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 think I already have it in Word but am just too dumb to use it. Thanks a lot. I don't know what to do.

  • I have used the translator and it does work.   However, I have one problem, the document that I had tranlated had pictures added to it and once it was translated, the pictures were not visible.  How can I translate the document and keep the pictures on it?

  • does this also work for windows 2010

  • Hello Wolf,

    Do you mean "Office 2010"?  Office 2010 has the Microsoft Translator button in the ribbon.  Click [Review] and you’ll see the Translate button in the ribbon.

    This is available not only for Word, but also for other Office programs.

    See more details at  

    Hope that this is helpful.  Thanks.  Takako (Microsoft Translator team)

  • Hi Mary,

    I thought I posted my comment(s) last week in response to your question.  Looks like it didn’t go through.

    To create a translation document with picture(s), use selected-text(s) translation instead of a whole document translation.

    Basically, you select your text(s); translate them into the language you want to see; and insert the translated sentence(s) into the document.  You can get detailed information on the selected text translation at the following sites.

    Hope that this is helpful.  Thanks.  Takako (Microsoft Translator team)

  • Hi habimana ngoma,

    Is your letter one of the languages supported by Microsoft Translator? Which version of Office do you have installed? Please let me know if you've installed the Microsoft Translator for Microsoft Office. If not, please install using the corresponding installer and let me know if it works for your letter.

  • this is so kool i love it but yall neet to make a 2011 version.

  • Hi yasmeen,

    For Office 2010, you don't need the installer.  Office 2010 has the Translate button.  

    Go to the Review tab, so that you can see the Translate button.

    The following site might be helpful.

    Let me know if any questions on how to use the translate feature for Office programs.

    Thanks for using MS Translator!


  • I did come across a verbal translator tool but I can find where it was in Microsoft..when I trans  from english to spanish..there was verbal trans beside the written trans, I tried to find it again but cant..can anyone help?

  • Hi Edward,

    I'm assuming you mean our Text To Speech (TTS) option, which is available on our main site (  When you translate from one language to another, if the target language (the one you're translating to) supports TTS, you will see a Speak button.  When you press this button, you will hear the translation. Unfortunately, this option is not available in Office, but only on our main site and through our API.

    I hope this answers your question.

  • I just realised I may have a major break through with my French class if I translate the lesson into French. Wow that would be a great help for my 'students' and for me, progress is so welcome, so we try all means of ways to help. We do this on a voluntary basis.
