Excel Translate Button

A simple Microsoft Excel feature for effective multilingual spreadsheets.

  • Open Excel and have ready the spreadsheet or data you want to translate.

  • Select the range of cells that contain the text you want to translate. You can click and drag to select multiple cells, or use Ctrl+Click to select individual cells.

  • In the Search bar, type Translate, or in the Excel ribbon, click the "Review" tab and then click "translate"

  • A sidebar will appear on the right side of the Excel window. In the sidebar, you'll see the "From" and "To" language options. Excel will assume your "from" language is your systems default. Change if necessary.
