Get Chrome’s Inbuilt Translation Option in Firefox

Mozilla is testing Chrome’s like inbuilt translation in its latest beta version of Firefox. When you visit a webpage that is in another language, Chrome’s built-in translation bar should offer to translate the page into English. Here is how to enable and test this useful feature in Firefox.


Mozilla is using Microsoft Translate service for translating web content into different languages in Firefox. Though this feature is not working properly in Firefox, you can try it out now.

1. First, download and install the latest beta version of Firefox (Firefox 32)

2. In the address bar, type about:config and hit Enter.

3. Search for browser.translation.detectLanguage and change its value to true (just double click the preferences value)

4. Search for browser.translation.ui.show and change its value to true.

 
5. Restart Firefox to apply the changes.

Visit any page that is not in your preferred language in Firefox. You should see a translation bar with ‘Translate’ and ‘Not now’ option. However, when you click the Translate option you will get error message.

Also, you can see a new “Translation web content” option under ‘Content’ tab. Note this option only appears after enabling above mentioned preferences.
