Wordbee has developed an Instant Translation Tool, a free Add-in for Microsoft Office that let you translate emails, text and documents on the fly.
Built for Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Word, the Add-ins use a combination of machine translation and your very own translation memories to give you a "gist" translation – a first-run translation of the best possible quality to give you an immediate idea of what the content is about, in your own language. If you're unhappy with the gist translation, human post-editing can be requested, directly from the tool.
Login and password
You'll need a login to a Wordbee Translator platform, be it your own or that of your translation provider. Wordbee Translator is a cloud-based translation system. Please request the credentials from your provider or your Wordbee Translator administrator.

Thank you so much for releasing this feature. Our users love the Outlook add-in.
Can we use this feature on iPhone or Android?
If not, are you planning to make this available in the future?
Thanks for the info!
What about Open Office?
Interesting idea, right now, no we have no plans for adding this. Since the API to implement such apps is public, anyone can build this (it is not so complicate). Maybe someone can invest some time to develop such an app.
The API documentation can be found here:
To translate content you would use the MT Hive functionality described in those pages.
