Gmail Introduces Email Translation Feature for Phones

With the addition of a new function to the Gmail program, users will now be able to translate emails natively. Previously limited to the internet, the capacity is now being made available on Android and iOS mobile devices.

In an article on its blog, Google stated that “Our users have conveniently translated emails in Gmail on the web to over 100 languages for years”. We’re happy to announce that the Gmail mobile app now has a native translation capability, enabling you to easily converse in other languages.

When the capability recognizes the language of the email’s content, a standard offering to translate the email to the client’s preferred language is displayed at the top of the email. If an email is in Spanish and the user prefers English, they can click “Translate to English” to view the translated text, for instance.

Users who don’t want to translate an email can opt to ignore the banner or never translate emails from that language again. Users may also change their translation choices in the settings by selecting the languages they want to always translate or never translate.
