reached. Please wait a while and try again. Can it be optimized? Or it seems it's hard to use.

Latest issues

  • (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?
  • (2020-03-14, v:2.2.0) Leon: Hotkeys
    Could you please add the shortcuts from firefox? So you can press STRG + SPACE for example to translate highlighted text. I would love to get that feature on Chrome Windows 10.
