Translate web pages on your phone

With Vivaldi Translate, you can translate full web pages with just a click of a button. No Extensions needed.

Translate a web page

When a website you’re viewing is in a language different from your browser’s user interface language, Vivaldi offers to translate it for you. A banner will be shown just above the bottom toolbar for every language you haven’t made a decision about. The original language of the page is on the left and the translation language on the right. To translate the page to your default language, simply tap on the language on the banner.

To show the page in its original language again, tap on the original language on the banner.

In case, you closed the banner or it didn’t open after the page finished loading, open it from Vivaldi menu > Translate.


Translation options

In addition to translating the page to your browser’s default language, you can choose to translate into any of the supported languages. To change the translation language:

Option 1

  1. Click on the .menu button on the Translation Banner.
  2. Click on More languages.
  3. Select a different language from the menu.

Option 2

  1. Go to Vivaldi menu > Settings > General > Language settings > Translation Settings > Advanced.
  2. Tap on Translate into this language.
  3. Select your preferred language.

To eliminate extra steps for future translations, you can enable or disable translation of certain languages and sites.

To change your preferences:

  1. Click on the .menu button on the Translation Banner.
  2. Change your preferences.

Available options:

  • Always translate – always translate the current language.
