Permission to veiw my passwords.
I took a screenshot, but cant add it... This plugin gives its self permision to veiw my accounts and passwords? WHY? I dont even, I have no idea why that would be benifical to this app? what, for translating them? I mean that makes no sense! I dont feel okay with using this app and hope I deleted it in time...
Developer Response ,
Dear user, The app is reviewed and tested by Apple, so it is not harmful at all for your browsing experience. Actually, all your Safari extensions (like Evernote, AdBlocker and so on) will have the same description there, this is the standard. You can download other extensions from the App Store and you will see that the same label will appear. Back to my app: the extension can access your webpage just to be able to make it’s job/features, but the extension is not collecting any information, is not accessing any information from your browser, it’s not monitoring anything or sending data over the Internet in any way. It's very safe. The only reason the label is there is because the extension must access your loaded webpage in order to change it. Also, it's reviewed and tested by Apple in order to enter the App Store and they do not allow apps or extensions that collect information about you. You can also review the privacy terms from here (the In a Nutshell section is enough): https://alexdenk.eu/privacy-safari-extensions.html So keep using the extension with confidence.
The app is fast-ish (not always) and reliable. BUT and it's a big but...it WILL translate the original text as well if you are trying to see what a word means. For exaple, lets say you translate a paragraph and you're reading it and want to know what the original word was so you highligh and select to see it (that is a feature of the app). It will show the current translated word and the original but ONLY translated so you will see the same word twice (for example, cocinar----cocinar). It will appear exactly like this and this haappens when the app is set to auto. There is no way to undo this.
The full page translator website google offers (but makes increasingly hard to find) sometimes doesn't load the images on a page, and it's not ideal to have to find that website every time. I'm a safari user because it's the browser with the lowest impact on my system, and this integrates well.

How to translate web pages in safari on mac.
Have you landed on a French or Spanish website? Translate it to English with the press of a button!
Often find yourself on websites with text in a foreign language? If you use Safari, there's no need to go to Google Translate. You can translate web pages between seven languages right in Safari on a Mac.
Starting with Safari 14.0, Apple included a translation feature directly in the browser. As of this writing, the feature is in beta, but fully functional. If your Mac is running the latest version of macOS Mojave, Catalina, Big Sur , or newer, you can access the translation feature.
The translation functionality works between the following languages: English, Spanish, Italian, Chinese, French, German, Russian, and Brazilian Portuguese.
By default, you can translate any of the above languages to English. You can also add more languages to the mix (we'll talk more about that below).
To get started, open a web page in one of the supported languages. Safari will automatically recognize that language, and you'll see "Translation Available" in the URL bar, along with a Translation button; click it.
If this is the first time you've used the feature, a pop-up will appear. Click "Enable Translation" to turn on the feature.
In the translation menu, select "Translate to English."
The text on the page will instantly convert to English, as shown in the image below. The Translation button will also turn blue.
To disable the Translation feature and return to the original language, click the Translation button again, and then select "View Original."
As we mentioned above, you can also translate to languages other than English. To do so, click the Translation button, and then select "Preferred Languages."
This opens the "Language & Region" menu in System Preferences. Here, click the plus sign (+) to add a new preferred language. You can add multiple languages here while continuing to use English as the default language across your Mac.
In the pop-up, select the languages you want to add, and then click "Add."
System Preferences will ask if you want to make this your default language. Choose the previous default language if you want it to remain the status quo.
Now that you've added a new preferred language, you'll see the translation button even when you visit web pages that are in English.
The translation process for a preferred language is the same: click the Translation button in the URL bar, and then select "Translate to [the language you selected]."
Again, you can view the original at any time by simply clicking "View Original" in the Translation menu.
If you're traveling to a new country, you can also use the built-in Translate app on your iPhone or iPad to quickly translate speech between multiple languages.

