If you're like me you believe your top of screen real estate to be very important..  and adding google translate can occupy a little too much, especially for mobile users.   This is why the default google translate element is too long.  Here is how we hack the size and the words.  To be clear this is what we are changing:

In order to shorten this to something less long insert the following code into your custom code bottom of page section at the end.

<script>
x$(document).ready(function(){
x$('#google_translate_element').bind('DOMNodeInserted', function(event) {
$('.goog-te-menu-value span:first').html('Translate');
});
})
</script>

and you'll get this: 

 

I even figured out that you can use an emoji in place of translate like so: 

 

 

Placement of Translate element is also very important and after many trials this is where I have decided it is best placed for both desktop and mobile and this is the CSS I used.  Place this inside the Design Studio advanced CSS  (dark theme for translate element optional, obviously):

#google_translate_element {
position: absolute;
top: 5px;
z-index: 99999;
left: 10px;
}

@media (max-width: 667px) {
#google_translate_element {
top: 55px;
right: 160px;
}
}


/* start dark google translate theme */
div#google_translate_element div.goog-te-gadget-simple {
background-color: #333;
border-color: #222;
}

div#google_translate_element div.goog-te-gadget-simple a.goog-te-menu-value span {
color: #ccc;
}

div#google_translate_element div.goog-te-gadget-simple a.goog-te-menu-value span:hover {
color: #eee;
}
/* end dark google translate theme */
