get built-in translation feature


New member

Say if i am a native English speaker and i want to check out a website that is in Japanese, the Browser Firefox will detect a language that is not English and translate it to the users language

New member

Firefox should add in an automatic translator like its competitors the add-ons do not work and having the user to switch to another browser is such a hassle

Please FireFox

Thank you.

Add a fast translation option like in Chrome

If you can add a quick translation button that will translate the whole page I think it will take you a step further it is the only thing that bothers me and other users to switch completely if you add it it will be huge Thank you very much for the app that keeps our information



I know some users may not want the idea because it will need to connect to a translation engine but a warning can be given before agreeing to use this function

Sorry for my incomprehensible English

Hey all,

Here with another exciting update…

This idea has been upgraded to "In review" which means it will be brought to our internal teams for review—learn more about The Idea Journey. As soon as we have another update on its status, we’ll let you know right here in the comment section.

Stay tuned 😃

Making moves

Firefox Translations is good but it should be built into the browser (as it is with other competitors) rather than an extension.

If we could also get support for French translation that would be great as it is something I would use on a daily basis.

The lack of a built-in translator is a big reason why I switched browsers. I wish I could go back to Firefox. 🤞

Making moves

If you implement this, please consider partnering with DeepL ( They are the best service out there by far!

Not applicable

As a native Japanese speaker, I would point out that even DeepL has difficulty translating Japanese into English accurately.

Please put a translator in the menu (top right).

Firefox - Internal translation engine

It would be useful to insert a translator in the contextual menu of the pages. Translate pages with the right mouse button

Browser default translation function

The browser's own translation option is missing without having to install an extension.

Mozilla published the Firefox Translations addon (it should be improved, but exists and works enough well):

Translate Web Pages (built in)

Does anyone know if mozilla is planning on adding a built in web page translator anytime?

Strollin' around

Although there are some translation options in firefox via add-ins, it is still missing in-line automatic translation. This means any page which isn't public (thus not accessible by google page translate) is very awkard to translate, and even regular pages are less convenient than other browsers.

Both Chrome & Edge have the ability to automatically translate text to the preferred language, Firefox should have it too.
