Pinsight University Automatic Translation

The Pinsight® team has been hard at work redesigning your Pinsight University lessons so that they can be translated into the language you’re most comfortable using using Google Chrome’s auto-translate feature. The instructions in this article will help you both convert the Pinsight University site language into your respective language and aid you in setting up the Google Chrome browser so that you can auto-translate lesson pages with the click of your mouse.
