As we mentioned last week, Google has now officially launched translation in GMail.
It comes in the form of a labs plugin and to enable it, simply visit Labs tab under Settings, and when you receive an email in any foreign language Google Translate supports (41 in all), Gmail will let you translate it into a language you can understand.
Awesomely, if your email conversation includes multiple Gmail users, each member can translate the email into their own preferred language without messing things around for other readers. Seriously cool and another big reason to use Gmail over other email providers.
Although it’s by no means perfect, its oh SO much better than nothing.
