Gmail Has Automatic Language Translation Now


The official Gmail blog reports that Google’s email service now supports automatic message translation.

The news arrives after the search engine slowly upgraded each Gmail accounts from 7.5 GB to 10 GB of virtual space in celebration of Google Drive’s launch. But like the capacity increase, users may not see the new translation feature for a few days as Google slowly rolls out Gmail’s new feature to millions of users.

“Did you ever dream about a future where your communications device could transulate language with easy, yeah that day is a very closer. Back when we launched automatic message translation in Gmail Labs, we were curious to see how people would use it,” writes Jeff Chin, Product Manager, Google Translate.

We heard immediately from Google Apps for Business users that this was a killer feature for working with local teams across the world. Some people just wanted to easily read newsletters from abroad. Another person wrote in telling us how he set up his mom’s Gmail to translate everything into her native language, thus saving countless explanatory phone calls (he thanked us profusely). I continue to use it to participate in discussions with the global Google offices I often visit.

Since message translation was one of the most popular labs, we decided it was time to graduate from Gmail Labs and move into the real world. Over the next few days, everyone who uses Gmail will be getting the convenience of translation added to their email. The next time you receive a message in a language other than your own, just click on Translate message in the header at the top of the message,

If you’re bi-lingual and don’t need translation for that language, just click on Turn off for: [language]. Or if you’d like to automatically have messages in that language translated into your language, click Always Translate. If you accidentally turned off the message translation feature for a particular language, or don’t see the Translate message header on a message, click on the down arrow next to Reply at the top-right of the message pane and select the Translate message option in the drop-down.

So Finally We got translation in Gmail. Good news
