Google's gone one step further in making automatic translation easier.
Now If Google Toolbar’s default language is set to one of their supported languages, users can use the new Word Translator feature to hover over a word with the mouse and get an automatic instant translation. If users want Toolbar to translate into a different language, they can change it in the Toolbar Options menu.
If you’re a multi-lingual user who just needs certain words translated, hovering is a lot quicker than searching word-by-word on Google Translate.
The new Word Translator feature is available for Internet Explorer and Firefox. For Google Chrome users, automatic page translation is already built in, and Google is working to build more Translate features.
