@Drew1903 I only see the gear on msn.com.
I don't see a translation icon in the address bar and I'm not seeing a prompt on foreign language pages like this one: https://peru.com/futbol/seleccion/seleccion-peruana-luce-camiseta-alterna-bicolor-copa-america-2019-...

@Anoop_Gopikumar I can confirm the reason it doesn't work is because at work I'm on the dev channel which does not have the feature. At home I'm on the canary channel and going to the same website I used as an example in my previous post Edge immediately offers it to me.
So in short the problem is MS in their welcome back page after an update tell dev channel users about a feature that doesn't exist in their build yet.

Ok, Dev & Canary are not the same. Dennis, you're right, the gear is only on MSN sites, regardless of location or language. However, this is Canary and the same does not appear with Dev. I did nothing to see it in Canary except, go to a non-English site.
And it did immediately translate the entire page to English upon my request.

It has to be there, never mind what colour it is.
Anyway, I want to point out something. Not only is translation with its icon show with Edge for pages, BUT, there is another ability in Edge that, so far, we are not seeing in Edge C. That is its ability to translate highlighted pieces of text in a Rt Clk menu, Translate text into English. This, also, needs to exist or be kept in Edge C. See the snip below of Edge.

yes, you are right it was developed for Microsoft edge. As Microsoft edge dev copy your Microsoft edge programs and favourite sites you can use it sometimes but Microsoft Edge dev is still under development. Personally, I think now they only focus on technical development and improving it's potential. @AlexanderLilov

I was 'talking' with a MS engineer some more today about this. I can confirm that it is now working just fine in both Canary AND Dev. Go to a site in a language other than your own, in either, & the icon IS on the address bar & the language selection 'window' appears. However, it will not select, highlight text & have translate in the Rt Clk menu; Edge can do this; rather than the entire page.

@amitkun I tried a couple of websites, for example https://www.anandabazar.com/ which is a popular Bengali daily. Edge doesn't trigger translation notification on this website. To test if this was Bengali language specific, I also tried https://eisamay.indiatimes.com/ which successfully triggers the translation notification. So it may be something specific with AnandaBazar.

Ich nutze den Translator schon länger. Hatte ihn über edge://flags/ aktiviert. Ich hatte mal ein Post in einem englischen mit Deepl von Deutsch ins Englische übersetzt. Anschließend hatte ich den Text mit dem Google Translator und dann mit dem Edge Translator wieder ins Deutsche. Während der Google Translator einen ganz anderen Text wiedergab, war es mit dem Edge Translator besser. Ich nutze ihn, weil mein Englisch sehr schlecht ist. Mit einen Alter von 61 Jahren lohnt es sich für mich nicht mehr Englisch zu lernen.

Hey, @Ted Williams thanks for the feedback. I tried this page and Edge offered a prompt to translate. would request you to try 2 options.
1. Right click on the page to bring up the context menu. Choose to "translate" from there.
2. Go to edge://settings/languages. Check if German shows up there. If it does ensure "Offer to translate pages in this language is selected." if you wish to see the prompt for all German pages.
Hope this helps!

He doesn't always offer that. You may have to right-click on the website to do this. Then the page is translated. The default language for the first call is English, so that you click on the Translator icon in the address bar and select the language of your choice.
06-03-2019 02:10 AM
@Ted Williams , I visited the page and Edge prompted me to translate. Could you just do one of theis and check once again

This, already, exists as part of Edge. It is done with Add notes. And it is one of the list of items most of us consider "Must haves" & "Keepers". We are confident the Edge team is hearing our loud, collective voice & wants. Hopefully, this & more will show up in due course in Edge C. Though, can't be soon enough ;)
In the meantime...
This can sort of be done with Snip & Sketch which, also, offers sharing, same as Add notes. Of course, using S&S is a tad more involved than having Add notes. Add notes is such a nice Feature:exclamation_mark:

I'm sorry to say you have a ways to go yet. I went to the front page of an old customer's site, and told Edge-dev to translate to English. The words may be English but in the wrong order.
Having a decent translation facility would have been handy as their support guys used to post issues to Atlassian in Norwegian. Still, I'm outa there now.

Translate is not working here on this page in Edge Dev. Have tried several times and several different ways....
Also, I do have the Tracking Protection set to "Strict", but I've tried changing that and it still does not translate. I have also sent this in through the smiley dude....
Have also tried this in Edge Can as well and not working...
