New feature: Message translation in Teams

Inline message translation is a new Microsoft Teams feature. This feature allows your users who receive a message (from another Teams user) in a different language from their own, to click the translate button to see that message translated to their client’s language. We’ll be gradually rolling this out to all customers in mid-July, and the roll out will be completed worldwide by the end of July.

This message is associated with Office 365 Roadmap ID: 31475.

How does this affect me?
Inline message translation is being rolled out off by default for your tenant. If you wish to allow users to translate messages inline within the Teams client, then you can turn this setting ON in the Microsoft Teams and Skype for Business Admin Center.

This rollout is excluded from Office 365 subscriptions in our Office 365 Government Community Cloud and Office 365 Germany environments.

What do I need to do to prepare for this change?
You don’t need to do anything, but you may consider turning the setting ON to allow users to translate messages inline within the Teams client.
