Google Chrome

The web is made up of terrific content from all over the world and sometimes the content you want to read is written in a different language. Thankfully, Google Chrome has built-in support for the Google Translate service, which will automatically translate the page into a language of your choice.

If you visit a website with Google Chrome and it is written in a different language, the browser will automatically display a prompt asking if you wish to translate the page into your default language as shown below.

If you click on the Translate button, Google will send the URL to the Google Translate service, which will cause the page's contents to be translated to your default language. This can be shown in the site below, which has been translated from Dutch to English.
