Opera usually is more efficient with resources than Chrome...

There's no point Opera adding translator plugin/service.. as it would most likely use Google anyway, or Yandex etc.

Not to mention that such a plugin in Chrome is very dubious from privacy point of view - and most likely Google harvests the data for marketing purposes as they do read every mail in Gmail accounts.

Get this open source translator:


Hover, click or select to translate (with text-to-speech). Translator.
Translate word (or text selection) from any language to the language of your choice by pointing or clicking at it.

Also you can (enable in options):

text-to-speech reverse translate: from your own language to the language of your choice type and translate in a popup copy translation to clipboard


"Your data on all websites":
TransOver needs to be able to read any word on a page - "Your data ..." - in order to translate it. On any website you want it working - "... on all websites".

"Your tabs and browsing activity":
Required for language autodetect, so that TransOver knows what language to translate from (details http://code.google.com/chrome/extensions/tabs.html#method-detectLanguage).


Change google translate API url. The old one seems to be getting blocked more and more.
1.41 Fix regression. T&T popup wasn't showing translation.
