How do I completely turn off translation?

I cannot find an option in the settings to completely turn off translations. I vastly prefer English, Dutch, German, French, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese websites in their original language simply because I can read them and translated versions always have issues. But now firefox (I am on version 119, windows) continues checking (and asking for each language) wether I want something translated. How can I turn translations off completely?

You need to use about:config. Enter about:config in the address bar, accept the risk as asked and search for translat. Toggle the following preference to false. browser.translations.enable
