Translator already works in Firefox 92, but only for one language

Translator in Firefox 92

When they launched Firefox 89, one of the novelties that was discovered in the new Nightly (91) was that the ground was already being prepared so that the fox browser could translate web pages natively. In its day we tried it and we did not see anything, we could not make the extension work, but it seems that it can be activated in Firefox 92. The latest stable version is 90, so there are still eight weeks left for what is currently on the channel Nightly see the light.

Just like we explain last June, what we have to do to see what Mozilla is up to is access about: config and mark as "false" the option extensions.translations.disabled, with the main difference that, after restarting the browser, now the translator yes it appears. It does it the same as in any other browser in which we install an extension to translate or it already brings it by default: it shows us a bar from where we can confirm that we want to translate or not and some more options.

Firefox 92 is coming in September

The problem is that, at least in my tests, I I couldn't find a way to translate it into Spanish. When we click "Translate", it starts working, something we can't say it does quickly, to the surprise that the translated text is now in English. A practical joke for those who do not know that language either. If someone figures out how to do it, comment and add the solution to the article.

At the moment, the only thing that catches my attention for the better is the icon of the extension and the animations, something that right now we will have time to look closely because, as we have mentioned, it takes a long time to translate the pages if we compare it with other browsers. If in the end they do not back down, the possibility of translating will begin to be available in the stable version in the Firefox 92 that will arrive in September. Hopefully by then I translate into Spanish.

    First, to clarify that it is a red panda and not a Fox, and secondly, what is the engine that it uses to translate? (In previous versions I remember having tried it and for example with google it did not work, with others it gave the option to translate but it did not

      I'm not sure, but looking through the settings it says "Google." That value can be modified, but I'm not sure it will work with others.

      The thing about the animal is "fire fox", that is, "fire fox."

      A greeting.

        I reiterate Red Panda in the link talks about who generated it to the logo / journal / firefox-logo

          A "firefox" is actually a pretty red panda, but it didn't seem like the right image to me. The only concept I'd come up with that I was happy with was this, inspired by a Japanese painting of a fox.

          Therefore, the logo is based on a fox, and the first version had the tail of fire.

          A greeting.
