How to change language on SKULabs webpages Chrome, Safari, Microsoft Edge and Firefox

Updated over a week ago

While SKULabs don't support a built in language locale, we would like to help you by using some tricks and tips from your browser that can translate the page for you.

There are extensions that can be used to auto translate pages for you, but we would not recommend any to prevent any issues of abuse. Steps provided bellow are meant to be made into the browser if not third-party app or extension needed.

Translate webpages in Chrome

When you come across a page written in a language you don't understand, you can use Chrome to translate the page.

  1. On your computer, open Chrome.

  2. Go to a webpage written in another language.

  3. At the top, click Translate.

  4. Chrome will translate the webpage this one time.

Not working? Try refreshing the webpage. If it’s still not working, right-click anywhere on the page. Then, click Translate to [Language].

Change your default page translation settings

By default, Chrome offers to translate pages written in a language you don't understand.

Translate webpages in Safari

If a webpage can be translated into one of your preferred languages, you can have Safari translate it.

  1. In the Safari app, go to the webpage you want to translate.

    If the webpage can be translated, the Smart Search field displays the Translate button .

  2. Click the Translate button, then choose a language.

    If you think the translation might need improvement, click the Translate button , then choose Report Translation Issue. The translation is sent to Apple for review.

If a language isn’t available, you may be able to make more languages available in the Translate menu by adding the languages in Language & Region preferences. Once you add a language to your list of preferred languages, if a translation is available to that language, it will appear in the Translate menu in Safari.

Note: The availability of translations and the number of languages that can be translated may vary by country or region.

Translate webpages in Microsoft Edge

Microsoft Edge will automatically prompt you to translate a webpage when when the page you're opening is in a language other than those listed under your preferred languages in settings.

  1. Open a webpage in Microsoft Edge. The browser automatically detects the language of the page and a menu appears asking you to confirm that you want to translate the page.

  2. Do any of the following:

    • In the Translate to list, choose the language you want to translate the page to. The default is the language you've set for Microsoft Edge.

    • To translate the page, click Translate.

    • To always automatically translate from the source language, select the Always translate from [Language] check box.

    • To skip translation, in the list on the lower right, select Not now to skip translation or Never translate [Language] to never have the panel appear when you go to a page using that language.

  3. On side of the address bar, you'll briefly see the status showing that the page has been translated. If you select the translate icon in the address bar, the menu that appears also shows the status.

Manually translate a webpage

If you've set Microsoft Edge to never translate a specific language, you'll still be able to translate it at any time. Just select the translate icon in the address bar and the menu will appear.

After the page has been translated, you can translate the page again to a different language or to restore the page to its original language.

To translate the page again to a different language:

  1. On the address bar, select the translate icon .

  2. In the Translate to menu, select the language you want.

  3. Select Translate.

Translate a webpage in Firefox

Firefox has no translation feature by default. You can, however, add the number of languages you want to. To add a new language:

  1. Click on the menu button on the top right corner of your browser

  2. Go to Preferences and click on ‘Choose in the Language and Appearance section’.

  3. Select any language you want and click OK.
