Save precious moments by using keyboard shortcuts and get translations without opening the Intento Translator extension each time.
Press Ctrl+M (⌘M on Mac) to translate the whole page or selection.
If you want to switch back to the original text of the page of selection, press Alt+M (⌥M on Mac).
If you need a translation in the reverse direction (i.e. you answer a chat message or an email and want to send it in the recipient's language), select your text and press Alt+Shift+M (⌥⇧M on Mac).
You can change the predefined shortcuts to any other ones that are convenient for you. Just go to the shortcuts page chrome://extensions/shortcuts in your Chrome browser and set shortcuts that fit better to the way you type.
In most cases, you need your shortcuts to be set to In Chrome (default option). However, if you need to translate web pages when Chrome does not have focus, set the shortcuts to Global.
