Open an online document with the same version as you have on your computer
Opening an online document with the same version as you have on your computer can be tricky. Here are five tips to make sure you get it right
1) Ensure that the file format is identical.
2) Open a second tab and view the page in both English and in Spanish (or any other language).
3) If text is highlighted in one of these languages, then use a different translation from the second tab (in this case, English).
4) If text is not highlighted in either window, then go ahead and translate using whichever one has been translated more recently or better.
Right click and select translate
- Right-click on the document you want to translate and select Translate with Google Translate.
- A new window will open up in your browser with the translated document.
- You can then save this translated document by clicking on File and then Save As.
- If you need to make any changes to the translation, you can do so by clicking on the Edit button.
- When you are done making changes, click on Save and wait a few seconds before opening it back up again to see if there are any more mistakes that need fixing.
- You can also use the Suggestion Tool that is located at the top of your screen when editing a document in order to get suggestions from Google about words or phrases that may be difficult to understand or replace with synonyms or paraphrases for better comprehension by the reader.
Select target language
If you’re working on a document in Microsoft Word and need to translate it into another language, there’s no need to copy and paste your text into Google Translate. With a few clicks, you can use the built-in translation feature in Microsoft Office to do the job for you. Here are five tips to get the most out of this handy tool. The first tip is to click anywhere within the word or sentence that you want to be translated. The cursor will change to a green underline so that you know where to start translating. The second tip is that while the text is being translated, if you find that something has been translated incorrectly or there are additional words which should be added or removed from the original sentence, then go ahead and make those changes directly in Google Translate without having to switch back and forth between Microsoft Word and Google Translate.
Click Translate again
If you’re not happy with the results of your first translation, click the Translate button again. This time, select a different source language. For example, if you’re translating from English to Spanish, try selecting French or German as your source language. Click Translate again: If you are unhappy with the first result, try clicking on Translate once more and then choose a different source language. For instance, if you are translating from English to Spanish, trying selecting French or German as your source language. There are many other sources languages available, but it’s best to start by using a relatively common one. In most cases, this will work just fine. If it doesn’t give you what you need, use another one until you find the one that suits your needs best.
