Allows Google Translate™ selected text by pressing ANY key or mouse button..
Screencast demo: https://youtube.com/GTranslateWinS
To translate selected text into a language of your choice just press ESC
key (default) and you are done! The Google Translate™ window is opened with the result of translation and optionally automatically listened. All subsequent selected text translation requests
will go in the same window, moving it at the top of windows stack. If nothing is selected on a page the ESC
key works as a view toggler, moving the Google Translate™ window under the translation source window
and back at the top again or switching between tabs if the Google Translate™ and translation source tabs
are in the same window.
(spelled "Escape") key is usually found in the top left corner
of a keyboard and may be changed for any other key in the extension Options. Note that in some environments your key
may interfere with shortcuts set for the environment. For example, if you used to copy selected text
shortcut obviously it is not recommended to set neither Ctrl
for this extension key
as that immediately initiates translation
of the selected text.
Above pressing the ESC
key optionally you have three more ways to initiate translation:
• Press ANY key or mouse button.
• Click on the pop-up button, which appears near selected text
• Click on the relative right click context menu entry
The "translate into" languages are mirrored from the Google Translate™ website at the moment of opening the extension Options window. The language of the translation source text
is detected automatically by the Google Translate™. Another words, all the Google Translate™ current languages are supported
as the Google Translate™ opened by this extension is a regular browser window
you can resize it, move in any corner of the screen, fix at the top of windows or even move to another monitor! This is the main difference between this extension and most of the Firefox extensions / add-ons based on the Google Translate™ which open translation results
in their own panels or pop-ups. Also, the GTranslateWinS has twins at the Opera and google chrome browser
