How to Translate in PowerPoint | Quick Tips & Tutorial for your presentations

Businesspeople, teachers, speakers… they all end up needing translations at one point in their careers. That’s only natural, when you have such amazing presentations, you attract people from all over the world, and it can happen that our audience doesn’t speak the same language. But worry not, because in this tutorial you are going to learn how to translate PowerPoint slides in four easy steps!

The first  thing you need is to open the presentation in PowerPoint. For this example, we have used the colorful and funny template Kindergarten Sight Word Books.

How to Translate in PowerPoint Step by Step

  1. Go to Review > Translate.
  2. When the Translator menu opens, choose the language you want to translate to. The program should automatically detect the source language.
  3. Then, select the text box you want translated and it will automatically appear in the target language.
  4. If you want to change the original text and insert the translation, just click on Insert.

Unfortunately, this tool only allows you to translate one text box at a time, but it is still a great way of getting a grasp of the meaning of a presentation in another language. If you need a professional translation, we recommend hiring a translator, though.

Check them out on our website, download your favourite and put into practise the skills that you just learned!
