Updating my review due to feedback from dev; see below. 5 stars now! Will translate in same tab. Thx.
My original review.
Clicking toolbar button opens new tab with translated page instead of translating same page.
If you would prefer that it translates in the same tab just press shift and then click on the Translate button in your addon bar. The settings menu will pop up and you can choose how you would like translations to work.
Glad you got your problem fixed!
This is great! But please, make a toolbar button!
This feature is coming... In the meantime you can right click on the addon bar and click "Customize". Then simply drag the Translate This button to the toolbar. It works, but isn't as pretty as I would like it to be.
Would rate as 5, if not for a small issue I encountered (explained below.)
I have a few japanese friends on facebook but my japanese is useless so I wanted a quick way of translating things in my feed without having to copy the text, go to google translate & paste it.
Was expecting that it would load a new tab to google translate with the translation, but it actually translates the selection in the page, replacing the existing text, which is even better.
I've only used it for 10 minutes, but I encountered an issue. It seemed to translate most japanese fine, but when I translated "ダーリンは外国人" it comes up with "the inter... foreigners" - but when going to google.com/translate, that text translates to darling foreigner.. so rating as a 4. Otherwise it would be a 5 based on its ease of use (which is great.)
I hope to see that bug ironed out, and for this to be a verified addon! its the only non-verified addon i have installed.. plus I signed up just to post this review! Thanks for the addon.
EDIT: Just wanted to mention I am using FireFox 6.0.2 Portable and didn't encounter any problems installing it as another user said they had.
Wow, I'm glad you found the addon so useful!
I will look into the bug, hopefully it is something simple that I haven't noticed yet.
This is great. Please make it work for Fx 6.0.2. I get "it couldn't install because it couldn't modify the right file"
To tell you the truth I have encountered this problem on one of my test PC's. However I can't replicate it and I can't figure out why it is happening.
I will continue to try and locate the source of this bug :)
Sorry correction for suggestion 1 and 2 I meant right/left click on your icon not right/left click on the main page.
1. No context menu make mouse left click on your icon to translate selected text.
2. Make mouse right click on your icon to translate whole page.
3, Toolbar Icon to reflect language flag e.g show British flag instead of your icon when set to en.
4. Add settings as options in add on manager.
5. Make a toolbar button ( I know you can move it but it doesn't look like a toolbar button like the default Firefox buttons).
