Yammer Message Translation enables your organization to easily translate messages to and from supported languages. Thanks to the power of Microsoft Translator, translating Yammer conversations into your native language is now possible with the click of a button. When a colleague posts a message in a language other than your own or one you already posted in, you will be able to translate that message from within the Yammer thread.

With this new feature, Yammer is helping companies like Earth Hour, which employs more than 130,000 people in 24 countries, as well as Telefónica, a nonprofit with just an eight-person staff but 800 global volunteers, communicate and connect to one another by removing geographical and linguistic boundaries. Global companies with employees spread across the world can now invite staff to communicate in the language of their choice.

How it works

Simply post a message in your preferred language, and then click on the Translate option beneath the message.

As a Yammer user, you simply post in your preferred language and click on the “translate” menu at the bottom of each post or comment from you colleagues when it is not in a language you understand.
