      Which of our translator services are you using?

        Please add the option to change the "from" language.

        Thx.

          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,
