Free Add-on for Chrome Users

Google Translate for Chrome is a free online translation service that works as an extension for Google Chrome. Users simply select their target language and paste the text that they need to translate into the box on the left hand side. Choose the language that you want the text to appear in, press the blue Translate button and you will receive your translation almost instantly.

Lost in Translation

Despite being one of the best free translation tools around, users will quickly discover that Google Translate for Chrome is far from perfect. Even simple phrases are likely to come out rather jumbled and even completely wrong. The most reliable translations are between European languages such as English, German, French, Italian and Spanish, while the add-on is next to useless when it comes to translating European languages into Asian languages and vice versa.

Are You a Cunning Linguist?

People who are looking for a casual way to translate phrases to communicate with business clients or loved ones may want to put Google Translate for Chrome through its paces. However, people who require accurate translations for business purposes would be better paying for professional translation services, especially when it comes to Asian languages.


  • Easy to use
  • Can translate up to 500 words at a time


  • Can be very unreliable
  • Does not work with most Asian languages
