3-Translator for Word
Another one useful feature of Microsoft office 2019 is named as Translator for word. The translation feature on Word 2019 brings many text translation options, supports many different languages. Some media person or any other office working people’s daily work with different languages so it is mostly used for those kind of peoples.
You can use the below step for translate your word file.
1-To click on the Review section -> Select Translate then click the Translate Document.
2-Now select the translate to language in your desired. If you are using this feature in first time means, one screen appears asking if you want to turn Intelligent Services on. Click Turn On. That happens once. You won’t have to do it again.
Translator feature is available in PowerPoint and Excel 2019 for translating particular words or phrases, but you can’t use it to translate entire files in those apps.
Except translator feature in Microsoft office 2019 has few small other features like, black theme, speech-to-text capabilities and accessibility improvements. But consider the Microsoft standards, this changes are very less only.
It has little bit of features to data analysis, new functions, connectors, funnel charts and 2D maps
A funnel chart helps you visualize a linear process that has sequential connected stages.
For example, a sales funnel that tracks customers through stages: Lead –> Qualified Lead –> Prospect –> Contract –> Close. At a glance, the shape of the funnel conveys the health of the process you’re tracking.
5-Formulas for Excel
Microsoft office 2019 introduced some few new features in Excel. You can able to publish from Excel to PowerBI, and has enhancements to PowerPivot and PowerQuery.
The two function like, TEXTJOIN and CONCAT, which let your association text strings from ranges of cells with or without using a delimiter separating each item, such as a comma.
You just need to be mentioned the range and specify a delimiter only, and Excel does the rest.
IFS and SWITCH functions – it is also another two small function in excel and you can use this function for to mention the series of condition like “nested IF” functions.
6-Morph and Zoom for PowerPoint
Morph: The prominent feature of PowerPoint 2019 is Morph and Zoom. The Morph transition allows you to animate smooth movement from one slide to the next. It is available if you have a Microsoft 2019 subscription.
That resolves a long-term, nagging PowerPoint problem. It lets you show motion in transitions and inside slides without support in Animations tab.
Zoom: It is mainly support to zoom the presentation screen in very quickly.
Let’s take this scenario – if you are in review meeting, go to Insert –> Zoom, then pick the slides you need displayed in the “Zoom” slide. A new slide is created with thumbnails of those slides. When giving a slideshow, you can be to jump to any slide instantly by clicking its thumbnail.
So it is mostly helpful for review meeting or any other meeting for to show slideshow in PowerPoint 2019.
