Welcome to the Excel Translator website. Many of the Excel functions have been translated into several languages by Microsoft. Normally, when you share a workbook with someone who uses Microsoft Excel in a different language than you, the functions and formulas from your workbook are automatically translated by Excel.
However, if you directly insert a foreign-language Excel formula into your Excel sheet, Excel mostly can not recognize that. For example, let's assume, you are using Excel in German or French, where most of the Excel functions have been localized. If you try to copy and paste an English formula from a forum into your worksheet, then this will not work. Or, if you developed an awesome formula in German or French, which you would like to share in an English forum, many users there would have to translate it.
This website provides an online tool for translating Excel functions and formulas from one language to another. This website also includes an online reference of all translated functions, arguments and Excel error codes. This website is available in 18 languages. Each language version is accessible under its own subdomain and all language versions contain the same content. However, some of these language versions of the website have not yet been fully or only partially translated. I am looking for people who can help me to complete the translations. If you would like to support the project, please send a message to the e-mail address given in the imprint.
The Online-Tool for translating Excel functions and formulas
The Online-Tool translates both single Excel functions and Excel formulas from one language to another, taking into account the arguments for the functions CELL and INFO as well as error messages, such as #REF! or #N/A. The online tool allows you to select an Excel version from Excel 2010 up to the current version, select the source and target argument separators and specify, if the arguments of the CELL and INFO functions should be translated or not.
The online reference
The online reference contains a reference of all translated Excel functions for the Excel versions 2010, 2010 SP1, 2013 and 2016. Please note, that Excel version 2019 is not explicitly listed because Excel 2019 corresponds to Excel 2016 from September 2018. By the way, the search function of this website searches all available subdomains and therefore, you can also e.g. search for an English function name.
