Google Adds RealTime “Word” Translation to Any Website in 41 Languages Including Arabic

20 Apr, 2010

Google is pushing further  to support  Arabic and  other 41 International languages in its quest to further increase its Internationalization revenues. In the Arabic front we reported recently about Google’s Tashkeel,  yesterday Google announced a new step to support Arabic online with an announcement to added Google automatic translation “word” to any website using google toolbar, beating Yamli’s web-based real-time translator tool that uses Google translation API which needs to be accessed  by opening a new site and moving a step ahead of Microsoft’s Translator widget.

The service works if you hover over a word with your mouse to get the automatic instant translation. The  feature is available for Internet Explorer and Firefox. On Google Chrome, automatic page translation is already built in.

The new Translate feature is available in all international versions of Toolbar, including English, and the translation service supports 41 different languages: Albanian, Arabic, Bulgarian, Catalan, Chinese, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Estonian, Filipino, Finnish, French, Galician, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latvian, Lithuanian, Maltese, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian and Vietnamese.

You can Install the latest Toolbar version from here.
