Microsoft Edge now includes a Translator, old extension cannot be installed

almost 2 years ago by IanDorfman

Users of preinstalled web browsers on Windows 10 will no longer need to go out of their way to access text and web page translation. Microsoft has now integrated its Translator service into its recently rebuilt Edge web browser.

Just as Google has a built-in translator for its flagship Chrome web browser alongside an add-on for its separate Google Translate service, Microsoft Edge had a dedicated Microsoft Translator alongside its Bing Translator. However, as of the new Chromium Microsoft Edge's launch, the Microsoft Translator extension's functionality is now built in to the browser.

If you do not wish to use Microsoft Edge's built-in translator, other translation services available include the previously mentioned and popular Google Translate alongside the likes of DeepL Translator.
