I used to find there is "translation" click-able for translation of language of each webpage found by Google. But I don't have it anymore. I was wondering how to show the translation of a webpage in Google?

Thanks and regards!

The Translation Browser Buttons is an official collection of bookmarklets usable in any browser.

To use, simply drag the link to your link bar for the language you are going to want to translate TO. (In my case, that'd be English.)

Then, when you find a web page you want to translate, simply click the link in your link bar. If you only want to translate a portion, select the text to translate then click the link.

In Google Chrome, go to the wrench menu, select "Preferences..." and then, "Under the Hood". Make sure the option "Offer to translate pages that aren't in the language I read" is checked (see picture).

To set your default reading languages, click that big "Languages and Spell-checker settings..." button.