7 Browser Extensions to Help Translate Different Languages
Harness the full potential of your browser with add-ons that can supercharge everything from web searches to email writing . For language learners who want to grow their vocabulary and develop confidence, browser extensions are an opportunity to casually practice while online. But before you download anything, here’s how to audit a browser extension to ensure it’s safe.
Whether you're streaming Netflix series during your spare time or gobbling up the latest tech news, at least one of the following picks is likely worth incorporating into your language learning process. Test the options that spark your interest and simply uninstall anything that you don’t enjoy. Although you will not receive speaking practice, these browser extensions can help hone your reading and listening skills.
Language Reactor is for anyone who wants to practice a new language while streaming videos on their computer. After the browser extension is installed, YouTube videos are able to display two sets of captions at the same time. The list of available languages is impressive, and hovering over a captioned word displays a translation dictionary.
If you binge-watch movies and TV shows on your computer, Language Reactor’s other primary function is to provide dual captions for Netflix entertainment. Practice English with the minions from Despicable Me or brush up on your Korean during the Squid Game bloodbath.
In addition to Netflix and YouTube, Language Reactor requests access to your data from Amazon. To turn this off, click the puzzle icon located to the right of the address bar, and select Manage Extensions . Tap on Details , toggle off automatic access to listed sites, and manually pick the sites.
The basic extension is free. More features, like the ability to save vocabulary words, can be unlocked with a $5 monthly subscription. Language Reactor is available for Chrome, but its website says Firefox and Edge versions are in the works.
Reviews editor Julian Chokkattu describes a Samsung smartphone in a video with Japanese subtitles from Language Reactor.
Google’s language tools receive a fair amount of criticism from teachers and human translators. When pasting large blocks of text into Google for translation, the subtle complexities of language are smoothed over. Literal meanings are easy to convey, but intentions and contexts are difficult to parse. Keeping these limitations in mind, Google Translate, Google Dictionary, and Google Input Tools are solid browser extensions for Chrome users.
The Google Translate extension is simple to use for pop-up translations as you browse the internet. You can adjust the settings so pop-ups happen automatically when you highlight a word, or buttons can appear beneath the highlighted word for you to click on to see the translation. Tap on the speaker icon to hear a word aloud. If this extension is pinned at the top of your browser, anytime you click on the icon, a text box for translation immediately appears.
Google Dictionary does not support as many languages as Google Translate, but the extension is useful if you’re studying one of the available options. When double-clicking on a word, the definition pops up on screen. For more advanced readers, this can be crucial for learning new words without relying on direct translations. If you would like to go back and practice later, Google Dictionary lets you store a list of defined words.
Typing in German or Italian with a standard English keyboard is straightforward, but what if you're learning Hindi or Chinese? With Google Input Tools you can write in different languages. The transliteration feature allows you to type the phonetic spelling of a word and choose the corresponding script from a dropdown menu. In addition, the handwriting tool lets you draw characters from other languages by using your mouse cursor.
While reading articles online, Toucan automatically translates a small portion of the content for blended language learning. Hovering over translations by Toucan shows the original word and allows you to play an audible pronunciation. The standard extension is free to use, but a subscription plan is offered for reviewing saved words and avoiding ads. Toucan is compatible with Chrome and Firefox.
For English speakers, the browser extension offers translations in 11 languages. Spanish, German, Korean, Arabic, and Hebrew are a few of the choices. The company is working to expand its offered languages with additions such as Vietnamese, Swedish, and Farsi.
By cherry-picking words out of larger blocks of text, you may not experience complete contextual accuracy while using Toucan. When approaching a new language, employing a myriad of learning strategies is better than relying on a single source of information. Toucan has its drawbacks but may be a fantastic tool for people who read multiple articles a day and would like supplemental language practice.
Senior writer Andy Greenberg’s reporting about ice cream from McDonald’s, with Arabic inserted by Toucan.
With Mate Translate , words or phrases you read online can be translated into more than 100 languages. Double-click on a single word for a white text box to show the translation. If you tap on the speaker icon, a person will say the word aloud. Translate more than one word by highlighting the portion you would like to better understand and either clicking on the Mate Translate logo that appears below the selected words or using the keyboard shortcut, which is initially set to Shift + T .
Watching entertainment in other languages is a popular and accessible learning strategy; if you’re a Netflix subscriber, Mate Translate can be used on subtitles. The browser extension also allows you to translate entire webpages.
As a versatile option, Mate Translate is available for Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Edge, and Safari. Unlock extra features for the extension, like synonym access and a dark mode, with a subscription to Mate Pro.
The core functionality of TransOver is similar to Google Translate. Pick a language you want to practice and set the browser extension to activate either when you highlight a word or hover over a word. It’s available on Firefox , Chrome , and Opera . The extension is also on Edge but is poorly reviewed by users of that browser. TransOver is a simplistic, free option for people who want to occasionally translate words while surfing the Internet and don’t need a complicated browser extension cluttering their day-to-day user experience.

