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 downloaded the translator today. I have MO 2007 installed in my machine. However at run time the installer throws a message 'Microsoft Translator was not added because office 2003 or 2007 is not installed in this computer". Would you please suggest how to troubleshoot this.

  • The instructions at show how to manually install Microsoft Translator for Office 2007. This has the same effect as running the installer.

  • This is not applicable to me, as I have MS Office 2010 installed on my computer at work. Is there any other solution? I am, mainly, looking to translate the entire Excel (2010) file (mainly from English to Excel)

  • Hi Elizabeth,

    Microsoft Translator is available in Office 2010 (no need to download anything).  If you go to the Review tab, you will see a Translate button on the ribbon.  For more information about the translation options in Office 2010, I recommend taking a look at the documentation provided here:

    Hope that helps!

    We don't currently support the Croatian languages, but will in the future.  We will announce languages that we ship as they come available here.

  • Hi MS

    I love the translationtools that has come. Google translate and yours.

    I have to use both of your since you complement one another very well. when I don't find what I'm looking for I look the other place.

    One thing.

    I am native danish and of course use transl eng dan, dan eng.

    I like to have bookmarks from google translate english 2 danish and danish to english. This makes it very easy for me to have both pages up. This helps me in the way that it's a bit slow to navigate the cursor. You could argue that I could load two pages and have a setting on each, and yes this I could do. But I'd have to set'em up seåerately each time I visit bing translate. Could you please have this in your considerations.

    Kind regards Peter
