Mini Translator

With the Microsoft Office 2010 Mini Translator, you can point to a word or selected phrase with your mouse, and the translation will be displayed in a small window. The Mini Translator also includes a Play button so you can hear an audio pronunciation of the word or phrase using a text-to-speech engine.
