Can Microsoft Word translate my documents to and from different languages? Yes, and it's easy. Note, however, that the Office 365 version requires the Office Intelligent Services (included in the subscription) and an Internet connection for the translation feature to work.
Word asks if you want to "Test" this service the first time you use the Translation feature, which remains "On" unless (or to) you disable the service from the option menus. Additional features such as Editor, Smart Look Up, PowerPoint Designer and more are included in these services.
Word 2013 and Word 2016's respective translation functions work in the same way, except that the languages are on your local system and menu design is slightly different.
How to use the Words Translate function
1. Open a blank or existing document (if blank, enter some text).
2nd Select the text you want to translate, or press Ctrl + A to select the entire document.
3. Under the Review tab Language group, select Translate> Selection (or Translate> Document ).
4th The first time you use this feature, the Word dialog box displays Use Intelligent Services . Click the button Turn on (or it will not work).
5th The translator box (called Research box in 2013 and 2016) is opened. Make sure the section says English if it is the correct source language. Then click on the down arrow in the section To and select a translation language from the drop-down list.
6th Click the button Insert and the text you selected in your document or selected text is translated directly into the language you selected.

Currently, Microsoft Word supports 62 different languages.
