Whenever you are on a site that isn’t in English, Google Translate will auto-detect if the site isn’t in English and at the top of the screen, a grey bar will load asking if you want the site translated.  And if you want to change the settings for this add-on, click “Options” in the right-hand side of the grey bar.
