Microsoft Edge browser out of the box offers an inbuilt Translation feature. With the help of this feature, users can translate web pages into other languages. The Dev team behind the Edge browser now improved the translation feature in the latest update.
Starting with the latest version of Microsoft Edge in Canary channel, the built-in translator now offers the option to translate the selected text. The feature is useful when you only want to translate selected phrase in language of your choice.
Translate Selected Text in Microsoft Edge
In case, you want to translate selected text in Microsoft Edge browser then here’s what you need to do:
Make sure, you’re using the latest version of Microsoft Edge Canary v87.0.637.0.
Next, head over the web page from where you want to translate the selected text.
Select the text, make a right-click and then from the context menu select Translation selection to English (or Default language).
Doing this will instantly translate the selected text to the browser default language. You can check this gif to see the feature in action.
The option is available in the latest version of Edge Canary but, if this is a controlled rollout, another group of insiders could have it in the Dev version. In case, you’re not seeing the option, then wait for few updates.