Safari makes it simple to translate almost any web page in its entirety.
Maybe it’s not an entire web page you want to translate but a certain part. It might be a sentence or a paragraph. You can do this using Live Text and then take advantage of the additional options you have.
- Select the text you want to translate by dragging your cursor through it to highlight it.
You can decide the availability of languages when you use Safari’s translation feature . Here’s how.
- At the top of the window, you’ll see Preferred Languages listing those you have available for translation.
- You’ll see a message asking if you want to change your primary language to the one you want to add. Choose the option you want, and you’ll then see the new language displayed in your Preferred Languages list.
- When you finish, close the System Settings. You should then see your updated languages available when you select the Translate icon in Safari.
If you translate a page and believe the translation may be inaccurate, you can let Apple know. This helps Apple improve translations moving forward.
- You’ll see a message pop-up letting you know that Apple will store and use the web page address contents to improve translations. Pick Report to send the information to Apple.
Don’t let language barriers stop you!
With the built-in translation feature in Safari on Mac, you don’t have to use a third-party translator or bypass a potentially great web page because it’s in a different language.

Troubleshooting, how to translate webpages in safari on iphone & ipad.
Did you know you can translate webpages in Safari on iPhone and iPad? If you’re on a foreign language website, you can easily translate it into English using a fantastic language webpage translation feature built into Safari for iOS and iPadOS. And yes, this feature also exists in Safari for Mac , in case you were wondering.
Not everything that you see on the web is written in English, and whether you’re browsing foreign news sites or just ending up with something not in English, you may find it useful to translate a webpage into something you can read. Safari now has this capability, and you can easily convert a webpage from French, Spanish, Chinese, etc, into English with just a few taps. This is similar to a Chrome language translation for webpages on iPhone and iPad , except of course it’s using Safari, the default browser in iOS and iPadOS.
Ready to use and access the built-in translator for webpages in Safari for iPhone and iPad? Let’s get to it!
How to Translate Webpages on iPhone & iPad with Safari
As long as your iPhone or iPad is running iOS 14 / iPadOS 14 or newer, the language translation feature will be available. Here’s how it works:
Now you know how to go about translating webpages in Safari natively on the iPhone and iPad. No new apps or third party downloads are required.
If you can’t find the Translate feature within Safari despite running a compatible system software version, it’s probably because Safari’s built-in translator is currently limited to users in select regions, but the feature is rolling out elsewhere too as it is refined by Apple.
If your iPhone or iPad is running an older version of iOS/iPadOS, or isn’t compatible with the iOS 14/iPadOS 14 update, you can still translate webpages in Safari using Microsoft Translator . You’ll of course need to download the Microsoft Translator app from the App Store and keep it installed to access this feature within Safari.Switching to Google Chrome is an alternate option as well, and the translation feature in Chrome works flawlessly and it can automatically translate most of the webpages to not just English, but any of your preferred languages if you’re not a native English speaker. This makes Chrome a great choice if you’re in an area that isn’t supported by Safari webpage translations yet.
What do you think of Safari’s built-in translator tool for converting foreign webpages to English? Do you use this feature? Do you have another method to convert a webpage to English from another language? Share with us your tips, thoughts, and comments below!

