Google has started rolling out the Automatic Translation feature in the Gmail Labs.

Once enabled, in theory, when you receive an email written in a language different to yours your gmail should translate it for you with only one click.


I rally don’t know why something like this hasn’t cropped up in a standard email application before now. The Internet is global after all and I’m sure that we don’t (or shouldn’t) just communicate in our own small part of it.

So, go ahead and enable the feature and find yourself a pen-pal somewhere else in the World (and hope that they either understand English or are using Gmail too).
