Version 3.0Table of Contents
You can translate a document in MS Word in the following two ways:
1. Click the document with the right mouse button and choose Sunda Doc->Translate from the Word context menu (Fig. 1).
2. Click the Translate button on the Sunda Doc toolbar (Fig. 2). If you are using MS Word 2007 or later, the Sunda Doc toolbar appears after choosing Add-Ins from the top menu.
To choose the language pair of the translator, select Sunda Doc->Language pair from the context menu or select "Language pair" from the Settings menu (Fig. 6). The language pair can be either English-to-Finnish or Finnish-to-English depending on the user rights. It is recommended to choose Auto-Selection because then the translator automatically selects the language pair based on the source text.
The translated document is opened in a new window. The formatting of the document is retained during the translation. Translation of large files may take a few minutes.
To translate a text section in the document, first select the section and then choose Sunda Doc->Translate from the context menu or click the Translate button on the Sunda Doc toolbar. The translation result will open in a new window by default (Fig. 3). If you want the translation result to replace the original text, see Chapter 5. If you have selected a single word, the translator shows alternative translations for the selected word if possible (English-to-Finnish only).
You can listen to the translation result or source text by clicking the speaker button in the lower left corner of the translation result window.
Click the Dictionaries button on the Sunda Doc toolbar and choose "Select dictionaries" to open a dialog for selecting special dictionaries and translation settings. You can open this dialog also by choosing Sunda Doc->Translation settings from the context menu. Using correct special dictionaries can improve translation quality.
