Coming Soon To Your Dolphin: Dolphin Translate Helps You Read in 58 Languages
Have you ever come across a web page in foreign language and didn’t understand a single word?
Well, here’s the solution — Dolphin translate Add-on takes care of that for you. It supports 58 languages so there is a pretty good chance that the languages you speak would be supported. It uses Google translate to do the job of language translation.
Here’s some screenshots on what the user interface looks like:

(the dropdown menu will show a list of 58 other languages)
As a native speaker of Malaysian (Malay), I decided to put the Add-on to the test. I tested translation from Malay to English. The translation was from Wikipedia featuring the McDonnell XF-85 Goblin fighter aircraft from World War 2. The translation of this whole page literally took two seconds — no really, it took two actual seconds and not just a matter of speech.
Accuracy of translation: Great! Translated directly to English the highlighted areas in bold reads:
Peranan = Role
Asal-usul kebangsaan = National Origin
Pengeluar = Make
Penerbangan Pertama =First Flight
Status = Status
Nombor dibina = Number built
Kos program = Program cost
