Do you think we could translate everything?

It would be interesting to use the "hint" programming used on this website to be used as a program on an entire browser, or even the entire computer. It would allow users to hover over any word and see it translated into available languages. Or maybe this program already exists?

For browsers there are such extensions. Search for tooltip dictionary or popup dictionary for your browser.


There are many ways to translate languages. Personally I prefer to get skills so that I can speak with my German speaking friends, i.e., conversational skills on many topics including politics. Even if you can translate, unless you can talk to the speaker in colorful manners, your skills could be meaningless. That is my belief - and I learned this from many language learners.
