Translate Word documents with Office 2007 addon


There are times we need to translate whole Word document into different language and then send it to a recipient. While there is manual way of using online translation services like Google Translate. You will need to paste contents in online editor, translate text and then paste back translated content in Word document. This will take lot of time and Word document will lose all its formatting.

  1. There is a great online tool which does this using the Google translate API.

    It translates word documents, excel sheets, and powerpoint presentations while maintaining the document’s original layout.

    I use it every day.
