    Need to translate from Arabic language to English

    Dear all

    I need to translate cells in a column with more than 2500 entries of Arabic into English language.
    Can anyone suggest a formula, or easy way to do that.

    Re: Need to translate from Arabic language to English

    Dear GamingGuy,

    A while ago I have written a solution for someone else to translate Spanish text into English. This solution was based on the Spanish entries being in column A, and the resulting English entries were to be written in column B. The necessary code is attached in this message. I have already changed the translation parameters to allow translation from Arabic to English as per your request (i.e. FromLanguage = 'ar')

    You need to go the VBA editor Alt-F11, insert a module and copy/paste the code below into that module. After that running the pub_sub_TranslateText will automtically attempt to translate all existing entries in column A and the results should be shown in column B.

    I have no experience with the Arabic language, so I hope it works.

    It would help if you could let me know the statement in error (i.e. which line is highlighted in the code when the error occurs)
