The new beta translation is a great feature, and I can't wait for more languages to be added.

I wonder if it's in the roadmap to give an API so web developers could use the translation feature in Javascript. I'd love to be able to give users a choice to translate foreign texts to their languages and not use a 3rd party API like Google Translate. Maybe that could become part of a Web Standard ? (doubtful about that, but one can dream 🙂 )

Add translation, such as Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge

I hope that translation will be added to the browser, such as Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge. I have been waiting for this for a long time

@person_1 translations were delivered in Firefox 118 (see Release Notes here). If it's not working for you or if there are any additional languages you'd like to see supported, let us know.

For Android, there is no translation. As for the computer, there is no translation into Arabic. I hope that a translation into Arabic will be added soon.

@person_1 we're working on translations for Android - you can follow the thread here:

Page Translator for Firefox Android 

And there's also a thread for Arabic translations:

include arabic translation 

Feel free to vote and add your input there 😀

the only reason why I’m installing google chrome on my iPad is for its translation function. I don’t want to install so many browser on one device, so please make a select to translate function.

I recently realized the "TWP - Translate Web Pages" Firefox extension was causing an audio bug w/ Firefox, but the functionality of it is the best replication of the Chrome translate page feature. I think Firefox is long overdue for a solid native translation feature.

@diligationx12 a native translation feature was delivered in Firefox 118 (see Release Notes here) and we're still working on supporting more languages - is there a particular language you're looking for?
