TranslationBuddy is a browser extension, or toolbar, for those computer users who want to read foreign websites or learn new languages. The TranslationBuddy Toolbar enables the user to translate any website into a different language, identify a language, learn new words, use a virtual keywords, etc. The TranslationBuddy Toolbar is a product of Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc, which is well-known to online security experts. The official website translationbuddy.com suggests that the program is compatible with Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox; however, the program works on Google Chrome, too.

If you have the TranslationBuddy Toolbar on your browser, you have probably noticed that the toolbar promotes ask.com. This search engine can be set as the default search provider and home page of the browsers if no attention is paid to the installation wizard during the installation process. It is crucial to review the privacy statement or license agreement; otherwise, important information related to the changes within the system could be omitted. If you have no intention of using the TranslationBuddy Toolbar because you have installed it by accident, you should remove it from the computer. Moreover, the prior settings of the browsers should be restored.

The reason why we recommend that you remove ask.com from the browsers is the fact that the search engine displays some sponsored links, or advertisements, in order to optimize your searches. Ask.com does not endorse those advertisements, and you should bear in mind that not all sponsored links are reliable. Some of them may be aimed at deceiving you, which is why you should be very careful when using the search engine provided by the TranslationBuddy Toolbar.

The TranslationBuddy Toolbar, as well as the search engine, may be monitoring your online behavior so that the developers of the program can understand your preferences and enhance the quality of the program. Moreover, MindSpark Interactive products may collect personal information, such as your name, email address, and telephone number. If you do not want to expose your personal information to Minspark, you should remove TranslationBuddy Toolbar from the browsers.

The TranslationBuddy Toolbar arrives at the computer with its uninstaller, and, if you want to try removing the program manually, you can do so using the following instructions. However, after uninstalling the toolbar, your operating system may get afflicted by more serious threats; hence, we recommend that you implement an anti-malware program so that you can have the TranslationBuddy Toolbar removed and the system protected.
