Let Yammer translate those unreadable messages for you

Yammer has a built in translation service!

Although not a new feature, as it was rolled out back in 2013, it seems network administrators are not aware of it (

If you are part of a Yammer network where people post in multiple languages, poke your admin in the kidneys and tell him or her to do the following in Yammer:

  • … (upper right corner)
  • Network Admin
  • Configuration
  • Check “Message Translation”


With this turned on you can easily translate from for example Norwegian to English.


Wonder why it’s not automatic or user driven…..
