    How to Turn On or Off Offer to Translate Pages in Microsoft Edge Chromium


    Microsoft has adopted the Chromium open source project in the development of Microsoft Edge on the desktop to create better web compatibility. This new Microsoft Edge runs on the same Chromium web engine as the Google Chrome browser, offering you best in class web compatibility and performance.

    The new Chromium based Microsoft Edge is supported on all versions of Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Windows Server (2016 and above), Windows Server (2008 R2 to 2012 R2), and macOS.

    Microsoft Edge will display in the same language as your system by default.

    Microsoft Edge allows you to add and remove additional languages.

    The language you added will appear at the bottom of the list of Preferred languages that are already set for Microsoft Edge. Websites you visit will appear in the first language in the list that they support.

    You can reorder your language preferences, get Microsoft Edge to offer translations, and see Microsoft Edge in a specific language.

    Added languages can be used to display Microsoft Edge in the language, offer to translate pages in the languages, and check spelling in the languages.
