Am hoping someone can please help with the translation features now built-in to Edge. We are very keen to try to use these to enable our users to choose to translate SharePoint news and other pages into their preferred language.
We have tried going to the Language settings in Edge and choosing "Offer to translate pages that aren't in a language I read":
We would hope this would then display the Language button in Edge next to the Favourites button, meaning users can choose a language to translate into:
One colleague DOES see this appear but a bunch of us do not. Has anyone any thoughts on this at all? Is it possible to activate it for all?
@Kamal_Upadhyay are you able to help at all please?!

Generally, if you open a page written in a different language than your preferred languages in browser settings, Edge will automatically prompt you to translate it.
If it does not prompt, you can still manually translate webpage using the browser settings. Check this documentation for more information: Use Microsoft Translator in Microsoft Edge browser
From above link:
The Translate icon appears in the address bar when you go to a web page that’s written in a foreign language. A language is considered foreign to you if it's not included in your Preferred languages list in Settings. To add or remove languages from the list, in Microsoft Edge, go to Settings and more > Settings > Languages.

@ganeshsanap This is understood, the question is why does it appear only sometimes.
@AnetaKotucha From our research we found it was dependent on the type of content on the page. It appears for news pages and other text prominent pages, not for home pages and similar. Also only works on modern not classic. This is only our non-confirmed findings.

@AnetaKotucha It should work for all site. Right click > Translate to English option is available for all sites (even sites with English language).
This option is available on Chrome browser as well.
