Translation not working in Linux Mint 18.3

Description of the issue: The translation option (rightclick >> translate to Dutch) does not work. I get a small pop-up window that days it is translating, but nothing happens. I really like Brave-browser, but as I am Dutch and living in Hungary, not very good at speaking Hungarian, without translation Brave-Browser is useless for me, I use website-translation several times a day.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3. The problem can be reproduced by rightclicking on a website in any foreign language, and selecting “Translate to xxxxxxx”

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!): No translation whatsoever comes up.

Expected result: Normally (in Chrome) the page is displayed in the required language.

Reproduces how often: Brave never translates, so this is a constant problem, not a single occurring problem.

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu): I am using Linux Mint 18.3, and Brave Versie 0.62.51 Chromium: 73.0.3683.103

Additional Information: No additional information.

Welcome to the Community @Bhakti.

It’s simply because it’s not fully implemented. If not changed, will be available within 0.65.x release

Also, it’s better to search for existing thread first. With “Latest post” sorting, you’ll find many similar posts. :wink:

Thank you for your reply, I did search the threads (by hand, not by search-function), sorry for the redundant question. Is there any idea when translations will be implemented? Without translations-option I have no other option than to switch back to Chromium, and I like Brave a lot better, amazing speed and no more annoying adds.


@Bhakti if not changed. :point_up: For now you can install an extension as a “workaround”.
