When I am reading a web page in French and want to look up a word that I don’t know, I open a new tab and use either Google translate or Reverso Dictionary to look up the word. The problem is that this process took time – I had to open a new tab, type a site address, type the word and then I get the translation. 2 days earlier I found an extension which eliminates all these time-consuming tasks – All I need to do is to highlight a word or a group of words and type ‘t’ on my keyboard – Voila, I see a small pop-up with the translation. The key board shortcut is configurable. This works so well that I look up many more words now than what I used to look up.
Here are 3 screenshots of what this little, yet very nice extension can do for you.
Here I have selected a part of the sentence in French.
Here I have selected a single word in French.
Here I have selected another word in French.
