Some days ago, I did something with Google Chrome but totally forgot it. So now, every time I go to a non-English website, Chrome always offers me to translate it into English. How can I turn off this offer?
Yes, maybe you did turn on the option ‘Offer to translate pages that aren’t in a language read’. Actually, this option is default on Google Chrome new installation. But it is so noisy, especially for people with small screen.
To turn off this option, you can do as below. But because I don’t know your Google Chrome so I will assume that you use latest version of Google Chrome (.i.e version 19.0).
Step 1. On Chrome main window, click on the wrench icon, and then choose Settings near bottom of the drop-down menu.
Step 2. On the bottom of the Setting window, click on Show advance settings…
Step 3. Then many options will be un-hide for you to tweak your Google Chrome. Scroll-down to line named Language and then click on check box of the option ‘Offer to translate pages that aren’t in a language read’ to clear it.
Close the Settings window. You will no longer see that offer again.
SOLUTION 2. You can turn it off on language-by-language basis. That way if it’s annoying you because you’re bilingual and you don’t need it to help you with Spanish, you can turn that off. But when you end up on a Chinese website and could use its help, it can still be there for you. (Thank Josh Estelle about this suggestion.)
Step 3. Scroll-down to line named Language and then click on the button Languages and spell-checker settings.
Step 4. On the Language screen, click on Add.
Step 5. On the pop-up dialog named Add Language, choose your desired language and then click OK.
Step 6. On the Language screen, you can see the language you have chosen is in the list. Click OK to apply the setting. That’s all
