Default Switching from a language to another...

I have a project file with task names in Italian language.
The task names in this project file donít never change.
I'd like have in the same file also the English version of the task names, in order to display content with both languages, and make the switching from English to Italian with a button.
I think this is possible with a macro, but I'm not able to do this.
Do you have any suggestions or examples?

You cant do this in Project. Its the same as asking for Excel to convert language- when you enter a task name, it is a name, the language doesnt matter.

You might be able to export the task name column then translate somewhere else (google may do it, but I doubt it)but doing it in project directly isnt possible.

As Guloluseus notes, there is not a translation feature in Project. You can install different language packs but those don't translate task names, just product features.
