Google Chrome browser adds website language translation feature

March 2, 2010

(ChattahBox) – Google has launched a new beta version (4.1.249.1021), of its web browser, Chrome, featuring automatic translation and enhanced privacy controls.   The new version, which can be downloaded from the Google Chrome Beta channel website, will allow users to specify that they want every web page they visit to appear in a certain language, and also offer the opportunity to set privacy controls that are specific to individual websites.
The move means that web users can translate text of websites from any language to their own via Chrome, assuming it is supported.  If you have used Google’s translation tools, before you know that machine translation is far from perfect but compared to others, their implementation is very good. You can set Chrome to always translate pages in a certain language, but apparently there’s no option to manually translate a web page, which is an odd omission.  The new privacy settings, available under Options – Under the Hood – Privacy, allows you to fine tune your privacy settings and control how Chrome handles cookies, images, JavaScript, plug-ins, and pop-ups for individual sites.
