What is What3words translator?
What3words Translator is an easy-to-use Firefox add-on that allows users to convert between latitude and longitude coordinates and the 3 word address system. It features a popup interface, automatic replacement of coordinates with 3 word addresses, and caching of translation results.
- Takes 3 word address input and converts to latitude, longitude
- Takes latitude and longitude input and converts to 3 word address
- Automatically opens tab showing location on maps when translating
- Configure add-on behaviour
- Automatic replacement of latitude, longitude to 3 word address in tabs - tested with google maps, and bing
- Caches translation results, making it is faster since there is no need to ask API again
Translation from coordinates to a 3 word address is performed similarly. Write the latitude and longitude in the bottom textbox (e.g "37.743413, 15.031307") and press enter.
The add-on settings can be accessed by clicking the arrow at the very bottom of the popup. Uncheck the first two check boxes if you do not want a new tab to open with the location on a map when you use the popup to make a translation.
Leave the last checkbox checked if you would like the add-on to automatically replace most instances of latitude, longitude in your tabs with a 3 word address. For example on google maps you will see "///beeline.scandalous.bruisers" instead of "37.743413, 15.031307"
What3words translator is risky to use as it requires a number of sensitive permissions that can potentially harm your browser and steal your data. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install What3words translator if you trust the publisher.
What3words translator has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.
