Improved Built-in Translator

The built-in translator in Vivaldi wasn’t highly sought-after, as it didn’t handle its tasks efficiently. In the new browser version, the developers have upgraded the built-in translator, fully revamping its server-side, boosting its speed, and enhancing its translation quality for some languages.
