If you think you're going to be working with publications in other languages, you'll be happy to know there are some translation tools available to you here in Publisher 2010. We're going to take a look at that now, using our Flyer9 publication. We're going to focus on the right-hand side of the page here. We're zoomed in to 150%, so we can read what we're working with. Let's say, for example, we want to make a French version of this flyer, or we want to have a French version right on the same page, so English and French. Well, in that case we have to select the text that we want to translate.
Let's go to this first description here, under Mandarin-infused Extra Virgin Olive Oil. I'll just simply click and drag over the content that we want to translate. Now, when we go to the Review tab on the Ribbon we have a couple of options. We can go directly to Translate Selected Text. That's the same as clicking the Research pane and then selecting that Research tool. So it's just a little bit of a shortcut. We'll click Translate Selected Text. It automatically opens our Research pane, and you're going to see your default translation languages show up.
Mine is set to English and French. You may see English to English. You just click the dropdown to choose from a wide range of different languages, including French. When you do that, you need to be connected to the Internet. I am just going to use some online services like WorldLingo. Here you can see that you direct translation in French. So if you wanted to use that, just click and drag over that. Use your keyboard shortcut to copy that, Ctrl+C. If you wanted to, just click after "each" in this case, leave a couple of spaces, and paste using Ctrl+V. Now you've got your French version in there.
You might want to just bring that down to the next line, even leave an extra space if you needed to, and you're ready to move on to the next one. If this is going to be used in a business environment, it's probably advisable that you would double-check on the translations to make sure they're accurate using a real translation service. But this is a nice little feature that will allow you to select content in your publication, and translate it to a wide variety of different languages.
