Teams Tip 2: Auto-translating your conversations


You can use Microsoft Teams to translate your conversations.

Keep in mind that this feature is not enabled by default, so your Microsoft Teams Global Administrator or your Office 365 Global Administrator must enable it.

Once it is enabled however, your users will be able to translate their conversations to the preferred language of their Microsoft Teams client.

So if, for example, your client language is set to French, then you’ll be able to translate most of your conversations from their original text into French.
