How to request translation of an intranet page

Use these instructions to submit a request for translation of an intranet page. If your intranet administrator has enabled this feature then you can request translation of any intranet page with just a few clicks. Once you submit a request it will automatically go to the designated translation manager as well as to your own manager.

The cost of translation can be built into the request form, which also automatically notes the number of words on the page. This allows you to see an accurate estimate of the expense involved in fulfilling your request.

If you don't see the options listed below, contact your intranet administrator to ask if the translation request feature is available.

Click "Translate" to request translation 

  • Step 1: Navigate to the page you would like translated.
  • Step 2: Click "Translate" on the right just below the page title, and then click "Request professional translation" from the dropdown menu that appears. This will open the "Request for translation" form in a new browser tab or window.
  • Step 3: Fill in the request form. If your manager isn't automatically listed, start typing her name in the "Manager" field and click on the matching name when it appears.
  • Step 4: When you click "OK" and submit the form emails will automatically go out to the translation manager and your manager. If your manager approves the expense, then the translation manager will have the page translated and post the multilingual versions.
