If using Chrome to browse a site that is not in English, a dialogue box will appear and ask, "Would you like to translate this page?" From this prompt the desired language can be selected. Google Translate is a free tool, and users don't need to pay anything to translate any amount of material. However, this service has its drawbacks and is not entirely accurate. One may also utilize a pay-service such as UnBabel, a translation service that improves the computer-generated translation by adding a human editor in the final stages in order to improve accuracy.

The Frankfurter Allegemeine, sometimes abbreviated as F.A.Z., has never been fully translated into English, either in print or online. In the year 2000, due to a partnership between F.A.Z. and the International Herald Tribune, an eight-page English edition of the paper was distributed along with print copies of the IHT in Luxembourg, Germany, and Austria. This publication may no longer be available.
