Problem: Lots of times happens when I'm watching a YouTube video that has its title, description, comments in a different languages but Edge insider fails to recognize the page has a foreign languages so it neither offers to translate the page nor does it let me choose "translate this page" from right-click menu because the option simply won't exist.

 

solution: 

1. add the "translate this page" as a Fixed option to the right-click menu. currently it only appears when it decides to.

2. add an ability to highlight a single sentence or line of text and then right-click on it and select "translate this". the translated result can appear as a nice and small fluent-design balloon next to it or above it.

Great suggestion, @HotCakeX.  How often does it feel like you needed the ability to translate something, but the option wasn't available?  Thanks - Elliot

Thank you, well a lot of times actually, i can say 70% of times.
web pages with mixed languages Also prevent the translation option from appearing.
