Stage 1: Definition
1. Feature overview
This feature will enable in-browser translation of content for users who come across web sites that are not in their native language/locale.
On Firefox desktop application, we aim to support 3 main features including: whole page translation, selected content translation, and in-context translation.
The feature of whole page translation is planned to be supported on Firefox mobile devices too.
2. Users & use cases
Target users: people who need to browse webpages in their non-native languages.
User Research Process: - Interview 6 non-native English speakers in SF to understand their online browsing behaviors, potential needs for translation help.
User Research Findings: - People who don't speak English neither visit any English websites, nor try to read anything in English. - Language block access. They still care about things happening in the rest of the world, such as news, travel, also shopping, education. However, searching these content in native language does not help find reliable/official information. - Non-native speakers still need extra help, online dict, translation add-on, etc.
-I use many social networking websites like Google plus and Twitter. I do follow peoples who are not use English as their main language. When I get their updates my news feed, I need to translate it. The 'Selected Content Translation' feature will come to use here.
A real-world user scenario: Parents are browsing the web, looking for information about traveling to Japan, such as local weather. Their goals are to get most genuine and reliable information from Japanese local content providers before going on a trip.
