Language Translations

for global continuous improvement teams that speak multiple languages

1) How to change the language for

Training web pages (like this one)

<<<<< Try it

It slows down our web pages too much to provide the Google Translate widget on every Systems2win training page, but we provide it on this page — so you can see how it works.

If you like it —

then follow the instructions below to use Google Translate with any of the 200+ Systems2win web pages that have training for kaizen, lean, and six sigma process improvement.

How to use Google Translate

See animated image >>>

In the address bar at the top of your browser...

copy the URL for the web page
that you want to translate

In a new browser window, go to Google Translate

In the left side...

paste the URL for the web page
that you want to translate

(or just type ""
to start with the Systems2win home page)

In the right side...

select your desired language,
then click the button to 'Translate'

To turn it off

To switch back to English, it is best to close the entire Google Translate toolbar.

so that you are viewing the original web page, rather than Google's (non-secure) translation.

Google keeps changing and hiding the ability to close their Translate toolbar,
so the surest way is to simply re-open the original web page
(which is why we suggest to use Google Translate in a new browser window)

2) How to translate

Translate a document

Word or PDF documents

Same as above,
but rather than pasting the URL for a web page,

click the link to 'Translate a document',
then use the button to 'Browse'
to select your document to translate

then select your desired language,
and click the button to 'Translate'

3) How to translate Video captions

On any video page...

The (large) video at the top of the page has English-only captions.

  5. Click the 'Settings' icon (round gear-like image)
  6. Select the dropdown menu beside 'Subtitles/CC'

  9. Click 'OK'

4) How to change the language for

a Systems2win Excel template

If your company has purchased language translations...

then in the Systems2win menu, click 'Translations and Substitutions'> 'Select Translations and Substitute Phrases for THIS Template'

Systems2win menu > Translations and Substitutions

And then select from the dropdown list of available languages.

Instantly, every sheet in the workbook now shows your chosen translation.

Tip: When you download your free trial templates,

you can switch between English and Spanish, to see for yourself how this feature works.


5) How to change the language for

the Systems2win Menu

and dialogs, and error messages

In the Systems2win menu in the Excel Ribbon bar, select Translations & Substitutions> Select Language for the Systems2win Menu & Dialogs

Systems2win menu > Select Language


Even if you have not purchased a language translation

you can still change the language of your Systems2win menu
