get built-in translation feature
Wish the Firefox browser had its own translation instead of having to download a plugin.
THEY SHOULD INTRODUCE A NATIVE TRANSLATOR FOR WEB PAGES LIKE IN GOOGLE CHROME
I do not agree. Machine translation will work for European languages, but not for others.
Instead of having this built-in ... i would rather see the appropriate web-ext API extended to be able to fill the required need. -
They are working on making offline translation possible - here's an article from May 2021: https://www.ghacks.net/2021/05/29/mozilla-integrates-firefox-translations-into-firefox/
The GitHub repo is still being worked on and you can find installation instructions to test it here: https://github.com/mozilla/firefox-translations
@OkanAtasoy @tech189 @Emmanuel @igorlogius @Anonymous Hi all! his could be done voluntarily if there was an api with the Crowdin translation service. Reference: https://alternativeto.net/software/google-translate/?license=opensource
PAGE TRANSLATE as part of the browser/menu
On the right = there should be a translate page added to the menu.
If Mozilla wanna do it in the best way they should do a partnership with DeepL which is by FAR the best translating engine. It can understand the difference between a sentence on informal or formal dutch, can translate correctly a sentence using tuteo/voseo/ustedeo in spanish, and also can see not only the difference between British english and American english. In case of American english it can translate more efficiently some subtle words in sentences like "ain't" and "isn't".
DeepL makes every sentence sound human and not translated by a machine. Taking this approach can make some people move from Chrome to Firefox. Mostly spanish speakers were Google makes too much mistakes translating and sentences sometimes don't make any sense.
