Firefox Translations: Firefox's offline translate feature is making progress - gHacks Tech News
Firefox Translations, Firefox's privacy friendly built-in translate feature, has reached a new milestone with the release of a new add-on version.

The current link in this post goes to a year-old story about the online translation feature… here is the same site’s coverage of this week’s news - which is that there is now offline translation support: (i assume this is what OP actually meant to post). (edit: OP fixed the post’s link)

Here is a web page that loads their wasm translation engline and does the actual translation offline (and it does work in the stable release of Firefox). It’s irritating that the extension still requires a nightly firefox build, as I’d like to use it in my daily browsing but I don’t want to use nightly all the time.

I am sorry for this, I made a mistake. mistake noted, making/pinning new post. Change is made, post is now perfect.

it says it was published on May 29, 2021, so the article is from last year ?
also is this available on android ?


That is pretty cool, but is there also a selfhostable version with an easy API? Similar to Libre translate.

A system for live translations in chat without depending on external FAANG API would be nice.

see my other comment in this thread, it can translate offline now

I am sure that eventually we will have that. The fact that we have something like this from Mozilla, that runs offline, is insane.
