Gmail’s automated translation service is now live and ready to translate emails from one language to another. This service was introduced 3 years back in May 2009 in Gmail Labs. But it was running as experiment product. So if you receive an email in Japanese, you can translate it to english with one click.
This service is very important for business users who have to work with people of different countries. They need a transtlation service to understand emails of different languages.
“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,” Gmail announced in a blog post.
The service is live now and will be rolled out to all Gmail users over the next few days. After that you will be able to translate emails written in different languages just by clicking on “Translate message” button on the header of the email. And it will translate it instantly for you.
This service also allow users to off the service for some languages you know. Suppose you do not want Gmail to translate spanish emails, you can turn off this service for spanish language.
