Download the Microsoft Translator installer for Microsoft Office

Rate This
Now you can translate your Microsoft Office documents with Microsoft Translator – right within Office! You can translate words, phrases, or even your entire document, through the Research task pane. We blogged about setting this up manually for Office 2007 or Office 2003 previously - now it's really easy!


This works for both Microsoft Office 2003 and 2007. The current default in Microsoft Office is WorldLingo – this installer will update your task pane to use Microsoft Translator as the default translator for the languages we provide.


Download the installer now and let us know what you think over in the Forum!

  • I started using this feature about a week ago and it worked fine, from Dutch or French into English (I even put a shortcut into the toolbar to make it easier to access translate. It worked great for sentences, paragraphs and words (using Alt then clicking on the word). But now it no longer works just for words or a couple of words, returning a can't be or just a bilingual dictionary entry, which cannot be inserted automatically into word. Andy yet the same words will be translated if I incorporate them into a sentence. A big mystery!

  • Quite a useful tool for me

  • I would like to have all languager to English is that pssible
