Google allows its users to translate a foreign language website into any of the 40+ languages. There are many translation tools available for this purpose. However all of them are manual and you have to translate it for every webpage you are interested in. To address this difficulty Google has launched a new toolbar for internet explorer. With this new toolbar all websites that are in a language different from your browser’s default language would get automatically translated.
You can even translate the website in the language of your choice by just a single click. If you continue browsing foreign language web pages then it will translate it automatically in the default language.
The web pages containing dynamic contents such as Google Reader can also get translated in real time. So whenever the need of translation arises, just click on translate button in the Google toolbar and the entire page will get translated into default language. You can even choose any language from drop down menu and can set the default option through Toolbar Options.
How to change the default translation language?
1. In Google toolbar, click on wrench option, the Toolbar Option window will appear.
2. Right click anywhere and select Google Toolbar Options.
3. On the general tab, set the Toolbar language to a language of your choice.
After following these steps all pages are automatically translated to the language you have just chosen whenever you click on the Translate button.
