How to Translate Text to Other Languages in Microsoft Word 2007

Thanks to the internet, the other side of the world is just milliseconds away. Many jobs deal with very diverse cultures every day. Since the world is truly a global economy your next big customer might be a continent away. There may be times when you need to translate an entire document into another language, and if you have Microsoft Word then translating will not require a professional translator.

Just follow these simple steps:


  1. After writing or opening the document select the text that you would like translated.

  2. On the Menu bar click Review

  3. Click on Translate in the Review tab

  4. A task pane will appear on the right side of the document. Select which language you would like to translate to, or the language it is in originally.

  5. The translated text will be translated in the lower part of the task pane. You can get the translation of the same text in different languages instantly as you choose the language under the option “To”

  6. If you need to translate the text into a language not listed, click Translation options and select the desired language.

  7. Keep in mind that some translation demands comprehension and understanding of cultural references. But for those who cannot afford a professional translator and just want to get the point across, this tool can be a life (and business) saver.
