Translate text in Microsoft Word 2007

with one comment


The How-To Geek weblog highlights a translation feature new to Microsoft Word 2007 that—obviously enough—translates highlighted text directly in Word. To use it, highlight your to-be-translated text, head your the Review ribbon, and click the Translate button. Word can translate either the entire document or just your selection, and it does it through an online translation service. The number of available languages is impressive, so you should be able to translate virtually anything you need. If browser-based translation is more your speed, check out the best translation services on the net.

The list of languages is fairly good. Does not include Esperanto, though.

  1. for a quick overview and a general idea of course you can use online translators or Word but if you want to have a quality translation that maybe others will also see (presentation, website, document to foreign partners) you would need a human to do it, computers cannot yet do that.
