2. Right click on the highlighted text.
3. Select Translate from the context menu.
4. The research pane will open.
5. Select the language to which you want to translate.
6. A translation of your selection will be shown under the WorldLingo section.

You can also select Translate whole document from the research pane to open a web page that contains a translation of your entire document.
