bing translation services integrated in a modern site
As there is no variations feature anymore and obviuosly Microsoft isn´t investing in this feature for communications sites it would be pretty helpful to have bing translator integrated to a News page or normal page inside communication sites. We as a large coopertaion have to meet legal requirements providing multiple languages for an Intranet. Its just ´so much effort and not really efficient to create for each language an own communication site and link in between. This is as well nor really ideal for Editors of articles who have to publish their News multiple times in various communication site with the same Content but just in another language.
We also have this issue that the translation services they offer do not fully translate the content because it is custom. This would cause us to have to create sites in each language, which is not an option. They need to improve the translation feature because it is limiting for a global company.

We also have legal obligations to provide intranet content in multiple languages. Its a shame - the new modern templates are great and Microsoft have obviously put a lot of thought into them... but the need for translation versions has been sadly overlooked. It would be awesome to see the MS Translate technology integrated into these templates!!
This is possible in a classic SharePoint site, but with the restriction on Script Editor Webparts in the modern site template, this seems to be difficult to solve. I am trying my best to work around this issue as i type!
The translation service in Yammer would be as well appropriate
