M365 Changelog: PowerPoint Live in Teams: Slide Translation
MC245302 – Updated July 30, 2021: Microsoft has updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience. Note: Microsoft will not be moving forward with this feature in the DoD environment at this time. Microsoft will communicate via Message center when they are ready to proceed.
This new slide translation feature in Microsoft Teams (desktop) will enable all meeting attendees to translate presentation content, presented via PowerPoint Live in a Teams meeting, into a language of their choice while in private view.
This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 80601.
When this will happen
- Standard release will begin roll out end of June and complete by end of July
- GCC and GCC-High will begin roll out early August and complete by end of August.
How this will affect your organization
Meeting attendees will see the slide translation feature when the presenter uses PowerPoint Live in a Teams meeting. Each meeting attendee will be able to convert the slide show content into one of nineteen languages of their preference. This unique experience will only occur for the user requesting slide translation without interrupting the presenter or any other attendees in the meeting.
PowerPoint slide translation available in nineteen languages.
What you need to do to prepare
You might want to notify your users about this new capability and update your training and documentation as appropriate.
