Translation button

Would be great to have the option of inserting a translation button into email so clients could translate English text into Spanish!

Hi @MCDPCOMM at this time there is not a translation tool available in our system. It is however a feature request we are continuing to track through this thread. The more requests we receive in this thread, the higher a priority it can be given.

Hello,

Our school district has been a subscriber for many years and I am generally pleased with the Constant Contact. However, the fact that you do not offer a translation service has become a deal breaker. This should be a critical feature of all e-communications. 

 

Because translation services are not offered for our families, we are going to cancel our service at the end of the school year and move to one of the many companies that do offer this feature.

The ability for our e-newsletter readers to quickly and easily translate the content into the language they prefer would be a huge benefit.  Please add a translate feature. Thank you!

My district has been a CC user for several years, but we are looking to switch to another vendor because the ability to translate has become a deal-breaker for us.  We are happy with CC otherwise.... would prefer to stick with the same platform if you were able to add the translation feature!  Please!  Soon!

A translation button would be a tremendous help, especially for our quarterly school district newsletters. We are required to translate our communications to parents regarding voting, website information and a host of other things.  This is also important as it applies to diversity and equity issues in making sure that no one is excluded. This seems like a no-brainer to me! Thank you.

We are a public school district with 4,000 employees and with over 40 languages spoken in homes within our district. A translation option within Constant Contact would greatly help us to do what Constant Contact is all about...to connect and communicate with people. We will consider changing to another vendor if it means being able to communicate with more of our families.

Just learning that other providers offer newsletter translation! I may have to shop around as this would save us significant time and resources. We are a District of 17,000 students and have been with Constant Contact for more than a decade. If it's possible - would love to see you offer this service!

We love using Constant Contact, however our goal is to be more inclusive. Our overall contact list has 26 languages and even more dialects.   We need to be able to translate our newsletters quickly to share. Our website has the capability to translate into over 100 languages with the click of a button, but only the words typed on the website—not screenshots or the Constant Contact information.

Would love to have a translate button. We have used Constant Contact for a year and love it. Our major languages are Kurdish, Somali, Arabic and Spanish.

I am hoping Constant Contact would consider adding a translation button for our school district's newsletters. We have many families that speak languages other than English, but don't have the staff to be able to translate. A translation button would allow more families to participate in their student's learning. Thank you for considering!

This is an absolutely critical feature for Constant Contact's education clients and should not be overlooked by the developer team.

I have been using CC since 2007 and am also considering leaving due to this issue not being addressed. Please provide a translation button that can translate multiple languages.

A prominent Translation button within each email that recipients receive would be helpful. Recipients need to be aware of the feature and it needs to be easy to use. Translation into multiple languages is necessary. There are over 50 languages spoken within the homes of our small district with 4,000 enrolled students. Thank you!

I would love a Spanish translation feature as well if this is still being considered.

We are looking for translation capabilities as well.

We are a multicultural school that needs a translate button for our communications. 

Trying to embed the archived issues of our e-newsletter also opens it in a new tab (taking the user out of our website) so the translation button on our website is useless!

A translation option for our emails and newsletters is a definite need in our business.  We are located in Texas where a good majority of people are Spanish speakers.

This is becoming a bigger issue for us as time goes on. We are a school district that needs to be able to provide communications in multiple languages, and the simpler this is for families, the better. This could be either establishing a preferred language in the individual profile, or a translate option in the email itself.

I have been a Constant Contact user for over 15 years and I have never considered leaving their service. However, my school district is pushing me to move to S'more because they offer a translation service. So many of of our users speak a different language and this language barrier is getting in the way of our otherwise great communication through Constant Contact. I would love to see an easy drop-down translation button with language options, similar to what you would see through Google Translate on a web site. Please add this feature so that I do not have to leave Constant Contact.

Please consider adding a translation option for the newsletter.  It would be beneficial for readers to have a translation button to convert the newsletter into the preferred language.  Our community has a diverse population of several ethnicities and a translation option would be a great feature that connects everyone to our newsletter.

Please stop sending emails to 'julieb319'. They are coming to me and I have nothing to do with this and it is not even my email.
