— Ok Miss Smarty Bulb, I answeredyour questionlast time; I bet you cant answer
Question: How do I turn on / off the Mini Translator feature in Office 2010?
1. Click on theReviewtab, and then theTranslateButton.
2. The Mini Translator is turned on and off by simply clickingMini Translator.
IfMini Translatoricon is highlighted, it is turned on. And it will also show the translation language.
IfMini Translatoris not highlighted, it is turned off. (The translation language will still show even though its off.)
3. Now if you have Mini Translator turned on when you select text you want to translate and hover over it, the Mini Translator will appear with a translation or bi-lingual dictionary based on your settings. If the Mini Translator is turned off you will not have any pop-up when you select/hover over text.
— Hey that was kinda easy! I should have thought of a harder question! —
— Yea,right! Next time its your turn and Ill have a really good one for you! —
— Hey readers, I might need help with getting a really good question (dont tell her). —
— Oh well, anyhow, if you readers have a specific question you want answered,
just let me know, ok? Lets see if we can stump her! —
–Oh! I almost forgot! I have to thank Sandy Rivas for her help with answering this question!–
— Oh maybe youre not so smart, are you? —
–Anyhow, Sandy is a Software Development Engineer in Test at Microsoft with the Office Global Experience Platform team. Sandy is originally from Ohio in the United States – but she and her team work in Redmond, Washington, USA. It is her team that is responsible for designing, developing and testing everything to do with MiniTranslator isnt that cool? —
— Oh hey – Wirote Petchdenlarp also assisted Sandy! —

Just select some text and right-click>
Translate. You will get a translation pane right side. Click translation options inside the pane, it will open a dialog. Uncheck the Use online translation
The off answers dont work for me either!! The translator appears on every document on which I am working which is irritating. It appears often as a ghost or less often wanting to translate words or phrases I do not want translated. What do I do to prevent this?
Yeah, that doesnt seem to turn it off.
Does not turn off wise guys. Try again.
Turns it off in Word. But how the **** do you turn it off in outlook?
It worked but I had to turn off the track changes first!
Thank you. This was driving me crazy
So, maybe the question should be How did it get turned on? The off answers still dont work for me!
For some reasons, the mini translator only works on translatiing a sentence insead of a word, is there a setup setting? 2010 MS Word.
Did not work for me (the first suggestion).. Im not at work now, will try some of the other options tomorrow. But really, should it be that hard? Huh, Microsoft? Should it be that hard?
I turned it off in Word and the closed Word and Outlook. Looks like its now turned off for both. Im with Jakazar, why make this so hard, Microsoft?
I was able to turn it off in both Word and Outlook by clicking to see that MiniTranslate was on (highlighted) and turning it off (unhighlight). In Word the control for it ison the Review Tab in the Languages group and in Outlook it has a little icon of
its own on the toolbar. For extra surety I closed both and reopened voila! No More MiniTranslator! Annoying little thing I agree, the most annoying since the paperclip.
