Translate Text to Other Languages in Microsoft Word 2007

The world has become a global village where you need to communicate with people of diverse cultures and languages. We come across people who speak different languages on the internet, or we need to communicate with different people in the global business market. Sometimes we need to translate business documents as everybody doesn’t speak the same language. Students might need to translate some facts as well as information e.g. the history of a specific country into their own language in order to learn about its history.
Everyone can’t have an access to a professional translator who could help them out in this matter. Due to this reason, word-processing programs are available who try to fulfill this requirement. Other than the different programs which fill this requirement, it is possible to translate text in Microsoft Word 2007. The feature to translate text in Microsoft Word 2007 can be used like any other translation program. In order to translate text in Microsoft Word 2007, we just have to use its built-in function.
Follow the given steps to translate word text into other languages:



  • Select the text you want to translate. You can type it there and then or you could paste it from somewhere. If you need to select the entire document, and if it is very lengthy, you can go back to the "edit" tab and click "select all." Or you can just highlight the entire or part of the text by clicking the left mouse button and dragging it across the text you want to highlight.



  • Click on Review button on Menu bar.


  • Click on Translate in the Review tab.


  • A task pane will appear on the right side of the document. Select which language you would like to translate into or the existing language it is in. Here is where you can select which language to translate to or from.


  • The selected or highlighted text will be translated in the lower part of the task pane. You can get the translation of the same text into different languages instantly as you choose the language under the option of "To".




If you need to translate the selected text into a language that is not included in the given list, click on Translation options and select the particular language you want.


This helpful feature to translate text in Microsoft Word is very handy. However, there is no substitute for a human professional translator as good and meaningful translation demands comprehension as well as understanding of cultural references, artistic quality and talent. So there are chances that the translation done by a computer program will lack profundity as well as meaning.

What is important about word choice and language when communicating with culturally diverse people


Being aware of what the word means literally, what it implies, and in what context it is applied. Although 90% of communication is non-verbal, just nuances of language can lead to miscommunication. Just what is considered appropriate speech may also require sensitivity to a cultural norm.

how does tourism bring positive impact on culture


You need to define culture. How does a 2012 Nissan Sentra affect tourism?
If you mean the effect tourism has on a local cultural group, there are many ways it can affect it positively. Culture can only develop if it faces change. Humans develop by change, so does everything they are involved in.
If a culture does not develop, it stagnates. For example, if a group of cannibals do not face the modern world where cannibalism is morally and legally wrong, they will never be able to fit into modern society, so they have to change their eating habits.
Tourism brings new ideas to a culture, and people get new insights of how the world outside of their own frame of reference think and operate. Without tourism, there would be no tourists who bring these new ideas to the culture within which they tour.
Tourism will also engender the wish in locals to see what is out there, and will encourage members of a certain cultural group to venture further than their own villages, towns or countries. When these visitors return home, they will relate their travel experiences to others, and so the culture will develop positively.
