Use Chrome Browser to Translate a Page

Google is deprecating it's Google Translate Toolkit. The Google Translate Toolkit is usually what you see on a webpage that lets you select a language to view the page in.

Fortunately, most browsers now offer a method of translation from within the browser, itself.


First, you will want to enable the languages of your choice within the browser:

You can control whether Chrome will offer to translate webpages.

  1. On your computer, open Chrome.
  2. At the top right, click More More > Settings.
  3. At the bottom, click Advanced.
  4. Under "Languages," click Language.
  5. Check or uncheck "Offer to translate pages that aren't in a language you read."

When you come across a page written in a language you don't understand, you can use Chrome to translate the page.

  1. On your computer, open Chrome.
  2. Go to a webpage written in another language.
  3. At the top, click Translate.
  4. Chrome will translate the webpage this one time.

Not working? Try refreshing the webpage. If it’s still not working, right-click anywhere on the page. Then, click Translate to [Language].
