Welcome to TNW Essentials, a collection of pointers, guides, and guidance on how to quickly get the most out of your devices, apps, and other things.

I’m generally a Mac user, however because I’m presently evaluating the Razer Blade laptop computer, I have actually been required to momentarily change to Windows. In some way, Chrome for Windows found out my native tongue is Bulgarian, and immediately set the web browser’s default translation language to Bulgarian– despite the fact that I choose to equate pages to English.

Thankfully, altering the default translation language is quite easy. Here’s how to do it:

  • When you open any page in a foreign language, you will see the Translate icon at the ideal side of the URL bar. Click it.

  • This will open the Translate settings.
  • Open the ‘Options’ drop-down menu (choices will sit left of ‘Equate’ on MacOS), and head to ‘Modification languages.’

  • Select your favored translation language (in my case, English).

Whenever you go to a foreign language page now, you can right-click (or utilize the Translate icon in the URL bar) to equate it to your default language– with no requirement to choose the favored language by hand.

Oh, by the method, this works the exact same method on both MacOS and Windows.

Believe Me, it’ll conserve you some unneeded problem.
