The Vivaldi browser gets a translator. Translate was developed in collaboration with Lingvanex. This allows websites to be translated directly. The text is sent via Vivaldi’s servers and processed there. No third party providers have access to the text passages to be translated.
Vivaldi Translate is initially available on the desktop for Windows, Mac and Linux as well as for Android devices from version 5 and the latest Chromebooks. The button for the translator appears with the update at the top right of the browser next to the address line. You can also choose whether pages should always be translated, never or certain pages should be displayed in a different language. The mobile translator can be found in the settings.
Beta for Mail, Calendar and Reader
Vivaldi can also combine multiple accounts in its own client with version 4.0 e-mails, and it gets a feed reader and calendar. The browser provider had already presented the services in a technical preview last year, and they are now available as a beta. Vivaldis Mailer supports IMAP and POP3 servers. E-mails and contacts can also be transferred from Operas M2.
The aim is of course to create more privacy and a “better organized you”, it says in the blog post. All emails end up in a common inbox; Vivaldi can sort them according to mailing lists and threads. There is also a search function. The browser settings also offer further customization options – such as the view and filters.
According to Vivaldi’s blog post, it is much more practical to have a mail client in the browser that opens new tabs for new mails.
The feed reader also has an icon in the address line that can be used to subscribe to pages. It works in a similar way to the mails and is integrated into them. So does the calendar. This can also be managed online instead of just locally on a device. Vivaldi Calendar should contain all the usual functions. A detailed description is also available here in Vivaldi’s blog post.
