How to Remove Google Translator

By Chris Hoffman

Google's Google Translate Web service translates Web pages and text between different languages. Both the Google Toolbar for Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox and the Google Chrome Web browser include an integrated Google Translator feature. A Google Translator toolbar appears at the top of your Web browser window when you view a Web page in a non-English language, offering to translate the Web page to English for you. You can disable this feature if you don't want to use Google Translate, removing the Google Translator toolbar from your Web browser.
