  2. Tap the More horizontal 3-dots icon menu for options and choose the Settings icon.
  3. Tap on the General menu and select Microsoft Translator.
  4. Enable the toggle switch for the Translate Pages option.

One can choose and change the default translation language from the translation bar appearing on the website. We can also reset the translation settings under Settings > Translate > Reset translate settings.

  2. Open any website that’s in a native language (e.g., Japanese or Chinese).
    It will invoke the translate pop-up bar.

The foreign text will automatically change to the selected language.

Enable the Auto-Translation for Unknown Languages

Auto-translation automatically detects the foreign language and translates it into the selected language. Hence, we no longer need to request a translation manually. Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Launch Microsoft Edge on Android.
  2. Open any website that’s non-native language.
    It will open the translate options bar.
  3. Tap on the More horizontal 3-dots icon menu for options.
  4. Select the ‘Always translate the page in X language to Y‘ option.

It will automatically translate the page from the X-language to the Y-preferred language. You can also turn off the auto-translation from the same options menu by selecting the option — Turn off auto-translation.

Bottom Line

The Edge browser uses Bing Translator to translate a website page into the selected language. You also have the option to choose auto-translation, which will automatically translate the page into the desired output language.

Edge also lets you configure it into any other language. You can use the translation options to configure it per your preferences.

Similarly, you can enable the page translation in Edge on a computer. Even the desktop browser allows you to choose and change the default output language.
