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.)

Thanks for the additional info and links @Jeppie super helpful!

@nnaaaaaaaaaaa Support for Japanese, Korean, and Chinese translations (plus others) is planned for the second half of this year - so starting soon. 

We'll try to keep you all updated throughout the process.

Hey all,

I added a correction to my status update - this feature is being rolled out now and will be officially shipped in Firefox 128. 

Thanks again and please feel free to keep the conversation going.

Add translate web page options

Dear Firefox Development Team,

As a long-time Firefox user, I appreciate its performance, privacy features, and user-friendly interface. However, I suggest adding a web page translation feature to the mobile app. This addition would:

  1. Enhance Accessibility: Allow users to understand content from around the world.
  2. Improve Convenience: Enable translation without relying on third-party apps.
  3. Increase Competitiveness: Match features offered by other leading browsers.
  4. Support Learning: Aid users learning new languages by translating content on the fly.

This feature would be a valuable addition, greatly benefiting the global user base. Thank you for considering this suggestion.

Sincerely,
Mirza Jaun

@mirza_jaun good news, this feature is being rolled out now and will be officially shipped in Firefox 128.

If your request is for Firefox iOS, here is a link to that idea thread:

@Jon I have Firefox 128 installed on my phone, but it is not apparent to me how I use the translation feature. Could you please elaborate how to use it?

same here. I've been waiting for this feature for over half a year now. it's crutial for me as I live in a foreign country where many of the websites are in the local language I don't speak. I had to install Opera on my phone because FF is utterly useless in this regard.

also, I'm worried about the reliability of this feature anyway because I've tried FF translation on desktop and to be honest, it is crap. I had used some google translator FF extension for this purpose before. I uninstalled it, to give the new built-in feature a chance. it breaks the page's CSS, elements start appearing double right next or above each other, and the translation itself is far inferior to that of the Google Translate community extension, to the extent it either totally changes the meaning of the sentence or it's just unclear what the line means. after couple days I had to disable the FF built-in page translator and revert to the good old community extension...

@Jonhow can Firefox win the browsers race if Mozilla is constantly behind? maybe Mozilla is excelling in privacy and its terms and conditions are for the favour of the users, unlike Chrome or any other commercial browser out there, but the vast majority of users aren't concerned with that and simply want an up-to-date feature rich web browser!
