Support » Fixing WordPress » div id=”gtx-trans

  • I have this annoying icon I can’t turn off showing google translate even though I have no plugins installed on the site for translations. Removing the chrome plugin removes the icon but not the space being taken by the tag & id. Removing the chrome plugin is not an option, it is a must plugin for me. The closed thread here I read only states to remove the chrome plugin like it fixes this but doesn’t. The icon goes away but the tags and id are still present in the upper left section of the page. The thread was closed so I couldn’t comment there. Sorry to create another thread. This just drove me nuts for the last 2 hours trying to figure out how to remove or disable this without using css. Any help would be appreciated.

  • Hey @natekolvek,

    Are you using Google Chrome browser? Can you check if it also happens in other browsers? Your website is not live so I wasn’t able to check it from my side.

    I ended up using sitewide CSS to fix it anyways, #gtx-trans { display: none !important;} then tested with 4 other browsers. It’s no longer there now, even in chrome with the translate extension installed again but this is still something to keep in mind as others may report a useless icon embedded in the page they didn’t put there and does nothing at all. Attached is a screenshot of the div id still present on the page in chrome without the google translate extension installed in chrome (before using css to fix it). This was the only way around totally useless icon/space being taken or even present in inspector.

    Thanks for the fairly quick response!

    P.S. I was glad I didn’t have to revert to the early 2000’s and post a notice for best page results use another browser.. Chrome is one of the most used browsers and several others are now using chrome’s engine (edge, brave chromium etc..). made me nervous the only responses from wordpress support only said use another browser and closed the thread.
