    How do I disable the Translate feature in Word?


    I am running Office 2019 which I got from the university, so it's some sort of an educational edition, most importantly - it's NOT a subscription, none of the 365 stuff (can't stand the idea).

    My most recent problem with it is that anytime I open a document in another language (that is, not in English) I get a pop-up offering me to translate the text. How do I turn it off?

    I googled the issue and found that Translate is part of "intelligent Services" which can be turned on or off in the "general" tab of the Word settings. However, my edition of Word does not have any such settings at all.

    :)

    Cortana does not translate

    Hello,

    If you're trying to translate a word or a sentence, Cortana can help you do that, follow these steps:

    1. Open Cortana and type Translate.

    2. Choose ‘Translate’ under ‘Can i help you?

    3. A translation tool will pop-up, and you can choose the language you want Cortana to translate to.

    Just write the word or the sentence you want to be translated, then press
    Enter
    .

    Access the real-time translation feature by saying "Hey Cortana, how do you say" followed by the word or sentence you want to translate, and the language they want to hear it in. For example: "Hey Cortana, how do you say 'Hello' in Spanish?"

    Do note that this works only for single words, and simple phrases, for more complex sentences, you’d need to follow the steps given above.

    Let us know if you have questions.

    Regards.
