The latest update to the Microsoft Edge Insider Canary channel adds a new experimental feature for translating pages on the fly. The feature appears as a flag that users on the Canary channel can enable, which brings the ability to customize your translation preferences to the settings menu (via MSPU).
Translation was previously available to at least some Canary testers, but it looks as if it’s rolling out to a wider audience now. Once enabled, the feature works much like Google’s own automatic translation integration in Chrome.
To enable to feature, you need to be running the latest Edge Insider Canary build. Once installed, you can head to “edge://flags” in the address bar and search the page for “Translate.” From there, toggle the translation feature to “Enabled” and you’ll be prompted to restart the browser.
Once you’ve restarted Edge, you can head to the “Languages” section of the settings menu to add languages and set your preferences to have Edge offer to translate languages that you specify. You can also toggle the option to have Edge offer to translate pages in any language that you don’t read.
