Microsoft Translator for Outlook
Translator for Outlook is an add-in that translates email messages to different languages on the fly. The translation is immediate and is displayed next to the reading pane in your mailbox.
When you install the add-in, you’re asked for your Microsoft 365 or Outlook.com email address and password. The add-in is then associated with your email account so you can use it in any of your Outlook clients without having to install it each time. For example, install the add-in on Outlook (version 2016 and up) and you will also find it in Outlook 2016 for Mac (2016 and up), Outlook on the web, Outlook.com, and the Outlook app on your phone.
Install the free add-in from the Microsoft Apps Store.
Launch the add-in.
Once the Translator for Outlook is installed, a “Translate Message” button appears on your Outlook ribbon.
Now you can translate your email message.
- Select the message you want to translate.
- From the Home tab on the Outlook ribbon, select the “Translate Message” button.
- In the Translator window, select the language to which you’ll translate your message.
- The translated message is displayed. Select X at the top of the Translator window to close it.
