The ‘from language’ is automatically detected by the tool, thus eliminating the need for you to select the original language. It makes the process much simpler and smoother.

Next, you will come across the ‘translate scope’ option. Here, you can choose to translate:

  • a single element
  • translate the current slide
  • translate the entire presentation

For instance, if you have a presentation with four slides, you can translate them all with a single click.

Let’s illustrate this with an example. Suppose you want to translate your presentation to Spanish. All you have to do is select Spanish as your target language, choose the current slide under the ‘translate scope’ option, and then click on the ‘Translate’ button. In about a second, your slide will be translated into Spanish. It’s that simple!

What’s more? If you want to keep a copy of your original presentation, FileDrop allows you to duplicate the presentation. You can then translate the duplicate version and maintain a backup copy immediately.
