Using the Mini Translator
Tip
If you want to take a look at the keyboard you’re currently using, click the Start button,
point to All Programs, choose Accessories, click Ease Of Access, and then On-Screen
Keyboard. Your current keyboard is displayed on the screen so that you can see the key
configuration. You can also type characters by clicking the keys on the on-screen
keyboard if you choose.
Changing the Language Bar
W hen you add new languages and keyboard configurations to Word 2010, the
Language Bar includes those options so that you can switch among your choices
easily. The Language Bar is actually part of your Windows operating system, so the
changes you make will be reflected in all the Office 2010 programs you use.
You can change the Language Bar settings by right-clicking the bar and choosing
Settings from the displayed list (as shown in the following illustration). There, you can
change the way items are displayed, alter the configuration of the Language Bar, or
close the bar if you no longer need it.
Using the Mini Translator
The Mini Translator is a new feature in Word 2010 that makes it easy for you to translate
words and phrases as you work in your documents. The Mini Translator comes in handy,
for example, when you want to include select phrases in a second language or you want to
include a note to a client or colleague in his or her native language. You can easily translate
text in your document, copy and paste the selected text, or even have the text read aloud
for you so that you know how to pronounce it.
Your first step involves choosing the language you want to use with the Mini Translator. On
the Review tab, click Translate in the Language group. Click Choose Translation Language.
The Choose Translation Language dialog box appears (see Figure 9-6); click the Translate To
arrow, choose the language you want to use from the list that appears, and then click OK.
