Translate text in a different language
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/word-help/translate-text-in-a-differen...

"You can translate text written in a different language, such as phrases or paragraphs, individual words (by using the Mini Translator), or translate your whole file with Microsoft Office. To translate text into some languages, you might also have to satisfy certain operating system requirements for them –right-to-left languages need specific support, for example.

Note The Translate command is only available in the following Microsoft Office programs: Word, Outlook, OneNote, PowerPoint, Publisher, Excel and Visio.

You can also create a document in one language, and then use a machine translation service to translate it to a different language. For more information, see the Translate a whole file section."

Just select the text that you want to translate, then on the REVIEW tab, select TRANSLATE, then choose from the options how you want it to be translated. I use the Mini-Translator, for example, when I’m reading a document in German, which I can read to a point but sometimes come across individual words that I don’t know. The Mini-Translator will let me roll over the text with the mouse and give me a translation in a toolbar.
