I use Google Translate often and I wished there was a shortcut key for swapping language. Are there any?
If you use Google Chrome, this extension may be useful to you.
It allows to use keyboard shortcut for Google Translate on Web.
[Option](PC:[Alt]) + [0-7] keys are bound to each indexed button.
- lang-swap button -> Option + 0
- button1 -> Option + 1
- button2 -> Option + 2
- button3 -> Option + 3
- button4 -> Option + 4
- button5 -> Option + 5
- button6 -> Option + 6
- button7 -> Option + 7
I use this trick (in Google Chrome):
in the Other search engines section click Add:
For the Search engine field enter a name of your choice.
For the Keyword choose a shortcut, typically a short word to go to translate from the address bar.
In the URL field enter this (this is for English> Arabic translation):
then click Save.
here's a screenshot (En> Ar):
tl values to change the source-language and the to-language respectively,
for example the French to Russian translation, the URL would be:
press enter to go directly to translate with your text being translated into your to-language
