This post shows students and new users the steps to a secondary language when using the Microsoft Edge web browser. When you normally read and write in a particular language, you can add your preferred language to Edge and make it your default language or switch between multiple languages ​​when needed.

Adding a language in Edge is pretty straightforward and easy. However, not everyone is comfortable doing it. We show you how to do it below. When adding a secondary language, Edge will not ask you to translate when visiting a web page written in that language. It will be displayed in its native version.

This should work on all Edge browsers installed on any operating system, including Windows, MacOS, and Linux systems.

Edge, Chrome and other browsers automatically request to translate web pages written in a language other than the default language chosen in the browser. In some cases, this will not work. In that case, you can manually choose the secondary language preference for translating.

To start adding a secondary language in Edge, follow the steps below.
