No Auto-Translate Feature in Brave Browser

Although, I must say that Brave is a very good browser as of my experience. It has a very good browsing speed, good privacy security, nice versatility of features, but there are still some things which are lacking in Brave including the auto page translate feature. This feature was there in Chrome and it is really important for me and many users. Whenever I go to a page which is written in some unknown language, the auto translate feature is really necessary at that moment to translate the page to English, but the feature is lacking in Brave which is really disappointing indeed. It is a very basic feature which is there in every web browser excluding Brave. Many people have complained about this feature but I don’t think Brave does seem to care. When I took a first glance at the browser, I thought that this may be the best browser for me, but now I think, Chrome was better as it at least had an auto translate feature in it. Will request you to add an auto translate feature when so many people are already demanding for it.
Thank you for your hassle which you are going to take.

Just for clarification, you do know that you can translate pages using Google Translate extension in Brave. Do you have some specific reason for not using it other than privacy, sending data to Google etc.

And yeah auto-translate feature would be cool, I don’t know if it’s already there. @Rethanis


Brave doesn’t provide such an option as of the moment, unfortunately. Users are only given the opportunity to install a third-party extension (Google Translate).

Genuinely, i find it a glaringly missed opportunity for them not to have addressed this with the last update! The extensions okay, but there’s only so much someone can take having to hit the top right “translate” button before reverting back to Chrome as the main browser.
I really want Brave to be my daily driver but the lack of what I feel is a simple and necessary feature has me shuffling back to Googs…


Yeah. This is really a deal-breaker for those of us in language limbo. I have Google Translate extension installed but have to manually translate pages and it takes 3 clicks to do that each time. Every time I go to a new link on a foregin langauge site, I have to do these 3 clicks. UX hell. Not sure why this would be so hard to implement auto translate. Let’s make this happen. I want to stay Brave

You know, that is not what you call as auto-translate. it is a kind of semi-auto-translate feature which is not what I want. It takes a lot of time and 3 clicks to translate a page in brave which ain’t worth it, and suppose if you have all the pages in a different language in a website, will you really keep on translating the page every time you go to another? Of course no, it doesn’t make any sense.

Edit: I have stopped using brave around a month ago and now I have shifted to Edge. Reason being that Brave also had a lot of other problems, which I cannot explain in detail right now. In short, Brave has a lot of things to improve on for now.

I do genealogy in several languages, as much as I like learning languages, when doing research it is much faster to have auto-translate. Since Brave seems to be a fork of Chrome or at least uses the apk, then implementing “the always translate” feature that the chrome extension for Google translate uses, should be easy. I installed the extension, it worked on the first page of a website, but failed on other pages of the same site.

I found this extension
It works very well for me, I also use it on firefox and I see that it works on chromium as well
