Several days ago, google removed the original language web that had been below the translated search results. but today, where is the "Translated foreign pages" option that used to be in the results filter? I can't find it!

Hi all, thanks for bringing this up -- we're currently investigating it. I'll let you know if there are any updates.

Update: This feature is currently unavailable, but we'd like to bring the functionality back in the future. I'll give you updates as I receive them, but for now there's no time frame for when that will happen. Thanks again for your feedback!

Hi everyone, here's the latest update: The translate foreign pages feature is no longer offered. Removing features always involves tough choices, but we do think very hard about each decision and its implications for our users. You can still translate entire pages in Chrome. Streamlining enables us to focus on creating beautiful technology that will improve people’s lives.

Or make it more difficult to find foreign news. Your call.

My thoughts exactly.

Please bring it back!!!  So many people live/travel abroad and it is invaluable to us!  In addition, the web is in every country and it is essential that you can use Google Search to be on the cutting edge!

Please please bring it back!!  Rather than improving my life, it is making it a lot more difficult!  Danke, gracias and thank you!

I wasn't even aware of this feature, which is described on the old help page as follows:

Google Translated Search

  1. What is Translated Search?

    Sometimes the best results for your search query may not be in your language. Translated Search is your window into the multilingual web. This feature of Google Search allows you to type queries in your own language and view results from around the world translated back to your language, all powered by Google Translate.

  2. How do I use Translated Search?

    To search results from websites written in other languages, after you perform a search click on More search tools on the bottom-left hand side of the search results page. Then click on Translated foreign pages.

    Google will translate your search term into one or more languages, and then perform a search using the translated terms. The search results are then translated back into the language you selected in the "My language" dropdown. Click a translated result and you'll be taken to an automatically translated version of the page.

    If you'd like to search a specific language not listed, click on Add language. Or if you'd like to remove a language, just click on the X next to the language.

    Google translates your search term and performs a search using the translated terms. The search results are then translated back into the language you selected in the "My language" dropdown. Click a translated result and you'll be taken to an automatically translated version of the page.

    Edit the translated search term

    If you know the translation of your search term isn't quite right, just click Edit next to the translated query on the search results page to edit it. Then press Enter or click the search button to search using the corrected search term.

    Advanced search operators

    The site: and filetype: advanced search operators are currently supported. You can stop a search term from being translated by putting a + sign in front of it. (Be sure to include a space before the + sign.)



Is there really a substitute for this feature? Translating results is very useful, but it sounds as though translating and re-running the query needs to be done manually, unless/until someone creates an add-on to help with it.

Se la funzione "pagine straniere tradotte" è stata eliminata (grosso errore), come posso eseguire la ricerca in modo similare? La funzione era molto utile, anzi indispensabile!!!

I agree, this feature is really really important to me!

It is big fail from google remove "Translated foreign pages".  It is not important if so useful function is now used by majority of users. This function was not very advertised, I found it occasionally and from that time used it every day. Removing function that helps people around the world understand each other is against fundamentals, on which Google Inc. is based. Manual workaround of  removing this function worked for me (via manual query translate thgough google translate -> copy and paste it to search google) but is not convenient.
