How to switch off Google website translator when browsing?

I'm using Firefox 40.0, and on some websites (for instance http://nameexoworlds.iau.org/exoworldsvote) a Google website translator bar shows up on the top of the website. It's asking if the language in the website (English) should be translated into Dutch. However, as I'm perfectly able to read English, I want it to stop asking me for translating from English. There is a button for that on the bar, however it does not appear to work, because when I press it the bar disappears, but when I refresh the website the bar is back. How do I keep the bar from showing up or just stop it from trying to translate English?

Click "Options" button, is to right bar and select "Disable translator for this site" (Option 1).

That does help for the one site, but it still show up on other sites. Is there no way to just fully disable this thing?
