Bottom Line: Firefox Translate Webpage

Why Google Translate? It supports up to 109 languages, and it is likely that you will find the translation for whatever you are looking for from the service. It is against the background of its extensive library of languages. I prefer it over other add-ons. In fact, some add-ons link you back to Google translate when you attempt to translate a webpage.

I am very passionate about football and the transfer window is a nervous period when you are eager to know which player your team is bringing in or sending out. Multiple articles are written linking players from team to team.

Given the diversity in the world, not all these articles are in English. I use the google translate add-on to translate webpages that may contain information I am interested in.

So far, this has worked for me perfectly. I have been able to keep up with what’s happening regarding the transfer window in Spain, France, England, China, Germany among other places.

Install the Google translation add-on on your Firefox browser and read the webpages in your favorite language.

What topics are you passionate about? Do you sometimes stumble upon articles in your areas of interest but written in other languages?
