  2. Easiest way: click on this link: Google Translate Extension –> and proceed directly to step 6
  3. Alternative way: Click on the three-dot menu icon in the top right corner of the browser.
  4. Hover over “More tools”, then click on “Extensions.” (and Visit the Chrome Web Store)
  5. In the Chrome Web Store search bar, type “Google Translate” and press Enter.
  6. In the search results, find the first option: “Google Translate” and click on “Add to Chrome.”
  7. In the pop-up window that appears, click on “Add extension.”
  8. The extension should now be added to your Chrome browser. You can see it in the top right corner of the browser as a small blue square with a white ‘G’ from Google and then a grayish block behind it.

How to Use the Google Translate Extension

  1. Navigate to an English webpage that you want to translate.
  2. Click on the Google Translate icon that is now in the top right corner of your browser.
  3. In the pop-up window that appears, click on “Translate this page.”
  4. From the dropdown menu, select “Spanish” or your preferred language. The page will be translated into the selected language.
Helpful Note

Using the above method translates the page only for your current session. When you revisit or reload the page, it will display in its original language.

To avoid translating websites that offer a native translation option (like Amazon), you can manually opt not to translate these websites when Google Translate prompts you.

Keep in mind that Google Translate doesn’t always provide perfect translations. Some websites might also block Google Translate to prevent potential misinterpretations. Always adhere to the terms of service when using different websites.

Step-by-Step Instructions on How to Switch Between Translated Text and Original Text

To Translate the Page

  1. Once you navigate to a page in a language different from your default, click on the Google Translate extension icon in your browser’s toolbar (top right corner).
  2. Click on “Translate this page.”
  3. From the dropdown menu, select “Spanish” or any preferred language. The page will then be translated into the selected language.

To Revert to the Original Language

  1. After a page has been translated, click on the Google Translate extension icon again in your browser’s toolbar.
  2. The extension will display the current language of the translation (e.g., “Translating to Spanish”). Next to this, there will be a button that says “Show Original.”
  3. Click on “Show Original” to revert the page to its original language.
Helpful Note

To toggle between the original and translated versions of a page, you can simply repeat these steps as needed.

Please note that when you refresh the page or navigate elsewhere and then return, the page will revert to the original language. You would need to re-translate the page using the same steps.

And again, keep in mind that while Google Translate is a powerful tool, it’s not perfect and may not always translate text accurately or maintain the original formatting of a webpage.