I am not able to see translate option in my iPad pro
I need this. I will see if it helps. Thx.
This only works for select few languages. Pales in comparison to Google Translate. Ot’s going to take Apple another 5,10 years to catch up with other languages… if at all 😢. This article is bit misleading. It does not explain how limited this feature is
I’m running high seirra 10 13 6 and when I type in a foreign website (orange fr as you suggested to test it) next to each selection is written ‘translate this page’ and there is no ‘aA’ in the selection which I guess is even better? Works perfectly and thanks for all your suggestions; I am subscribed to OSXDaily Regards, earl
This is EXACTLY why I look at osxdaily every single day.
I’ve used Macs since 1984. I like to think I know my way around the Macintosh world – which I do.

Here are the best new Safari extensions to download for iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 (Updated)
One of the flagship new features in iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 is the redesigned Safari web browser. While the highlight of the new Safari is its user interface, it also gains compatibility with more powerful, Mac-like browser extensions. Now that iOS 15 is available to download, there are plenty of extensions hitting the App Store, and we’ve put together a list of some to try out.
Users of 1Password will love the new Safari extension in the latest update. The 1Password extension gives you the ability to see any password right in Safari and fill in password fields with saved ones. The extension can automatically fill in two-factor authentication codes as well. If you’re using an iPad, you will get the entire desktop 1Password experience. The extension will appear in the toolbar for you to access at any time.
The developer behind Apollo for Reddit, Christian Selig, has created a new Safari extension called Amplosion. Amplosion redirects you to the original webpage when you open an AMP link in Safari. The app also lets you keep track of how many times you’ve visited an AMP link and how many times you’ve used Amplosion to avoid one. Amplosion is priced at just $1.99 and if you hate AMP as much as I do it’s well worth it.
Christian has also created an extension that adds an HTML web inspector to Safari. The app is priced at $0.99 and is well worth it – since Apple still hasn’t added its own inspector.
The new CardPointers Safari extension knows what deals you may be able to take advantage of on different shopping websites. CardPointers says that it’s compatible with thousands of websites. While shopping in Safari with the extension enabled, you’ll get a notice telling you which card to use for the best deal as well as any special offers.
Cheep is an app that helps you find deals on Flights. With its latest update, it adds a Safari extension for use with Google Flights. The extension helps determine the cost per mile, distance in miles, and recommends whether or not you should book the flight. Cheep is free.
Am excited for Cheep launch for iOS 15 today! https://t.co/IgcZ7i1upe – safari extension for google tells you the miles, cost per mile, and rating – personalize airline alliances for mileage run deals – minimum fare rating you want to see – integration with TikTok and Instagram pic.twitter.com/RpJ84MYmys — Jonathan Chum (@jchum) September 20, 2021
HyperWeb is a new extension that adds the ability to customize just about anything you want to in Safari while browsing the web. The app lets you create blockers, personalize search, and customize the design of webpages. The app can also recommend enhancements to enable to make the extension more powerful.
Language Translator by Mate
Safari already has some translation features built-in but a new app from Gikken called Language Translator can help you take things to the next level. The app’s new Safari extension can automatically translate sites in 40 languages without any work required by the user. You can also select text and get a pop-up window if you want to translate it to another language. The app is pricey though at $29.99 but if you frequently need to translate different sites in a multitude of languages it might be worth the buy.
Vidimote is a new Safari extension that allows you to control video playback from the toolbar. The extension lets you change the speed of videos, jump ahead, switch between PiP and fullscreen, and more. Vidimote is $4.99 and available now.
StopTheMadness is a Safari extension that helps you take control of websites you frequently visit. The extensions lets you enable native iOS features like contextual menus, text editing, drag and drop, and autofill. The extension also improves privacy on the web by stopping clickjacking for different services among other things. StopTheMadness is priced at $7.99 on the App Store.

