Intro to Google Translation Toolbar
Google Translator is an instant text and website translation tool from Google. This great tool can translate a word, sentence, or an entire website to 51 different languages. If there is a website you want to read, but it is not in your language, you can translate it with Google’s online translation service here.
Google also has a toolbar for Firefox and Internet Explorer called the Google Translator Toolbar. It is a very nice thing as it can simplify your internet activities.
The toolbar is very easy to use as once installed, you can just roll your mouse cursor over a particular word on a web page and you will see the meaning of that word displayed in your own language. If you want to translate an entire web page, click on Translate button on the toolbar and in a few seconds you will see the translated page.
See, how easy it is to use Google Translation Toolbar on a website and to translate other language websites into your own language.
