Note for Opera and Safari users: After installation you need to refresh the page once for the translation bubble to appear.
Does the extension have an option page?
No, currently, there is no option page for the translator.

What is Google Translate?
Google Translate is a multilingual service provided by Google Inc. to translate written text from one language into another. It supports 90 languages. For more information check this Wikipedia page.
Why after installation the panel is empty on some pages?
This is due to "Content-Security-Policy" on some pages. You need to refresh the page to let the extension manipulate "Content-Security-Policy" to allow translate.google.com.
Why does "Dictionary Anywhere" is not working in the Firefox's Reading Mode?
“Dictionary Anywhere” is a WebExtension. WebExtensions in general do not have access to the following pages:
- Web sores pages like addons.mozilla.org for Firefox, chrome.google.com for Chrome and addons.opera.com for Opera
- Internal pages like about:blank, about:addons and chrome://extensions
- Extension pages like reader view on Firefox
Unfortunetly this is a limitation of the API and there is no workaround for it.
