    Add-on for translating text in Firefox

    I am using Firefox as my default web browser on my Windows XP system. As per my job profile some times i need to translate any text from the web page to some other language. For that i need to open Google translate or yahoo babel fish and than get the result. One of my colleague has suggested me that there is some add-on out for Firefox that can translate the text right there. Could you guys please let me know about the add-on and where can i download the same ?

    Yeah, there is add-on for Firefox and it is called as gTranslate. With gTranslate you can translate any text in a webpage just by selecting and right-clicking over it. Once you get this add-on installed, If you select some text and then right click, you'll see new translation option. The tool will be an automatic translation of the first part of the text right next to the menu display, which will be all you need if you are just a few words or a phrase chosen small.The extension uses the Google translation services to translate the text.

    Download gTranslate

    Remember that with gTranslate you can only translate selected text and not a full page. For doing so still need to enter the page's URL on the Google Translate site.If you select a long paragraph for translation, the shortcut sub-menu is unable to display the whole translation within the limited space.Look if you have the Image zoom extension installed. Seems like gTranslate and Image Zoom doesn't fit well together. To solve the problem uninstall and re-install Image Zoom. If you still have the problem please contact me with the list of installed extensions.
