How to Auto-Translate a Webpage on Brave browser

Learn how to enable auto-translation for the webpage on the Brave browser. We need to install the extension to allow the browser for language translation.

The Brave browser does not have the built-in translation feature, however, we can install the third-party extensions that are officially supported to auto-translate the webpage. The translate extension automatically detects the input language and translates it to the desired language script in a readable format.

Auto-Translate Web Page on Brave browser

I often visit online pages that are not in English or a known language but in foreign languages. Of course, it frustrates me when I do not understand the page’s contents. And I can’t know all foreign languages. I’m a human, after all!

But this is where the translation feature comes to my rescue. The page’s contents are translated into English in the blink of an eye, making it easy to understand.

I thought my experience would be the same with the Brave browser. Unfortunately, the browser does not have an in-built translation feature. At first, I was disappointed to know about this, but then I started looking for solutions. I found out that you can use extensions for translating web pages.

We can download the Google Translate extension on the Brave browser, officially supported and used effectively for web page translation.

Brave browser recommends the Google Translate extension. If the language of a page you’re on varies from the language you’re using, the extension will instantly identify it. The extension is easy to download and does its job fairly quickly. It is also precise. You can translate web pages by clicking on the translated symbol.

Install Translate Extension

You can translate text, documents, and speech into over 100 languages but not graphical images. Google Translation supports hundreds of native and local languages by extending support to others.

You need to add the Google Translate extension from the Chrome web store before using it on Brave.
