Using the Microsoft Translator Widget for manual language translation of SharePoint sites

Here's a cool and easy way of adding "on the fly" manual language translation to your SharePoint site using the Microsoft Translator Widget.

1) Go to http://www.microsofttranslator.com/Widget/

2) Enter a site address and site language. (If you are translating from English, you can use http://www.google.com/)

3) Select the desired color and width for your widget, and then select the desired language for translation.

4) Agree to terms and select to generate code. Copy the code displayed in the output box.

5) Paste the code in a Content Editor Web Part on your site.

6) Select the button in the Widget to execute language translation.

  1. Hi,

    Thanks for sharing this tips.

    Do you know any other web part that will allow you to translate SharePoint Online publishing site ? Currently, it does not support it and I'm looking for a workaround but I would prefer to translate the language by myself.

    Regards,

    Adrien.
