Google has brought its translation service for Web sites to Chrome for iOS.

After a recent update, you may be surprised to find Google Chrome asking to translate Web pages for you. The feature was added in an update that also brought the ability to reduce your data usage when browsing the Web.

The translate feature was long overdue and a welcome addition to Google's mobile browser on iOS devices. The first time you wind up on a a Web page that's in a foreign language, Chrome will ask you if you'd like it to translate the page for you. If you approve the request, you'll then be asked if you'd like Google to automatically translate Web pages of the same language going forward.

Of course should you not find it all that useful, you can always disable the translate feature by going into Settings > Content Settings > Google Translate. In this section of the settings for Chrome you'll find the ability to reset your translation preferences (i.e. setting certain languages to automatically translate).
