Gmail Goes Global: New Translation Feature for Seamless Communication

Google has announced a native translation integration within the Gmail mobile app.


"Starting today, we’re excited to announce a native translation integration within the Gmail mobile app that will enable you to seamlessly communicate in a wide range of languages, " the tech giant said in a Workspace Updates blog post on Tuesday.

This "highly requested feature" will help users read and understand a conversation in any language. To translate messages on mobile, users just have to select “Translate” on the dismissible banner and choose their preferred language.

Users can also choose to have Gmail always translate or never translate specific languages. Also, the role has no administrative control.

Last month, the tech giant launched a new feature in Gmail that allows users to trade time directly in the email service. This feature will be helpful for users when they schedule time with clients, partners, or people in your organization whose Google calendars are not visible to them.

According to Google, this feature helps users find exactly what they are looking for with less effort. The tech giant has also launched the "Help Me Type" tool for Gmail users who have signed up for the Workspace Labs program on Android and iOS.

Users can choose their output language in settings, so a prompt appears when the contents of an email don’t match the “Gmail display language.”

They can also opt out of translation if they don’t want the banner to pop up for a certain language, which could be helpful for people who speak multiple languages.

The translation integration will gradually roll out to Android users in the next two weeks. It’ll launch on iOS devices starting on August 21.

Additionally, users have the prerogative to decline translation for specific languages, a feature designed to accommodate individuals fluent in multiple languages and those with nuanced preferences for language interaction.

This much-anticipated advancement solidifies Google's commitment to breaking down language barriers and fostering seamless, efficient communication in an increasingly interconnected world.
