Bing Translation is a new action introduced in NINTEX Workflow for SharePoint 2013 that can be added from the NINTEX store. Using this action text can be translated to other languages. To explain this action I have created a custom list with the following columns.

3. Drag and drop a Bing translation action from the Integration section.


4. Click on the down arrow and then click on Configure.

5. Select the Text to translate (select the current item Title field), From language, To language and store the translated text in a workflow variable (create a new workflow variable and name it “translatedText”). Click on the Save button.


6. Drag and drop an Update list item action from the Libraries and Lists section.

7. Click on the down arrow and then click on Configure.

8. Set the workflow variable “translatedText” value to the current item “Translate Text” field.


9. Click on the Save button.

1. Click on the Publish button in the ribbon interface.

2. Make sure the Title is set; optionally you can set the values for Description. Select the Task List, History List and Start options.
