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. The great thing about this extension is that it allows you to translate a whole page into another language. 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). Another useful feature is that you can hover over the translated text and see the original text in yellow (without having to switch back, you can compare the texts).  I had to restart my Chrome to get the extension to work. It has 52 languages to choose from (for now).To learn more about this Chrome extension, click on the link below:
