The Mozilla website hosts several add-ons that you can install to give the Firefox Web browser the ability to automatically translate Web pages written in a language other than your own. Some of these add-ons include FoxLingo, BabelFish Instant Translation, Translator and gTranslate. These add-ons make use of Web-based translation services such as Babel Fish and Google Translate. If you have installed a translation add-on for Firefox and find that it does not produce the desired experience when browsing foreign websites, disable it via the Firefox Add-ons menu.
