  7. STOP PUTTING UP "HIGHER THAN NORMAL TRAFFIC" NOTIFICATIONS!!!!

    STOP PUTTING UP "HIGHER THAN NORMAL TRAFFIC" NOTIFICATIONS!!!!

    THEY ARE REALLY ANNOYING!

    Some of us in this world come from one country and live in another country. We have to deal with languages that need translating all the time.
    We don't want our workload to be ever bigger because we have to keep typinf in barely readable codes because every new tab we open comes up with the message about higher than normal traffic. Sometimes we have to open many tabs.

    if this is a problem for you then maybe either stop offering the translating service (this never happens on…

  16. Please add the ' Cancel text translation' option.

    After I select a sentence and press ' Text Translation ' I can translate the sentence. However, there is no option to cancel the translation. Please add the ' Cancel text ' option.

  19. popup translate

    please check this chrome extention:TransOver. as an esl learner transover'S translate method is absolutly benefiticial.
    i like to read the text in English language. but people like me often struggle with word's meaning.

    instead disturbing the reading process with looking at the extentional dictionary program or website, I feel really comfortable with instant popup on text. so that I can keep going to read without any disturbing concentration things. I am insist about that you should add transover's concept in to the translator for edge.
