How to translate a website in 2022 (9 easy ways)

Fortunately, there are plenty of resources for translating websites. When you need to translate a site that you’re browsing, you can use a few essential tools to accomplish your goals.

Translating a web page is a handy skill to have! With the wealth of tools available, you should make the translation process a smooth one.

Because the translation button on Eindtijdnieuws does not always work well, I have decided to offer this article as a solution for foreign visitors and for those who do not understand Dutch.

How to translate a website

In this article, we’ll share several ways you can do this using different browsers and devices.
Let’s get started!


1  How to translate a website in Google Chrome

Translating a website using Google Chrome is pretty straightforward.
When you land on a page that isn’t in English, click on the Translate this page button in the address bar to open a popup. Then, select the option for English.

Or, if you prefer, you can right-click the text you’d like translated and choose Translate to English.
That’s all you need to do. You can repeat either of these methods as you navigate through the website.

2  How to translate a website in Firefox

Unlike Chrome, Firefox doesn’t have a built-in translation feature. To translate websites using Firefox, you’ll need to get started by adding a Firefox language extension.
Mozilla recommends the To Google Translate extension.

Click on the Add to Firefox button to install the extension. Next, you’ll see the Options screen, where you can select specific languages.
If you need to translate different languages, you can leave the Translate Text field set to Auto. When you’ve set your preferences, click on Save.

The next time you visit a site in a foreign language, you should be able to right-click on the text and choose Translate this page. The text should open in Google Translate, ready for you to read in your preferred language.


3  How to translate a website in Safari 

Safari’s translation feature is in beta, and it doesn’t have as many languages available as other browsers. However, you should still be able to translate many of the web pages you encounter.
If Safari can translate a web page for you, it will display a Translate button in the Smart Search field. 


4  How to translate a website in Microsoft Edge 

You can translate a page in Microsoft Edge using Translate for Microsoft Edge, which comes installed in the browser.
Similar to Chrome, the browser should present you with a prompt when you open a page.

The address bar will briefly show the word Translated when the process is ready.
If you would like Edge to generate a translation each time you encounter this language automatically, you can check the Always translate pages from the box.
If the popup doesn’t appear, you can also click on the Translate icon in the address bar.
Clicking this icon will additionally give you the option to translate pages in this language automatically.


5  How to translate a whole website with Google Translate 

If you’d like to translate an entire website at once, you can use Google Translate.
Type or paste the URL of the website you’d like translated into the text box on the left. You should see a clickable version of the URL appear in the text box on the right.
Select the target language from above the text box on the right. Once you click on the link, you should see a fully translated version of the website!

You can toggle between the translated and original versions using the button at the top right of that website.
You can also swap between languages using this toolbar. As you can see, translating an entire website can be a quick and easy process! 


6  How to automatically translate a page in Chrome 

If you frequently find yourself on websites in foreign languages, you may want Chrome to translate them automatically. You can enable this feature by clicking on the three dots at the top right of the browser window and choosing Settings.
From here, you can navigate to Advanced > Languages. You may need to click the arrow to the right of ‘Language’ to see all of the options.

There are two ways to set up automatic translations. If you turn on the Offer to translate pages that aren’t in a language you read option, you’ll see a popup offering a translation whenever you visit a page that isn’t in your defined language.

If there are languages other than English that you’d prefer not to have translated, you can add those here. To do this, select Add languages. Scroll to or search for the desired language and tick the box next to it.
Click on the Save button after choosing your target languages. When you navigate to a website in any of your listed languages, you won’t get the translation popup on your screen.


7  TranslatePress

TranslatePress has a free website translation widget that you can use to translate any website on the Internet just by entering a URL.

TranslatePress supports over 100 different languages! All you need to do is:

Go to the translation tool page. Choose the original language of the website (or you can let the tool detect this). The original language of is Dutch.
Choose the destination language into which you want to translate the website’s content.
Enter the URL – for example, or – of the page (or website) that you want to translate. And click the big Translate button.

From there, you’ll see the translated version of the page and you can navigate around just like you normally would. This tool works great!


8  How to translate a website on an Android mobile device 

Translating a website on a mobile device using Chrome is different from the procedure for desktop devices! Instead of a popup, you’ll see a bar at the bottom of the screen with your language options.
Once you select English, you should be able to read the text.

However, if you don’t see this bar at the bottom, you can also click on the three dots at the top right of the screen in order to open a menu. Then select Translate, and you should be able to view the text in English.


9  How to translate a website on an iPhone 

Next, let’s look at how to translate a site on an iPhone using Safari.
When you visit a page in a foreign language, you can click on the aA button in the address bar to open a menu. There, you should see the Translate to English option.
Note: if this is the first time you’ve performed this action, you may receive a prompt asking you to enable the beta. Also, keep in mind that the number of languages Safari can translate from is somewhat limited compared to other browsers.
