Google Translate Chrome Extension

The Google Translate Chrome extension allows for quick translations. Simply highlight the text and click on the translate icon to see the text in the language previously chosen. This is fantastic since English is not everyone's first language. Having instructions translated to a user's first language can be incredibly helpful on the TechSmart platform.
