in the address bar type "wr", followed by a space and the word to translate and press ENTER. Example: "wr banana" will translate the word "banana" according to the customizable extension's paramenters. The translation languages can be specified in the extension's settings.

In order to invert the default languages, use just a minus sign before the word. Example: "wr shoes" will translate shoes as specified in the extensions parameters (eg. from English to French) "wr - shoes" will invert the translation languages (e.g. from French to English)

If you want to override the parameters for a single search, you can specify the languages in the address bar. wr -[from][to] <word-to-translate>


  • "wr -de gemuse" : translate "gemuse" from German to the default language
  • "wr -fren chaise" : translate "chaise" from French to English
User reviews
It would be good, if it worked... It shows itself in the suggestions of the search bar, but it doesn't load any link... Edit: yes, now it works. It opens the toast page. Yesterday it didn't work in the sense that it didn't open any page after writing "wr toast" and pressing enter, it was just making the search bar delete the text in itself and then... nothing. Anyway, now it works just fine. Thanks for everything.