9 Best Safari Extensions of 2024
Add more functionality to Safari
- Swansea University, Staffordshire University
Like Chrome , Safari isn't just a stagnant web browser, it also has additional functionality via its Safari Extension plugins which take seconds to install . A form of add-on, Safari extensions now come bundled with relevant Mac apps, as well as via the App Store.
Whether you're looking for productivity hacks, easy ways of saving money on your shopping, or ways to make your browsing experience more pleasant, there's a Safari extension for you.
Looking for great Chrome extensions? There are plenty out there.
Grammar Checker: Grammarly
Simple and clear writing suggestions.
You need a subscription to get the most from it.
Grammarly is there for those times when you're not quite sure if your spelling or grammar is up to scratch. It highlights issues via a red line underneath a word and allows you to easily correct them, whether you happen to be typing a Facebook status or a blog post. It's a useful service that's like a little nudge in the right direction when trying to improve your writing ability.
Cinema Style Lighting Effect: Turn Off the Lights
Neat atmospheric lighting effect.
Need to load the separate app to change settings.
One of the most effective things at the cinema is how the lights go down and you can focus solely on the cinema screen. Turn Off the Lights offers that same kind of effect on your laptop or desktop.
When on YouTube or another video based site, click the lightbulb icon on Safari, and the lights around the video playing are immediately dimmed. You can focus on the screen itself rather than everything going on around it. To get the full effect, you need to tweak some settings, but it's a neat way of adding some atmosphere when watching a video.
Price Comparer: PriceBlink
Easy to compare prices.
Only works in the U.S. and U.K.
PriceBlink keeps an eye on prices so you don't have to. Go to somewhere like Amazon or eBay, and the moment you load an item, PriceBlink pops up with its price elsewhere. You can instantly see if Amazon really is offering the best price or if there's somewhere cheaper you could switch to. If a better alternative is listed, click the site, and PriceBlink loads the alternate option in a separate tab. This simple extension could save you a lot of money over time.
Password Management: LastPass
Extra layer of protection for passwords.
Little convoluted to setup.
Safari has built-in password management, but LastPass is much better at the job. It works across multiple devices and also gives you somewhere to store files and notes securely.
A lot of the time, you'll need to delve into the separate app to use it fully, but the Safari extension gives you the ability to generate secure passwords, quickly fill in forms, or add notes, all directly from your browser. It's a real game changer for security and privacy concerns.
Easy Coupon Codes: Honey
Easy to browse.
Most coupons are for the U.S. only.
Online, you can find thousands of coupon codes and offers, but it's likely that you forget to look them up until you've already ordered something. At the touch of a button, you can open Honey to the side of Safari, and check out the coupons available to you.
The extension offers up plenty of popular retailers such as Macy's, Bloomingdale's, eBay, and Sears. Just tap on the name of the retailer, and you can look up coupons, as well as details on how long ago they worked correctly. Honey also has a reward scheme for extra bonuses.
Link Saving: Pocket
Great for storing links for later reference.
You need to sign up first.
How often do you find yourself looking at a great long-form article and realizing you don't have the time to read it right now? With Pocket, you just need to click the "Save to Pocket" button, and the link saves to your account so you can easily consult it later on. It works across multiple devices and you can tag and label articles so that everything is neatly organized.
Ad blocker: Adblock Plus
Easy to set up.
Settings can be a little tricky.
No one likes obtrusive ads when trying to read an interesting article online. Adblock Plus makes it simple to block ads and tracking ads that bug you, while "safelisting" websites that you want to see all the ads for. Adblock Plus takes a responsible approach to ads with an option allowing for "acceptable ads," appreciating that website owners still need to generate revenue, while saving you the hassle of the worst kind of adverts.
Picture in Picture: PiPer
Supports many different video sites.
Liable to dent your productivity.
Being able to multitask is always a valuable skill. While you can switch between windows and tabs, it hasn't been possible to have YouTube or Netflix running alongside what you're working on in Safari.
PiPer changes all that. Via its extension, you can easily place a video in the corner of your screen, allowing you to continue working while the video plays to the side. It's a great tool for juggling multiple things together.
Translates from dozens of languages.
You need to poke around in settings to gain full benefits.
One of the best things about Chrome is its ability to translate websites for you. Translate brings that functionality to Safari. Simply go to a website, tap the translate button, and Translate converts everything to English via Google Translate or Bing Translate. It takes a moment or two but you can see it being converted before your eyes which is neat. Translations are reasonably accurate too.

