Solved: Google translate bar disappear in Chrome after accidentally clicked the “Show Original” button

Posted by: mynag In: Internet|Solutions & Tips


Google Chrome uses Google translate to automatically prompt you if you wanted translation when you visited a non-English page. However if you have closed the translation toolbar at the top of the page by clicking the [Show Original] button whether by accident or on purpose, the translate toolbar will disappear at the top and you may have problem getting it back if you did not select the option to “Always translate… English” when you revisited the page again.


To do the translation of the page and for the translation tool bar to reappear, just right mouse click anywhere on the page (except on Flash video). A pop up menu will appear as shown below. You should now see an option called “Translate to English”. Select that option to enable translation on that page and the Google translate tool bar should re-appear on top of the page again.
