In Depth Information
You can translate a word from one language to another using language dictionaries installed
on your computer. If you are connected to the Internet, the Translation feature searches the
dictionaries on your computer as well as online dictionaries.
While the feature is capable of fairly complex translations, it may not grasp the tone or meaning of your
text. You can choose Translate Document from the Translate drop-down menu to send the document
over the Internet for translation, but be aware that Word sends documents as unencrypted HTML files. If
security is an issue, do not choose this route; instead, consider hiring a professional translator.
