I have <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge,chrome=1"> and <meta name="google" value="notranslate"> but tries to translate the page.


I'm afraid you have misunderstood the function of the tag.

<meta name="google" value="notranslate">

only prevents google from showing the 'translate this page option' in their search results, it has no effect on Chrome's translation functionality.

If you specify the page language correctly, Chrome won't offer to translate the page for users with the same browser language setting.

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge,chrome=1">

Forces the use of the latest IE rendering engine and Chrome Frame (even in an intranet) and has no effect on translation.

  • Yes, I want it to prevent Google frame from showing the "translate this page". The language is specified correctly both by header and meta. Yes, I want it to use Google Frame because Trident is crap. – ilhan Mar 21 '12 at 16:02

    @george It's the browser, there doesn't appear to be anything you can do to stop it. – MJWadmin Mar 21 '12 at 21:16
