Ask Chrome to not translate Common Voice site automagically

See original GitHub issue

Issue Description

Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe. If user use Chrome like browser with a language set different to site language, then Chrome can translate site. And user doesn’t get content on original language.

For instance, if a Catalan speaking user has Chrome set with Spanish language (it’s very usual), and he/she visits Catalan Common Voice with web translation enabled, then all content site and phrases are in Spanish language.

Describe the solution you’d like Ask Chrome to not translate Common Voice site at all. It’s not W3C standard, but it seems <meta name="google" content="notranslate" /> on <head> section does the trick.
