/* Addon status: Discontinued */ Thanks to all for testing! :)

HT is a friendly user interface to Google translation server. Forget about copying and pasting words: save your time! Even text selection and clicks are not needed anymore.

All what you need for first time - to get to used to it :)

When this addon could be useful for u?

  • you probably have elementary knowledge of foreign language, but need to get fast translation of specified words / sentences sometimes;
  • you prefer to view web-page in original language without complete translation of page;
  • you meet multi-language content in same page ( like comments for popular thread ) and other ...

How it works? Imagine what every text word on web-page located inside invisible rectangle.

Great addon! Please add possibility to to switch to dark backround and light font. I am using Dark Reader - dark mode for every website and white backround of the translation window is hurting my eyes. Thank you. EDIT: added another star for dark mode support
