Yandex published an update of the company's Yandex Browser earlier this month that integrates Image Translate functionality natively in the browser. Yandex Browser is based on Chromium, the same core that powers many other browsers including Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Brave, Edge or Vivaldi.
The update, introduced in version 21.3.1, improves the built-in translator, powered by Yandex Translate, which works similarly to Google Translate in Chrome. When Yandex users visit foreign language sites, they get the option to translate the content into another language.
With Image Translate landing in Yandex Browser stable, users of the web browser may now do the same for any image they encounter.

All it takes is a right-click on any image that is displayed in the browser and the selection of "translate image" from the context menu to get the translation on the image itself after a brief moment. Yandex notes that on some images, you may also get a small button in the upper right corner to invoke the translate functionality.
