BAM! Gmail Labs now offers the capability to translate emails on the fly, without leaving your email.
Check out the screenshot below to see what I’m talking about.
If I had been reading up the official blogs earlier in the day, I would have, oh wait, no, it wasn’t posted until late tonight. HA! So, that said, you can translate emails on the fly now with the new Gmail Labs feature.
Go to Settings -> Labs -> search for Message Translation, enable it, it will reload Gmail, then BAM! You now have automatic email translation.
I tested it and it was pretty spot on. Not perfect, nor is any automatic translation service, but it got the gist of the message to me and was almost word for word what I dad translated to me earlier.
Rock on Gmail team! Keep up the great work!
