How does translation work?

Making Seesaw more accessible to the families in your community is very important to us.

If a note, caption, comment, announcement or message is written in a language that is different from the language of a parent or teacher’s device, a “See Translation” option appears below the post. Click “See Translation” and Seesaw automatically translates any text into your native language. 

 

  • 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 parents, not students.
