I wonder how Page Translator is missing on Firefox Android. Please Introduce a Page Translator.

(Here's a screenshot of auto detected page Translator from the Brave Browser.)

It would be great if we have a Built in translator or a translator addon on the android app

Don't just please depend on enough votes or kutos. Essential features suggestion like this should be considered even when the number of kudos or votes are less.

I personally don't like forums (probably every forum follows this) like this that depends solely on the kudos/vote system.

Thanks for bringing this up @Anonymous & @Jeppie -- and you make a great point, kudos/votes are only part of the decision making process. And hey we should actually have updates this week for some of these translation ideas. Stay tuned.

              @Jon thank you. I hope that's it about built-in and new languages because the other 2 are already available. You have text translation already and you can use firefox-translations already on android. What they can do is make it availble without using collection. sometimes i wonder if built-in is a great idea because it wil take more resources in firefox or am i wrong? But the option as built-in sounds nice too. One thing i'm wondering about if firefox-translations have all the languages or the most requested is mozilla gonna delete all translate add-ons from the add-ons store? Not really that i care because i use firefox-translations.

@Anonymous if you use beta or nightly you can use the collection add-ons option but if you use stable you need to wait until a translation add-on will become available like firefox relay did. Probably it will be then firefox-translations or you need to wait for a in-built option what is now in review.

        @Anonymous then those 2 articles are your only help. https://connect.mozilla.org/t5/ideas/get-built-in-translation-feature/idi-p/5347  https://connect.mozilla.org/t5/ideas/translation-add-on-firefox-for-android/idi-p/286   Also do you want a in-built translation like other mobile browsers or do you want to have a add-on what now is available. If it goes in-built then it will be different then those chromium browsers because mozilla will use there own translation. The problem with that it hasn't many languages. The solution i got from someone is copy the website link into the google translate site and open the website with that. I do this for japanese websites until japanese is supported by firefox-translations. I also use this in firefox focus because if im done then is everything deleted. Also use a vpn for more protection.
