The Bergamot Project funded by the «European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme» released a #Firefox addo-on useful to do offline translations in order to preserve your #privacy (when you use #Google Translate you submit your data to Google's AI).

Please avoid those kind of systems: a #databreach is always possible and you will loose something you can't change.
