How to auto-translate a page

How to get an instant auto-translation of a page

Use these instructions to get instant auto-translations of pages on your ThoughtFarmer intranet. With just two clicks you can view machine-translated versions of any page. "Machine translation" means a computer has translated from one language to another, as opposed to human translation by someone fluent in both languages.

An auto-translation can give you a sense of what a page is about, but don't rely on it for detailed and accurate translations. Humans still have a hand up on machines in this arena!

Click "Translate" button above page content

Virtually every page of your intranet includes a translate button. However, you won't see this button if your intranet administrator has not enabled your intranet to function in more than one language.
  • Step 1: Click "Translate" to the right and just above the main page contents.
  • Step 2: Click "Auto translate to..." for the language version you want to see. The page will reload showing a machine translated version of the content in the language you selected.
  • Step 3: To return to viewing the original page click on the page title in the breadcrumb trail or click the "Reload" button in your browser.
