I have an N-Gram plot where the frequencies span several orders of magnitude and are thus some relevant results are not really readable on a linear scale. I am aware that I can multiply some lines with a constant, but that makes the data I want to present overly complicated. Using a logarithmic scale for the frequencies would however solve my problem.

This feature does not seem to be directly available, but this issue is also not that important to me that I would download the raw data and analyse it myself. So my question is: Is there an easy way to obtain a logarithmic frequency axis for a Google Ngram?

A possible solution would for example involve somehow obtaining the data shown in my particular plot (which I could then plot logarithmically myself).
