The Google Translate plugin is only available for Chrome browsers, and users download it from the Chrome Web Store. Mozilla Firefox users can install Google Translator for Firefox, which is available in Adds-Ons. Firefox requires a restart for the add-on to work.
To translate a word or a sentence, a user highlights it and right clicks the text to select the Translate this text with Google Translate option. By default, the tool tries to detect the language before translating to the targeted language. Chrome browsers have built-in translation tools to translate an entire website. The tool is also available in Gmail.
