# Translator

The Microsoft Excel functions have been localized into many languages. If you send your Excel file to someone using a different language for Excel than you, the functions and formulas used in the workbook are automatically translated by Excel when opening the file. However, the automatic translation usually does not work, if you directly insert foreign language formulas into your worksheet. Such a situation may for example occur, if you are using Excel in German and want to use an English formula provided by a forum. The following online tool allows you to translate an Excel formula from one language into another language and therefore use the localized formula.

Hello,

thank you for the note. In Excel 2010 before Service Pack 1, the function SEARCH was translated as PESQUISAR. Since Excel 2010 SP1, the translation is LOCALIZAR.

Did you select in the online tool Excel 2010? If so, then I guess, you already have Service Pack 1 or a higher Excel version. Please then select at least Excel 2010 SP1.

Best,

Mourad
