How to Access Translate (Word) 

To access Translate in AP for Word, toggle on Translate from the Lightning menu. It is the final option. 

How to Use Translate

Once translation is enabled you will see it in your toolbar. 

Pro-tip: Using the double-wide version of the toolbar (in Chrome) gives you extra room to see and use the translate tool.

To use the translate tool just select the language you’re writing in (English in this example.) and the language you want to translate to (French in this example). Type the text in the box and click “Insert” and the comment will send in your target language.

Note: If you want to temporarily turn off translation just click the “On” button and it will change to “Off” which will temporarily disable the translation. You can also send both the original and translated comment together by clicking on “Single” and changing it to “Dual”. 

The single/dual option allows you to insert just the translated text (single) or the original and translated text together (dual).
