I used Translator for quite some time for translating both French and Russian into English. The basic features are great, and the options available for French are good, but despite general updates, the add-on hasn't stayed up-to-date with the updates to the services it uses, leaving it with no current functionality for Russian. I used to use IMTranslator through it for Russian, but now that directs you to a login page; the one-click functionality is gone there. PROMT is the only other option for Russian, but 90% of the time the PROMT-translated page won't even load. The worst part is that despite Google's translation service being available here, you can only use Translator to access _some_ of the languages that Google translates, and Russian is _not_ one of them.
Bottom line: I used to think Translator was pretty good (I still love the 1-click function!), but now for Russian it's become useless. If it were updated to include all of Google's real capabilities, I'd keep using it. I've switched to FoxLingo instead.
