Dynamic translation - Azure & DeepL Translation

Dynamic Translation enables real-time translation of text and content directly on your SharePoint Site by linking your tenant with a Translation Service. Currently, Powell supports two compliant services: Azure Cognition and Deepl.


🧙 Administrators

Select a translation service 

Defining a translation service will have two principal features : 



To enable a translation service, open your tenant settings : 


Then open Environment Settings / Translation Service


Depicted, this section offers three potential options:

  1. No dynamic translation: Choose this if you don't require a translation service.
  2. Azure Cognitive
  3. DeepL

You can select any of these translation services. However, in both cases, you'll need to generate a service key.

For Azure Cognitive, please refer to this documentation, and for DeepL, follow the instructions outlined in this documentation.

Once you have your service key, add it to the "Service key" field and save your tenant. 


You can also add service parameters, allowing you to define different terms and the desired value. For example, we can decide that Powell will be automatically translated as "Powell Software" or define which insulting or vulgar words will be censored.

You can check for the list of parameters available for Azure cognition here and DeepL here
