How to Auto Translate a Site Page in Edge for Android?

Learn how to auto-translate the website pages from foreign languages to local native languages using Microsoft Edge real-time translator powered by Bing.

If you are reading any thesis or referring to any article that is written in a language that is unknown to you, then Microsoft Edge for Android has a built-in translator that can help you.

Let’s say you’re referring to a guide which is written in French but you do not understand a single word of it. The Microsoft edge will automatically read and translate the French into your preferred language. You can also select a default language that will automatically translate any foreign language into the default language that you had selected. It happened to me a few days back when I landed on a website that was in German. I had no idea about the language but the instructions on the website were important to me. The Microsoft Edge translate was the only way out.

Though Microsoft Edge does not have an option available to configure the translator (or at least I haven’t seen yet). To invoke the translator settings, you need to visit any foreign language website or content and adjust according to your needs. The edge translation is very efficient when you want to read something in a language you do not know.
