Microsoft Edge language support

This article shows how you can use Microsoft Edge settings to add a supported language to the browser. Microsoft Edge supports 96 languages on Windows and 91 languages on macOS.

Note

This article applies to Microsoft Edge version 78 or later.

Add a supported language to Microsoft Edge

Use the following steps to see the list of supported languages and then add a language to Microsoft Edge.

  1. On the browser menu bar, click the Settings and more icon (...) or type Alt+F to open the "Settings and more" menu.
  2. Under Settings, click Languages.
  3. Under Languages, click Add languages to see the list of languages you can add.
  4. In the Add languages list, you can search for a language (Search languages) or use the scroll bar to find the language you want to add.
  5. When you find the language, select the checkbox for the language and then click Add. The language you added will appear at the bottom of the list of Preferred languages that are already set for Microsoft Edge. Websites you visit will appear in the first language in the list that they support.

Change preferred languages

You can reorder your language preferences, get Microsoft Edge to offer translations, and see Microsoft Edge in a specific language. To change a language setting, click the ellipsis (...) next to the language to open for "More actions". Depending on the language, you will see one or more of the following options:

  • Display Microsoft Edge in this language.
    • On Windows, select this box and then click Restart.
    • On macOS, Microsoft Edge is displayed in the preferred language of your system. You can change the language in System Preferences>Language & Region. Restart Microsoft Edge.
  • Offer to translate pages in this language. This option is only available if you enable the Offer to translate pages that aren't in a language you read.
  • Move to the top
  • Move up
  • Remove

Note

You can also set up spellcheck options (Check Spelling) based on your preferred language settings.

Foreign language translator extension

In addition to using a foreign language in the browser, you can use the Translator for Microsoft Edge extension to translate foreign language web pages and text selections for more than 60 languages.

Note

If the translator extension doesn't work after installation, restart Microsoft Edge. If the extension still doesn't work, provide feedback through the Feedback Hub.
