I am italian, so I have Google Chrome in Italian.

When I browse the web in languages that I don't know, I find very useful the auto-translation bar of google chrome.

The problem is that it translates the language to english and then to italian. Double automatic translation = unintelligible text.

There is a way to force translation to english, and not my language?

Don't think it's possible, but a quite good workaround is to install the offical extension called Google Translate. It will add a button in the rightmost corner which will translate the current page. If you then right-click this button and choose 'Options', you can set your default translating language.

Nice! But it overlaps with the default chrome translator – Magnetic_dud Feb 2 '12 at 9:16

Open a new tab in chrome and go to:


You will be able to manage it from there.

On chrome 30, it just contains informative text, there are no settings. – Magnetic_dud Oct 31 '13 at 0:17

Try right click anywhere on the page and choose "Translate to English"
