    Como puedo escribir un correo en español y enviarle traducido al ruso ?

  15. Hola Miguel Angel,

    La forma más sencilla de hacer esto es traducir el texto del español al ruso usando nuestro traductor, y después copiar y pegar el resultado en el programa de e-mail que esté utilizando.

    I've tried to find a Dodig days than Javascrit to my page. The translator widget does not work on my page. Where I can get it and embed it on my page for entering can translate? Thanks.

  17. Hi Jose,

    Could you give me more information about your issue? From your post, I'm guessing that your Web page does not support Javascript?

  19. Hi Jose,

    ¿Utiliza Framekiller en su sitio Web?  Esto puede impedir que nos traducir su sitio Web.  Se ha introducido su sitio Web en nuestra página Web (http://www.microsofttranslator.com).  Las partes de texto de su sitio Web pueden ser traducidas.  La esperanza de que esto sea útil.  Gracias.  Takako

    [English] Do you use Framekiller on your website?  This can prevent us from translating your website.  I typed your website at our homepage.  The text parts of your website can be translated.  Hope that this is helpful.  Thank you.

  20. Hi Jose,

    Una pregunta más.  ¿Qué navegador utilizas?  Cuando se ha introducido la URL de tu en nuestra página Web (http://www.microsofttranslator.com), nuestro visor bilingüe podía traducir su sitio en IE8.  Esto puede estar relacionado con los tipos de tu navegador.  

    [One more question.  What browser you're using?  When I typed your URL at our homepage (http://www.microsofttranslator.com), our bilingual viewer could translate your site on IE8.  This can be related to types of your browser.]—-Takako

  21. Jose says:

    Habéis encontrado una solución a mi problema. Hace días que os mande varios mensajes. Gracias.

  22. Hi Jose,

    La página funciona bien con nuestro traductor con IE8.  ¿Qué navegador usas?  También publicado algunos comentarios.  Espero que estos son útiles.  Gracias.

    the translator voice is very poor

  27. Hi Philip,

    Thank you for your feedback.  Would you mind letting us know what language voice you're referring to?

    We continuously work on the improvement of voice quality.  Thank you.

    a wonderful service…gracias, Obrigado y cok tesh ekurederem…..

  29. mopsley says:

    I think this is wonderful. Thank you so much. It has speeded up my language studies enormously.

  30. Hongjenlee@yahoo.com says:

    Can set up the default translation language ?

  31. Hello Hongjenlee,

    Microsoft Translator will honor your Internet Explorer settings, so if you set the default language in Internet Explorer, that will be your default "to" language on the "Translate this page" link in Bing.  To set your default language in Internet Explorer, go to Tools and select Internet Options.  From there, select the General Tab (which is likely already selected), and press the Languages button.  You will see one or more languages in a list.  If the language you're interested in is not in the list, select Add and you can add it from the list that is provided.  Once you have your "default" language on the list, move it up to the top.  Once it is at the top, Microsoft Translator will use it as your default "to" language in Bing.

    Hope that helps!!

    como eu posso traduzir o office 2010

  33. Hello Rui,

    Microsoft Translator is fully integrated with Office 2010.  Just look for the Translate Button on the ribbon in Word or Outlook, and you'll be able to translate all or part of the current document or e-mail.

    Hope this helps,

  37. Hmong User says:

    how do we get ahold of some one to fix words that are mis-translated?

  38. hmong user says:

    my apologies…  mis-spelled would be the correct term….

  39. Hi Hmong User,

    Are you looking for a speller for English or Hmong?  Or, something else?  

    If you’re looking for the English speller, you can use Word to check your misspellings.  It might be a little bit inconvenient for you but that’s one way to check English spellings.

    We don’t know much about the Hmong speller unfortunately.  If you have any suggestion(s), let us know.

    not persian translator

  41. Issy says:

    I used to be able to hover my mouse over words to translate them individually. Is this service no longer available?

  42. Hi Issy,

    That feature still works.  If you go to http://microsofttranslator.com, and specify a website to translate, in the translation you should still be able to hover over a sentence to see the original source.  Alternately, if you use BingBar in Internet Explorer, you'll have the same feature.

  43. Hi Ali,

    Since this is an older blog posting, the list of languages is a little out of date.  Microsoft Translator does currently support Persian.

    Microsoft преводач е великолепна придобивка за мен,но не успявам да го инсталирам правилно,и често оставам без него при посещение на друга страница!В Google се справих блестящо и рядко се налага да го активирам с десния бутон на мишката.В Microsoft не ми върви,дори не успявам да превеждам съобщенията в пощата,което ме принуждава да използвам основно браузъра на Google Chrome.
