Translate single words in Safari?

I am learning Swedish and whist I can read a good portion, sometimes I will come across a word I don't know. On Chrome I had Google's own dictionary extension installed which would translate a word into English when I double tapped it. Does anyone know of a similar extension for Safari or a way to configure the dictionary app so when I three-finger tap a foreign word it could give me the translation?

Just take a look through the Translation Extensions for Safari and see if you like any. You're probably not going to be able to use the three-finger tap without using a third-party program like BetterTouchTool to reprogram that, but certainly you can get translations a bunch of ways.

Did you end up finding a decent extension?

The apple site still doesn't seem to have a decent one-word translation extension...
