That works for a lot of pages, although I can't guarantee it will work for everything. I have noticed that some Greek web pages that are obviously in Greek don't get recognised as Greek and so don't get translated. For example e-shop translates but Kafkas doesn't.
I have just learnt a new trick with the Chrome Browser that I wasn't aware of when I made that post. I thought I would put it in a new post in this section of the forum as it is more relevant here and it might be useful to people who struggle with Greek as much as I do.
If you open the above link to Kafkas in Chrome, as reported it does not automatically translate to English. If you find somewhere on the page that is simply Greek text, i.e. not a link, and right click on it you get a drop down menu. One of the options is "Translate into English". If you left click on that it will translate virtually the whole page into English. Some things that appear to be text are really images so it won't translate them but you should get most things. Sometimes when you click on a link to go to a new page on the same web site the new page will also open in English but sometimes it stays in Greek. If it does stay in Greek simply repeat the process of right clicking on some Greek text on the new page. Sometimes when you right click on something the "Translate into English" option does no appear. If that happens try right clicking on a different piece of text.
Apologies to regular users of Chrome who probably knew all this already. I'm not trying to teach my grandmother to suck eggs. I prefer FIrefox and only use Chrome if I need the translation option so I wasn't aware of this trick. I've just used it to navigate around the TaxisNET site, find my ENFIA statement and download it so it is quite useful.