Best Browser Add-Ons to Translate Web Pages on the Go
Online content consists of multiple languages, so you may not always find the content you need in your preferred language. Even if English (whigh powers most of the web content) is your main language, you may still land on a web page or content that you may not be able to understand.
If this happens to you often, then you might want to try a browser add-on to translate web page content on the go. Below we have handpicked the best translation extensions for Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Opera.
1. Google Translate (Chrome)
Google Translate is the most widely-used translation service that will let you translate over nI ery different languages. This is the official Google Translate extension for Chrome that is also powered by the same amazing translation service. The extension really makes translation a breeze. If it finds a web page that is not in your main language, it will automatically prompt you to translate it to your preferred language.
You can also highlight text on any web page and translate it to your preferred language without leaving the window. It will let you translate phrases as you type them in the text fields. If you are a Chrome user, then this is the best translation extension for you.

2. Google Translate For Firefox (Firefox)
A Google Translate-powered extension for Firefox to easily translate web content, this extension lets you translate content using three different methods. It will add a button in the address bar, one in the context menu and you can also specify a hotkey to translate content with just the push of a key. All these methods apply to full web page translations and also for translating specific content on a web page.
As Google Translate For Firefox is powered by Google Translate, it supports all the languages supported by Google Translate and the algorithm is also the same. Furthermore, you can also specify a main language to easily translate content without needing to specify it every time.
3. S3.Google Translator (Firefox)
Another good add-on for Firefox that is powered by Google Translate, this can do just about anything Google Translate For Firefox can do, and it comes with some advanced features that some people may like. Apart from translating web pages with the click of a button, it can also automatically translate subtitles on Youtube to your preferred language.
Additionally, S3.Google Translator also comes with a language learning mode that will automatically replace specific words online in a defined language to easily learn their use. Things get even easier with the built-in Text-To-Speech support that will let you listen to any phrase highlighted in the browser.
4. TranslateMe (Safari)
It is a simple translation extension for Safari that will let you quickly translate any content on the web. You can translate sentences or whole web pages using the TranslateMe toolbar button or the “T” hotkey.
It also uses Google Translate for translating and supports all its features. You can use its Text-To-Speech feature to listen to the source text for better learning.
5. ImTranslator (Opera)
A Multi-browser translation extension that has a robust list of features and also supports Opera, ImTranslator uses multiple translation services, including Google Translate, Bing Translate and Babylon Translate. This technique leads to a more accurate translation as compared to using a single service. It uses multiple methods to display the translation including pop-up, in-line translation, replacing original text (keeping formatting) and separate window translation.
You can also use multiple methods to trigger translation, including hotkey. To top that, it gives a full customization option to control the behavior of the extension. Customization includes content control, customized shortcuts, text color, bubble behavior, translation service use, individual language settings, translation history and much more.
You can use any one of the tools above and should be able to translate any web page on the go. While most services use Google Translate, you can also use the all-in-one ImTranslate that supports multiple browsers and offers translation from a service of your choosing. Do comment below and let us know how you translate web pages and why.

Best Safari Extensions in 2024
If you're using a Mac, chances are high that your browser of choice is Safari. Personally, I use it all the time unless something specifically doesn't work with Safari, and I need Chrome or some other browser. But by default, I just stick with Safari. While Safari looks barebones compared to other browsers, you can actually customize it and get some useful functionality through the use of Safari Extensions. Here are some of our favorites.

In a world where you need a password for pretty much everything, and the best security is always a randomly-generated strong and secure password, we always turn to 1Password to get the job done.
The 1Password Safari Extension is a mini version of the full-fledged 1Password app. You can quickly access all of your vaults and logins, even searching for what you need. The extension also recognizes the website that you're on, so it quickly pulls up the login info that you need. If there's nothing, you can also add a new login or item, and it helps you generate strong, secure passwords on-the-fly.
1Password includes a 30-day trial for free when you download it. Afterward, you can subscribe with individual membership at $4 a month or family membership (up to five members) for $7 a month.

