and you do NOT need to give up your favorite browser.

Having the translator as part of the browser itself, as in Google Chrome,
speeds up the process
of translation.

It is machine translation, so imperfect.  If you see something that does not
make sense, hover your mouse
over the translated sentence, and you will see the original.

Chrome will also translate the emails that you receive in a foreign
language.  all you need to do is open them up in a new, enlarged window.
