How to translate functions by 01Patrik
Posted: 10 Sep 04

From English to my language


Sub Translate_function_from_English()

Selection.Formula = Selection.Formula

End Sub

Write the function in a cell as you would have written it in the English version (Ignore the error message). Select that cell and run the macro above. This automatically converts the non-working English function in the cell to a working local one, if there is a function within the cell. Otherwise, nothing happends.

Note that the sub works an a multiple selection (array) as well!

From my language to English


Sub Translate_function_to_English()

MsgBox Selection.Formula

End Sub

This only shows the translation in a messagebox, since you probably won't have much use of it if it would write over the original, working function...
