Join Jess Stratton for an in-depth discussion in this video Spell-checking and translating a doc, part of Google Docs Essential Training.
- A great feature of Google Docs is how easy it is…to translate it into another language…to send to somebody else.…Before translating, I do suggest…running it through the spell checker,…which you should do anyway, even if you're not translating.…To do that, select Tools, Spelling.…You have the choice to either Change a suggestion,…Ignore it, or Add it to the Dictionary.…Adding it to the dictionary is a good idea…if it's a name that's going to come up a lot…in your documents, for example, an employee's name.…
In this case, though, I'm going to Ignore,…and my spell checker is done.…From here, I'm going to choose Tools again,…and now I'll choose Translate document.…The first thing I need to do is…create a new document title.…It defaults to Translated copy of your document title,…but I'm going to change this.…I'm going to translate it into French,…so I'll write French version.…The next thing you have to decide is…what language you're going to translate it into.…
I'm going to choose French.…I'll click the blue Translate button,…
