How do I enable google translation without prompting?

I read a lot of texts in foreign language and clicking each time is driving me crazy.

Browsing the Settings might help you... – M.Bennett May 10 '13 at 22:40

You can go to Options -> Always translate (Language) to English. (note that you will have to do this once for each language, there is unfortunately no way to do this for all languages)

Exactly, I have common sense enough to check that but the first three options don't show up in my browser, Which Version is Yours? or Which OS? – ήλιος May 10 '13 at 23:02
@ήλιος, I'm seeing it in Chromium 11, (though I had to first (re-)check the Offer to translate… option in Settings, which somehow got turned off). Also, unless you are missing the options in every language (you can easily check by visiting different language versions of Wikipedia), then you may have turned translation off for that specific language. – Synetech May 13 '13 at 3:23

I realized this is only due to running in incongnito mode. Normal Running Keeps everything normal and above options are shown.
