Translating Text to Another Language
If you plan to work in a language that doesn’t appear in the Editing Language list, select it
from the drop-down list immediately below, and then click Add. If the keyboard layout and
proofing dictionaries for the new language are not yet configured, links in those columns
lead to more information.
Note that you can also specify the language for the user interface in Office, for Help text,
and for ScreenTips. Not all languages are included in each Office edition, however.
To set the proofing language for selected text within a document, in the Language group
on the Review tab, click Language, Set Proofing Language. In the dialog box that appears,
select the language.
Translating Text to Another Language
Office includes several tools for language translation. Bear in mind that this is strictly
computer translation, and the results are unlikely to be as good as that done by a
nativespeaking human translator. However, it can be useful for rough translation. Office programs
offer two translation tools: one that works in the Research task pane and a Mini Translator
that pops up in a document window.
To use the first method on selected text, in the Language group on the Review tab, click
Translate, Translate Selected Text. The Research task pane opens, where you can select a
target language, as shown next. Click Insert to replace the selection, or scroll down for
additional options.
