I prefer the Franker (https://code.google.com/p/franker/) Safari extension. It's unobtrusive, I have it set up so it appears only in the contextual menu, no toolbar icons. You can choose to translate entire pages or just selected text (for when you need just a little help with a language you're learning). It can be configured to use either Google Translate or Microsoft Translator, and it's free.

Thanks for the tip, I'm trying Franker right now and it's really cool! ;-)

So you're plugging this other extension that does exactly the same thing as Translate. Brilliant.

Hi James!
I'm a great supporter of Side Tree (especially for another of their great products: Hoverzoom), but here, there is a noteworthy difference in favour of Franker, i.e. Franker allows to translate only a word or a sentence, leaving the rest of the page untouched!
It doesn't mean this extension is not good, it just doesn't do the same thing. ;-)

... BUT it needs to be said that Franker has not been updated since 2011... :-/

Does a great job with great options but has one glaring flaw. I want the option to remove the Toolbar Icon entirely and just use the Contextual Menu instead. I have too make icons up there already I don't want. Otherwise, great Safari Extension!

Just an update:

I was able to remove the Toolbar Icon with Safari's "Customize Toolbar" in the View Menu. I then dragged the icon out of the toolbar and it's gone now. :)

I add that Dorkypants'post is very welcome as Franker is not (yet?) on MU and I wouldn't have heard about it without his post. :-)
