How to Translate a Webpage in Opera Browser

The Opera browser does not have a built-in feature to auto-translate a webpage into a readable language. However, we can use the Opera Add-on known as Google Translate (not made by Google), available for free to support the web page translation into understandable language per preferred settings.

The Opera Browser is one of the most reliable browsers in the world. With its superfast speed and its ability to consistently provide its users with the absolute best features, enhanced settings, and advanced privacy and security.

Most people get attracted to the Opera browser because it is safe and reliable. It has also outshone Chrome in several aspects, and many prefer it over Chrome.

With Opera rolling out regular updates, it is bound to have an update for translating a webpage that is not in a language you know or understand.

With everything going online and internationally, we are bound to stumble upon websites that are not in English. In such a case, Opera Browser has the extension support to keep you afloat.

The day before yesterday, my younger sister was applying for colleges online. She was also looking at French Universities to apply to. However, not all of them had their instructions written in English on their website.

My sister got paranoid and gave up all hope of applying to this college unless I introduced her to the Google Translate add-on within the Opera browser.

Translate a Web Page on Opera

We often come across websites or manuals on international websites that are not in our native language or any other language we seem to comprehend. It may cause inconvenience since much important information can be left out due to the language barrier.

With the Google Translate – Opera browser add-on, we can translate the webpage into a known language. Though Google does not officially support this, the developer has integrated what we need into this add-on or extension. However, there are certain limitations like every other translation service does; it cannot translate the text within the images or pictures.

Here are the steps to translate a webpage on the Opera Browser:

  1. Launch the Opera Browser on the computer.
  2. Click on the Menu opera logo in the top-left corner.
  3. Click on Extensions from the drop-down list, and select Get Extensions.
    You will see the Opera add-ons stored in a new tab.
  4. Search for Google Translate in the add-on search bar.

Alternatively, you can open the desired foreign website and select the text you want to be translated for you. By doing so, Google Translate automatically recognizes it for you and translates the text to your desired language.

We can also use the keyboard shortcut — Alt + Ctrl + P to auto-translate entire webpage within the Opera browser.

  1. Ctrl-Alt-P didn’t work for me, and could not find any other option to translate a page.
    So for me – useless.
    Sorry about that.

    1. Hi Steve, the extension seems to be broken. The shortcut is neither working for me. However, you can invoke the translator using Ctrl+Alt+Z keys.
