Improved performance of Vivaldi Translate

Vivaldi Translate, the translation tool for your Android devices

Today’s update knocks down language barriers and helps you communicate faster with an improved Vivaldi Translate, supporting 108 languages. 

Together with our translation service partner, Lingvanex, we have greatly improved the performance of Vivaldi Translate. We have also significantly improved the translation quality for multiple languages.

Vivaldi Translate does not harvest any information about you or the pages you translate on your desktop and Android devices. Vivaldi operates the service from our Icelandic data center with your privacy as the top priority.

Enjoy Vivaldi 6.6 on your phone, tablet, and Chromebooks 

In a sea of browsers that look and function the same, isn’t it great that you can get something more personal and different? 

To all our European friends, look for Vivaldi when you are met with the Browser Choice Screen if you get a new device.

Enjoy the new Vivaldi and keep sharing your feedback with us. Get it from the Google Play Store, and rate us with 5 stars.