Ghostery Lite is a simple and fast ad and tracker blocker.
With Ghostery Lite, you can choose between the Default Protection or Custom Protection. Default will protect you from all annoying ads and trackers that you'll encounter online. If you opt for Custom, you can pick and choose what tracker categories to block or unblock. There is also the ability to whitelist specific websites that you trust and support so that they can still earn their ad revenue from your visit.
Ever encounter a website that seems to disable certain user interface features that are supposed to be on by default in Safari? StopTheMadness helps you make sure that those features still work, even if a website seems to want them disabled.
With StopTheMadness, you'll be able to command-click and middle-click to open a link in a new tab, or use your command-key keyboard shortcuts. You'll still be able to open contextual menus, select/copy/paste text, drag-and-drop, AutoFill or auto-complete passwords, emails, and more. Oh, and smooth scrolling like butter. All of this will continue to work as normal even on sites that try to disable it, all thanks to StopTheMadness.
It also helps protect your privacy on the web, and gets rid of those annoying "Are you sure you want to leave this page?" prompts.

Ever come across a website in a language that you can't understand? While you could just open up another tab and copy-and-paste words into something like Google Translate, why not save yourself the time and effort with Mate: Universal Tab Translator?
With Mate, you can double-click or right-click on any text in almost any app (not just Safari) to translate it. You can even translate your entire clipboard with the Alt+Shift+T keyboard shortcut, which also opens up Mate above all of your other apps. Mate understands 103 languages, gives you the phonetic transcriptions, and can speak out words and texts with the correct accents to help you learn. There is also the ability to make a custom phrasebook for each language, and all translations are kept in sync across all devices.
I often come across a few links that take me to webpages in another language, so this extension is incredibly useful for helping me understand what it is I'm looking at. The price tag is a bit hefty, but it's well worth the cost if you want a fast and streamlined way of translating in Safari and other apps.

Love to get rewarded for shopping online? Then Ebates is something you should be using, and it has a convenient Safari Extension!
With the Ebates Rakuten Safari Extension, you can log in to your account ( sign up for free to check out your total and pending cash back, one-click access to your favorite site that will give you cash back, and even get you coupons if it finds any. And if there is no cash back on your favorite stores, the extension will tell you other sites that do that also have the product you want. And you can compare cash back offers as you search.
On the topic of saving money, Honey is a must for anyone who wants even more bargains, and it pairs nicely with Ebates Rakuten.

When you're watching videos online, sometimes you just want to dim out everything besides the video itself. That's where Turn Off the Lights comes in.
With this Safari Extension, the entire page will fade to dark, putting all of the focus on the video that you're watching. Just click on the lightbulb icon in Safari, and everything besides the video will dim out. Just click it again to turn it back to normal. This extension works with multiple video sites, and you can customize it with various settings to suit your needs as well. It's a great addition if you tend to watch a lot of videos online.
If you watch videos online, such as from YouTube or Netflix, but wish you could see the video while multitasking without interference, then you need PiPifier.
With PiPifier, every HTML5 video you watch and interact with can be viewed in Picture in Picture mode. Just find a video, interact with it once (such as clicking Pause/Play), and then click on the PiPifier icon in Safari. Your video will then go into Picture in Picture mode, so you're able to use other apps and still have the video playing without any interference.
When you're online, you're bound to share plenty of links with friends, family, and your social media buddies. But long links not only look ugly, they take up valuable space. That's when Short Menu comes in handy.
Short Menu lives in your Safari Extensions, and is waiting for you to insert a long link in to shorten it into something that's more manageable. You can connect to 17 different services for URL shortening, including bit.ly, Rebrandly, Google, Hive, tiny.cc, Droplr, and CloudApp. If you have a custom shortener, you can use it in the extension too!
Short Menu automatically takes whatever link is in your clipboard and puts it into the shortener of your choice, and automatically copies the shortened link into your clipboard. Easy peasy!
