PowerPoint offers a little gizmo for translating words and phrases from one language to another. PowerPoint’s translator 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.

Select the word or phrase that needs translating and follow these steps to translate text:


Go to the Review tab.


Click the Translate button.

The Research task pane opens.


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.
