[Tip] Enable New “Translator Bubble UI” in Google Chrome

Here is a small but useful tip for Google Chrome web browser users. If you use Google Chrome, you might be aware of its built-in "Page Translator" feature which offers automatic translation facility if the current webpage is not in your preferred language.

This feature shows a small translation toolbar also called "Infobar" at the top of the webpage which can be used to translate the webpage in your own language.

In newer versions of Chrome, the developer team has introduced a new option to replace this translation infobar with a new and advanced bubble UI. By default this new UI is disabled but you can enable it using Chrome's advanced configuration page i.e. chrome://flags page.

Following is a preview of the new bubble UI of page translator feature:

You can see in the above screenshot, the new bubble UI of translator looks more advanced and clean compared to the old toolbar.

If you want to enable this new feature in Google Chrome, check out following simple steps:

1. Open Google Chrome web browser and type chrome://flags/ in addressbar and press Enter. It'll open the advanced configuration page.

2. Now press "Ctrl+F" keys together to launch find box and type translate in the find box.

It'll directly go to following option:

Enable the new Translate UX. Mac, Windows, Linux, Chrome OS
Enable the new Translate bubble UX is offered instead of the infobar. #enable-translate-new-ux

4. Now click on "Relaunch Now" button and it'll restart Google Chrome web browser.

Once Google Chrome opens, try to open a different language webpage and you'll see the new translate bubble UI in Google Chrome.
