    HELP : Translate from Arabic to English Using VBA & Microsoft Translate Azure Service

    Hi Guys, Gurus and Geniuses

    I am a noob and need your help.

    My boss want to me to physically translate 2500 excel Arabic entries into English - one cell at a time using inbuilt translate function. It is driving me nuts.

    Does someone have VBA code that I can reuse. The aim is to read Arabic data from cell(A1) and get English translation pasted into cell(B1). The process should loop till end of the file.

    Microsoft has a translate service on azure market place. It would be wonderful if I can use it. Their quality is good and free account limits are 2,000,000 characters...which works well for me. Cannot charge company for this service.

    Please please please help.

    Regards

    dzdigger

    Most certainly not my code, I just remembered running across it awhile ago.

    Credit for writing the code appears to go to Patrick O'Beirne.
    I'm interested in starting a career working with VBA, if anyone knows of any opportunities!
