How does translation work?

 

                

Teachers and families can now translate Seesaw content into over 55 languages!  

If a note, caption, comment, announcement or message is written in a language that is different from the language of a family's or teacher’s device, a “See Translation” option appears below the post. Tap “See Translation” and Seesaw automatically translates any text into your native language. Students do not have access to this feature.

                                       

  •  Translation works for notes, captions, comments, announcements and messages. 
  • Available on all platforms (iOS, Android, Kindle, Web)
  • "See Translation" only appears if the note/caption/comment/message is written in a language that is different from the language of the viewer's device or computer. 
  • "See Translation" only appears for teachers and families, not students.       

Additionally, our family invite letter is now available in 10 different language on the web through the "Invite Families" button!
