If you're following along with me in the previous lesson you know that the Research pane allows you to translate content if you want to. There is also a new feature here in OneNote 2010 known as the Mini Translator if you need to get a quick translation. I am going to try it out with our Two Trees13 notebook in the Recipes section with Veggie Lasagna selected. Here in this note at the very top we have a paragraph. So let's just click-and-drag over the description of our Veggie Lasagna here, and let's go up to the Review tab, and without choosing the Research pane we can go directly to Translate and if we wanted to translate the selected text, this will launch our Research task pane and take us directly to in this case Translation and down below whatever language you have selected, you will see a translation for the selected content.
In this case an entire paragraph down below. So you could actually, if you wanted to borrow this. You could copy it and create a bilingual document or a page here in your notebook. But what if you just want a quick translation? You don't need to actually borrow the content. Let's just close up our Research task pane and we will go to the Translate drop-down and here's the new feature. It's called the Mini Translator. You'll see the current language selected. In my case it's French. You can point to a word or select an entire phrase like we have here to see a quick translation.
First of all, you might want to choose your desired language and that's right at the bottom of this menu. So if you want to choose a different language, maybe German for example, and click OK, now when you turn this on, everything will be translated for you from English to German, and German appears as the Mini Translator language. So when we click this, all we have to do is either hover over a word or select an entire group of words like we have here and you'll notice when you hover over the selection, a little window appears.
It's dimmed, but when you start moving up towards it, you actually see the translation. There it is. You've even got buttons to the Research pane, a Copy button, and if you click Play, you're going to hear the English version of this and there is the German translation. So you can compare what you're hearing to what you're seeing in the desired language. When you move down below, just clicking any old word, you'll see just that word now is being translated. All you have to do is click to see a quick translation for a single word, the word you click in, or select an entire phrase, and with the Mini Translator, you'll be able to see a translation.
When you're done with it, remember to go back to the Translate button and toggle this back off by clicking Mini Translator if you find it annoying that a translation shows up every time you move your mouse around. That's how you turn it off. So you go back there to turn it on when you need it. Brand-new in OneNote 2010.
