Translation of web pages with "Firefox Translations" extension

Making moves


I saw that you had finally decided to create a web page tradition module yourself. It was time, for all these years that we asked you !!!

Concerning me, I refuse to use plugins not created by you for security reasons...

After testing your "Firefox Translations" extension, I have the following remarks for you :

a) This extension should be provided as standard with Firefox without the need for an additional download.

b) The translate button that you propose at the top of the browser page is very poorly placed and not at all practical to use. You would have to offer the translation via a right-click, as Chrome and Chromium do.

c) The quality of the translation is still too irrelevant for the moment.

For these reasons, I won't go back to Firefox for now. This even though I was a 100% Netscape and then Firefox user in the past...

Hope you read this comment and do what it takes to make Firefox our favorite browser again.

I hope you will do this quickly, because the birth of Firefox Translations took too long and with a multilanguage web as it is, using Firefox has become very painful for a non-English speaking and non-polyglot person.

Best regards.

Thanks for this feedback @phil995511! Will pass it along to the Firefox Translations team. In the meantime, do you mind sharing why the quality of translations are still too irrelevant? Are they inaccurate or just not available in enough languages? Just want to make sure we better understand the feedback 😀

Hello, the translation quality from English to French was poor but it has recently been updated and it works much better.

It is missing still a lot of languages like Japanese for example.

The most annoying thing is not being able to get the translation menu by right clicking, but having to go up with the pointer of the mouse at the top of the navigation window for this.

On Windows it's also too complicated to manually check if there are updates available for Firefox. We must go to the application menu > Help > About Firefox. There it would also be necessary, for example, to be able to use the right button of the mouse to check their availability, to have direct access to this function without going through sub-menus...

As Google Chrome increasingly renders ad blockers ineffective on Youtube, I replaced it with Firefox to play video content on Linux. For standard navigation, I remain faithful for the moment to Chromium, Firefox must still improve if it wants me to use it too fot this.

When do the "Firefox Translations" extension support Chinese?

just use TWP. way better. TWP - Translate Web Pages

further more, I'd say don't count on them for such tings.
