Translating Selected Text
Options dialog box, click the Translate To arrow and scroll all the way down to the
bottom of the list. Click Encarta Dictionary then click OK. Now the Mini Translator displays
information about the word at the cursor position, as shown in the following:
Tip
If you use the Mini Translator often, consider adding it to the Quick Access Toolbar so
that you can turn it on and off easily. On the Review tab, click Translate in the Language
group, and then right-click Mini Translator. Choose Add To Quick Access Toolbar, and
the tool appears at the right end of the toolbar in the top-left corner of the screen.
Translating Selected Text
Depending on the nature of your document, you might want to change only a selected
section or two. Perhaps you’re creating a product catalog for prospective clients in another
culture. You might want to include a paragraph that tells a little bit about your company
in the clients’ native language. You can translate those opening paragraphs by using the
Mini Translator tool (which is fine for small amounts of text), or you can use the Translate
Selected Text tool in the Translate list to make the translation for you and display additional
resources about the translated content.
The great thing about using Translate Selected Text is that it gives you additional options
that might weigh into the final translation you ultimately use in your document. When you
select the text you want to translate, choose Translate Selected Text on the Review tab; the
Research task pane appears, in which you can click Insert to add the translation directly to
your document. The Research task pane also contains links to additional resources you can
use to research further (see Figure 9-9).
