While browsing the web you can come across with documents and websites which are in a language unknown to you.
As a result, you end up using google translate or a piece of software that can translate the text in your native language or a language you can understand.
When it comes to websites of foreign language google chrome automatically suggest you to translate the website in your native language.
But when it comes to pdf and other text on your screen you either copy paste the text in google translate website in your browser or use a paid translator software.
Luckily I found a better and free solution to easily translate a text which is way better than copy-pasting text or translating the whole webpage using google translate.
