Just go on Google Translate and paste the URL to translate in the left box. Select your target (and source) language and click on the resulting link in the right box. You will be redirected to the translated website in the desired language. The URL can be shared with others to share the translated website. Because the translation URLs are very long, I tend ...

Not Google, but similar. Yandex Translate has image upload using desktop web browsers. https://translate.yandex.com/ocr I use this in a Flotato browser which enables me to quickly translate screen grabs without them accumulating on my hard drive (because the screen grab is automatically deleted after I've dragged it onto the Yandex/Flotato window).

You can't do that by translating the page through the Google Translate, because you're running inside an iframe, so it's basically works only for public pages that doesn't require login. Install Google Chrome and visit this page. It will offer you to translate it, or if it's not then right click anywhere on the page then choose to translate this page. Also ...

The Google Translate page uses Flash to play the sounds of the words being translated: So you only have to worry about it if you want to hear the words.

This is just an educated guess, but I believe it has to do with the fact that Google Translate is based on machine-translation AI, that gets better with user interaction, so the more users “correct” it to “China” (or, for that matter, translate it to China on many, many, many web sites across the web), the more it will automatically (due to statistics) ...

You can use the following formula to get text translated: =GoogleTranslate("text", "source language","target language") See reference: TRANSLATE

You can use DocTranslator. It keeps the document layout, and translates your document in seconds. Apparently it uses the Google Translate API as well, so I suppose that would achieve what you are looking for.

If Google Translate deems your browser to be capable of playing audio via HTML5 sufficiently, it will use it. Otherwise, it will use Flash to play the audio. I wrote the following JavaScript which will switch between audio playback rates, should your browser be capable of playing Google's audio files using HTML5: (function (rate) { var p = Audio....

I doubt you can actually get exactly the old interface, Google may already remove the code altogether. However you can get something close by disabling JavaScript for the page, you can easily double-click the translated text to select it, as shown in the image below: Alternatively, even without disabling JavaScript you can do the selection with just an ...

Sometimes I have the same problem. In the Target Language side, mouse over the bottom of the text box. You may see icons you did not see before. There are 5 icons. The third and middle icon looks like an A with two dots on top. Click the third and middle icon (that looks like an A with two dots on top). Now you see the phonetic version of the ...

There is no setting to permanently change the playback speed. As you likely already know, they play the normal speed on the first click, the slower speed on the second click, and then alternate on subsequent clicks. If the normal speed is too slow for you then you are unfortunately out of luck. If it's tolerable then I'm confident there is a way to create ...

In newer versions of Google Translate, speech seems to be slower if you press and hold down the "Speak" button for a few seconds before releasing rather than just clicking it.

One can slow Google Translate down by inserting spaces and full stops; e.g., " Your . . . French . . . . class . . . . was . . . . wonderful. . . . . . " will slow the speech down somewhat.

You can get the tu form by left clicking on the vous in your translation. Then choose tu. Left click on any of the translated words and you will get a choice of alternatives.

For the German 'du' familiar form simply type 'du' instead of 'you'. Example: "What do du want?" will translate as "was willst du werden?" Just be sure to type 'du' the first time. If you accidentally type 'you' it keeps it in the proper 'Sie' formulation. Hope that helps.

Here is my trick. Add words "Sir" or "Lady" to force formal. eg. "You" --> "You lady" or "You Sir" Informal "You are the coolest guy." "Du bist der coolste Typ." in German "Eres el chico más genial." in Spanish "Tu es le gars le plus cool." in French Formal "You Sir are the coolest guy." "Sie Sir sind der coolste Typ." in German "Usted señor es el tipo ...

Google translate doesn't keep a history of things you've translated. Since this is the case there isn't no way to export your previous translation history.


2

You need to separate the text you want to translate from the code. Google Translate can't do that for you. It simply tries to translate all of the text given to it. (How to put your application together so that it's easier to translate the text of it into different languages is beyond the scope of this site.)

I found the answer, for anyone else who might be looking. You just add the class "notranslate" to your element and Google Translate will leave it untranslated. Ref: support.google.com/translate/?hl=en#2641276

There does not seem to be a way to submit pronunciation improvements. The best you can do is to use the Send feedback link in the bottom of the screen.

Hit the [Translate] button above the "right window". ;) When you paste (or edit) a larger block of text Google does not seem to translate it instantly (on-the-fly), but instead waits until you have entered all the text you want translated. So you need to manually hit the [Translate] button. Probably because translation is computationally expensive. Although ...

You can use the Google Translate Android application offline if you download the languages. Athtek Software's website lists a free Google Desktop Translator. I haven't tried either one.

If you're wanting to switch quickly from Detect→EN to EN→HU, that's similar to what I often do with Dutch and French. I also hate having to open the dropdown and find the language every time, so I've come up with a little trick to shorten the process a bit. I just type a short word in Dutch (like "goed") which I know will get auto-detected. Then all I have ...
