Hey Gabriele,

Good to have you on board :)

Here is a quick run through on how to translate using the extension:

This will take you to the source text which in this case is english.

2) You'll see "Translate this page" near the top, click that.

3) Select your language from the drop down menu and then click "fetch" on
the right hand side.

4) Double click on a text that is highlighted in green

5) Translate! :D

There are other ways of getting to this screen via a notification, or via
your languages semi-translated page but they will all take you to this

Hope that helps :)
