I know that Microsoft Office Publisher has a section under the tools pull
down menu to convert text. Can someone help with this?

No, you need a translator for that.

Publisher?

Under the Language selection is there also a Translation button like in Word
2003? (I'm using an older version of Pub).

You can get at least a rough translation here:

That doesn't translate - and even if you use the translation function,
machine translation is iffy at best. Think about how easily things can be
misinterpreted in English. Now imagine trusting a machine to get your
meaning across. Scary thought, isn't it?

JoAnn,

I know what you mean; often I go to the Italian translator to say something
in Italian from English words. The translator program doesn't know if I mean
"Right" (Correct) or "Right" (from Left). And then going from Italian you
might get "Up the street the soldiers are marching down."
If it really serious, I call one of my Paesani to get it right, or do I mean
correct?? Smile

ciao,

don

I have used Systran to translate Japanese beading websites. It is rather
humorous. If the site has clear diagrams, I don't bother with the
translations any more.

Machine translators work ok but you need to have an understanding of the
language so you can patch it up.
So if your 1/2 literate...it may raise you up a notch Smile

The one in Word does...well sorta...it ties you to online machine
translator. Certainly nothing I would translate my great merican novel with
though.
