Integrated translator

One of Firefox's big bets should be an integrated translator like its competitor Edge has. Edge has the option to right-click and translate the entire page or parts of a text. All this directly, without opening pages or needing any extension.

Possibly THE most important feature. How could it not be? A lot of webpages are in languages other than English, news sources are among the top. The internet was founded on the principles of sharing information so a robust translation engine is critical to that mission.

@SNH I can't understand how Firefox doesn't have a built-in translator yet. It is very strange. This should not be difficult to implement.

@SNH & @hlourencoam we're building one now, and it's actually available to try out in Firefox Nightly - check it out and let us know what you think.

Also, if you'd like to see support for a specific language added to our translations feature, submit an idea here (or vote for others have already been requested).

Thanks!

I'll be blunt here, Edge is **bleep**,e but I still keep going back to edge because I can't speak Deutsche and I need to get all my pages translated before I can buy or login. Lately, edge has been freezing and crushing with the error code Error_Hung (something like this). I have reset my laptop and have lost some files hoping the error would stop but it didn't and I have installed Firefox and Brave but I prefer MFFox. The only thing that makes me go back to edge is that even after the addons, I still don't get the pages translated right, and even though I prefer MFFox, i think edge has a thing over edge interms of translation.

Please make the translation better than Edge. For Chrome, I don't want to install it on my PC.

I would love to, @Jon, but I can’t find a link to a iOS TestFlight version. I’m using Firefox with a translation add-on on the Mac 😉

@JonIt is on the right track. However, I think the right-click function is more practical, faster and more functional. Being able to choose to translate parts of a text, be it a word or a sentence, or the whole text, is much better. But for a test, it is on the right track.

I strongly suggest not adding this to firefox. This is a classic example of something that can be added via addon. Firefox's code base should avoid unnecessary complexity.

Built-in translation feature is missing in Mozilla Firefox browser

Hello,

Please add built-in translation feature like Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome etc. When I browse others language website I can't recognize their language but in Microsoft edge it's very much easy and helpful to understand.

Hope you will add the feature soon.

B/R,

Nazmul
