    Navigate to the Language Settings menu under Site Information > View All Site Settings. After that, make it possible for pages and news to be translated into a number of different languages. Choose the users who will be your translator(s) for the pages (here’s a pro tip: you can also use Office 365 groups!) and then select the Save button.

  • Step 2: Translators will then translate the page

    When the email is sent, your translator (or translators) will receive an email alerting them that the page is now ready to be translated and giving them the opportunity to do so. They use the link that was provided to access the page and then manually translate the material that is displayed there.

  • Step 3: Publish the translated page

    After that, the translator will publish the page that has been translated. In the event that approvals are activated, receiving one is necessary before the publish function can be carried out. After the page has been published, you will be able to toggle between viewing it in English and the language you have chosen at any time (s). You can accomplish this by using the drop-down menu that is located to the right of the options that say “follow” and “share.”
