Web Browser Chrome: Google Translate Extension

The web browser Chrome (by Google) now has the ability to add extensions to your browser. The one extension I recently installed on my Chrome browser was Google Translate.

It’s not a 100% perfect, but it’s a great way to learn a language by using everyday media and materials you use and read on the internet (and you can switch back to the original language).

It has 52 languages to choose from (for now).To learn more about this Chrome extension, click on the link below:
