Message Summary

Updated May 18, 2021: We have updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.

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

We will begin rolling this out in mid-June (previously mid-May) and expect to complete rollout by late June (previously mid-June).

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.
