Hi @adamhurwitz,
This is a known issue. If you want to be able to translate entire pages, you need to install the Google Translate extension.


Thank you @Aa-ron. Do you have a link to the original issue filed so that I may stay up to date on it’s progress?

Re: Google Translate extension.

The extension does not translate the page contents as expected on the example link above which could be a potential issue with Brave or the extension.
