The new Microsoft Edge includes a built-in Translate feature powered by the Microsoft Translator. It’s no longer necessary to install an extension to translate web pages in the browser.

The Translate icon appears in the address bar when you go to a web page that’s written in a foreign language. A language is considered foreign to you if it's not included in your Preferred languages list in Settings. To add or remove languages from the list, in Microsoft Edge, go to Settings and more > Settings > Languages.

You can also translate a web page by right-clicking the page, then selecting the Translate option. 

We're working on a feature that lets you translate text that you select, instead of the entire page. This feature will be available in the browser soon.
If you have any other feature requests or feedback, please share them by clicking on the feedback button in your toolbar. If the button is not appearing you can click on "Settings and more" (three dots on the top right corner) and then choosing "Help and Feedback" and then clicking on "Send Feedback". 
Risk impact

Microsoft Translator (Built-in) is safe to use. It does not request any sensitive permissions.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Microsoft Translator (Built-in) has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that an Edge add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Edge add-on reputation on Edge Add-on Store, the amount of time the Edge add-on has been around, and other signals about the Edge add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing an Edge add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

Does nothing. Directions for use says M.S. Edge has a built in translator. Look for the icon in the address bar. Built in didnt work, so i thought surely the Add on willdo it. NOT!! No icon appears in address bar, right click and no option for translation. Using fairly new 2 in 1 (Gateway) running windows 11. Dont know what else to do but uninstall the ****!
