1.1.58 Ensure 'Enable Translate' is set to 'Disabled'

Information

This policy setting enables Microsoft translation services on Microsoft Edge. Microsoft Edge offers translation functionality to the user by showing an integrated translate flyout when appropriate, and a translate option on the right-click context menu.

The recommended setting is Disabled.

Rationale:

Data should not be shared with 3rd party vendors in an enterprise managed environment. Enabling this service could potentially allow sensitive information to be sent to a 3rd party for translation.

Impact:

The translate feature will not be available for users.

Solution

To establish the recommended configuration via GP, set the following UI path to Disabled

Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Microsoft Edge\Enable Translate

Note: This Group Policy path may not exist by default. It is provided by the Group Policy template MSEdge.admx/adml that can be downloaded from Microsoft here.

Default Value:

Not Configured.
