@JonI have 2 questions: 1. How is the review going? And 2. How long takes a review?

Thanks for following up here, @Jeppie

1. The review for this idea is going well—we should have an announcement here shortly.

2. Depends—sometimes pretty quickly and other times a bit longer. But we're working to improve this process and make it quicker/more standardized.

Hope this helps!

I'm trying the addons mozilla translator, there's still a lot of work to do, but the start is great.

@OkanAtasoy Nice suggestion. 👍 Just want to add more inputs on this issue,
If Firefox is adding an in-built translator, then it should focus mainly on privacy and convenience as almost all the Firefox recommended extensions we have now are opening in a new browser tab using the Google translator. Which is inconvenient. And few other extensions (Not Firefox recommended extensions) we have now are having in-page translators such as TWP extension. But these are not Firefox recommended extensions. So, Firefox should have an in-built translator with wider language support as @TuanAnh stated in this comment thread.

 If Mozilla is gonna built-in translation. What they must do to get the browser more popular. I have then 1 question and 2 requests. First question is what is gonna happen with text translation? Desktop browser: put a button next to the search bar/add-ons or put it in the 3 dots section? Mobile browser: keep a button flowing on the screen or put it in the 3 dots section? I don't really mind where it is put but i want on mobile to use text translation also on the homepage. Now you need to go to a website to use text translation. The disadvantages are you need to reload a tab or you need to open a new tab like me who doesn't have much tabs or none tabs open. I hope the firefox team look good into my comment to make text translation still available if translation is getting inbuilt. 1 more request begin desktop version and mobile version on the same time instead of desktop first and mobile second. I don't know the reason why this always is. 1 more question for you Jon you said a month ago we will get a answer if this is getting in development or not and you said then we will get shortly answer. i like to know what shortly is for mozilla because i always learned that shortly is a couple of days or 1/2 weeks. I'm not mad or something but i just want to learn it for the next time.

I don't agree built-in translator inside Firefox as long as it will have to use companies' translator services instead of having a proper one from Mozilla itself, in order not to fall into privacy management issues.

@foxzenif they do in-built translation like chromium haves then they will do there own translation. Mozilla will then use firefox-translations for in-built translation. They will never use google translate as in-built translation. Mozilla maked firefox-translations for a reason and they will not ditch that for google translation after they worked so much in firefox-translations.

Add Feature Automatic language translation, It is very important that there is an automatic language translation feature in today's browsers.
