I need someone to help me understand how translation is supposed to work.  I looked in the Help, but couldn't find anything.  What is it for?  When will it translate?  Is it automatic or do I have to do something to cause it to translate?

 

Thanks!

Hey @Deleted - we recently published an article which will probably answer your top questions. Please give it a try. https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Articles/Translate-in-Microsoft-Edge/m-p/635914 - Happy to answer any follow-up questions.

 

@amitkun 

 

Great.  Thanks for the link. 

 

It seems to work well on some pages, but not all.  For example, on https://www.etne.kommune.no/?cat=147990&folderid=62927 it does not translate the page.  I don't get the drop down window offering to translate the page and if I click on the icon and say to translate I get an error "Sorry!  Couldn't translate page".  I checked and Norwegian is in the list of supported languages.  The Google Translate extension has no problem translating the page.

 

Thanks,

Bill

Hey @Deleted thanks for reporting. I have reported this page. Kindly use the smiley to report any further pages where translate does not work.

Also request for languages that you would like to see!

@amitkun 

 

OK, thanks.  I just reported a couple more pages that didn't work as expected.

 

Thanks,

Bill
