Google Translate for Google+

Monday, August 29, 2011 | 4:39 PM

We've heard from a lot of Google+ users wanting an easier way to understand posts written in other languages, so we thought we should do something about that.

We just introduced on Google+, a new Chrome extension, Google Translate for Google+, that uses the power of Google Translate to automatically translate any post or comment into more than 50 languages.

Once you've installed the extension, refresh Google+ and you'll see Translate links next to posts and comments. Click the links to instantly see translations.


You can get the extension from the Chrome Web Store here:

Note: This extension is currently experimental as we figure out the best way to integrate translation into the Google+ community. So please give us your feedback in the comments, or by clicking the “Send Feedback” button on Google+.
