Windows Insiders can now translate foreign language web pages for 50+ languages in the Microsoft Edge browser by downloading the brand new Microsoft Translator Edge extension.
The Microsoft Translator Edge extension is one of the first group of extensions available for preview on Edge to personalize and add new features to the browser. These preview extensions are currently available only to Windows 10 Insider Preview members, and can be used with build 14291 and above.
Once installed, the translation icon will appear in the address bar when visiting a foreign-language webpage in Microsoft Edge. You can then click on the icon to instantly translate the webpage to your current Windows language. The extension works with all of the languages supported by Microsoft Translator.
If you are already a Windows Insider, you can add the extension to Edge by following the steps shown below or in the video above.
- Download the extension.
- Select Run from the download notification.
- From your Edge browser, select More (…) and then Extensions.
- Select Load extension, choose the extension folder, then click Select folder.
If you are not currently a Windows Insider, don’t worry. When fully released to mainstream builds of Windows 10, the Microsoft Translator extension will be available to the public via the Windows Store. Learn more about the Windows 10 Insider program here.
