Translate words in Firefox with a single click

Today's society works at a global level, and that usually requires the ability to speak at least one foreign language besides your mother tongue.

But if you never managed to learn the German declension system or the Spanish verbs, don't worry. Now you can rely on gTranslate to grasp the general meaning of any online document you come across while browsing the web.

This extension enables you to translate any word on any webpage to the language of your selection, provided it's supported by the Google translation services which are the ones used by gTranslate.

The extension sets the right language combination automatically, according to your browser's language and the website you're visiting, but you can change it if you like.

Also, though I thought it would only work with singles words, I was pleased to see it could translate short snippets of text as well.

On the downside, the translation sometimes takes a while to appear, or doesn't appear at all.

In any case, always use automatic translation with care: they can help you understand the overall meaning but they usually fail in grammar and syntax.

With this extension you can translate words and text snippets on any webpage, always bearing in mind that automatic translations are far from perfect.
