Go to the Chrome Web Store, and search and install Readlang Web Reader.

Using Readlang

Readlang can be set to translate any word on a web page from English to, say Spanish or many other languages.


A student doing research can read the web - and use Readlang when necessary to quickly get a word in their native language without needing a separate window for a dictionary, or Google translate.
