Tools to Easier Access Google Translate

I’ve been previously reviewing some useful tools to help with international browsing – obviously, the best and the most powerful tool for that is Google Translate. Luckily, there are a few cool tools that help to easier access Google Translate:

Integrate with FireFox:

Apart from official Google toolbar, there’s another great FireFox addon allowing to easier translate web pages. gTranslate is a handy FireFox extension that adds Google Translate to your browser: just select any text, right-click on it, choose "Translate" and you are done!

  • Automatically identifies the language of the original text.
  • Detects the "lang" attribute of the of the selected text (or the whole page).
  • Automatically detects the destination language as the browser locale language.
  • Translates image title or alt attributes.

Integrate with Gtalk:

If you have to often translate some language units, you should consider adding one of the translating robots to your Gtalk list (I already mentioned this tip in my Gtalk tools list).

  1. This is very cool! I knew about the Google Toolbar, which I didn’t want to install, but had no idea about the other options. This list is great!
