Full Answer

Google Chrome can automatically translate websites into the user's preferred language. To turn on automatic translation, click the menu button in the upper-right corner of the Chrome browser. Select Settings, and then click Show Advanced Settings. In the Languages section of the menu that appears, check the box labeled Offer to Translate Pages That Aren't in a Language You Read. If automatic translation is off, it is still possible to translate a single Web page by right-clicking anywhere on the page and selecting Translate to English.

To translate a website using a different browser, enter the address of the site to be translated at Translate.Google.com. Alternatively, install a browser add-on that automatically translates whole Web pages or selected text, such as Google Translator for Firefox. For Internet Explorer, download and install Google Toolbar from Toolbar.Google.com. After installing the toolbar, click the Tools icon in the upper-right corner of the browser, select Manage Add-Ons, and then select Toolbars and Extensions. Select Google Toolbar, click Enable to turn it on, navigate to a Web page, and click the Translate button on the toolbar to translate the page.
