Translating Foreign-Language Text

PowerPoint offers for translating words and phrases from one language to another. The translation is good only for translating single words and well-known phrases. To translate an entire PowerPoint presentation, you have to seek the help of a real, native speaker. Follow these steps to translate text:

  1. Select the word or phrase that needs translating and then go to the Review tab.
  2. Click the Translate button. The Research task pane opens.
  3. Under Translation, choose a From option and a To option.
    For example, to translate from English to Spanish, choose English in the From drop-down list and Spanish in the To drop-down list.
    The translation, if PowerPoint can make it, appears in the task pane.
