How to Enable or Disable Offer to Translate Pages in Microsoft Edge Chromium

By default, Microsoft Edge offers translating web pages that are not in your default language of the browser. If you are not happy to see such prompts every time you visit a page in a foreign language, you may want to disable them. For example, you may prefer alternative translators to Bing, which is enabled by default in Edge.

Microsoft Edge is now a Chromium-based browser with a number of exclusive features like Read Aloud and services tied to Microsoft instead of Google. The browser has already received a few updates, with support for ARM64 devices in Edge Stable 80. Also, Microsoft Edge is still supporting a number of aging Windows versions, including Windows 7, which has recently reached its end of support.
