    Thank you for posting on the forum.

    The Edge Translator Add-in uses auto-detect as the from language. You can only select the to-language. If a page has several languages then please select the text you’d like to translate and use right-click to translate the text.

    If you still think it should be seen as a different language please copy the text and paste it in https://www.bing.com/translator/.

    Kind regards,
    Gwenda
