when you say translation are you looking for a converter to change text from one language to another?

I'm running Office 2003, and all you need to do is

1.  Select Tools
2.  Select Language
3.  Select Translate.
4.  A docked dialog should appear on the right side of word.
5.  Just type the text into the box or select one of the radio buttons.
6.  The results window will show you the translation.

I'm not sure which version it appeared in, since I moved from 97-> 2003

PS-  Remember the translator is not context sensitive.  Worksheet -> Work blanket or something, so be careful if you use it.

Also,
  My translator appeared with a standard installation of Office, so if your isn't there, it most likely not available with your version.

Hi swtir.  Not sure what version of office or word that you have, but if you haven't already done so, make sure that you download the appropriate translation or language pack from MS's website.  Here are some for office XP.  http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/results.aspx?Scope=DC&Query=language

good luck!
