T he content you create in Word 2010 is probably not for your eyes alone. Chances are,
the files you create will be shared with many colleagues—perhaps both in your
country and around the world. Today our growing global marketplace offers us
opportunities to work with teams, vendors, and clients almost any place in the world. Past limitations
like geography, time, and access don’t hold us back anymore—now we can send files by
e-mail or over the Web and translate our text into almost any language imaginable.
Part of the design strategy of Word 2010 is to make it easier for users like you to share your
files and collaborate with colleagues no matter where in the world they are located. The
translation tools in Word 2010 build on this sharing strategy by offering you a variety of
ways with which you can translate words, phrases, or even entire documents. What’s more,
you can customize the help information and ScreenTips in Word so that users accustomed
to other languages can find their way around in the documents you create and share.
In this chapter, you learn how to use Word 2010 to communicate with others who might be
using other languages. You also find out how to use the Mini Translator and other
translation tools to convert content on the fly. Finally, you discover how to choose the translation
services you use and find out about other translation tools available to help you and the
colleagues you share documents with around the world.
