Gmail team has announced a new auto translation feature to Gmail. It will be available for Gmail users globally in coming days. The new auto translation feature in Gmail is useful in many ways. The first advantage of the auto message translation in Gmail is that it allows you to read any message you received in Gmail in your native language. Also if you subscribe to RSS feeds (email news letters) of different web sites, no matter in which language they are, that content also you can read in your mother-tongue on Gmail. If you are bilingual, for example, if you can follow English and Hindi, if you subscribed to a Chinese website’s feeds you can automatically convert it to English or Hindi. I will explain you how to do it.
First check your default language settings in Gmail. Do you know how to change default language settings? To do this just head to the settings page in Gmail. Click the “Gear” icon for this purpose. And on the Settings page, under “General”, click on the “Language” drop down menu. There set your language to Hindi or your native language. Next time when you receive a message other than Hindi or the language you have set, Gmail will automatically translate it to Hindi (or the set language).
This is an existing Gmail Lab feature. Based on the feedback Google considered that it’s matured enough to introduce to the public. So you will get the feature as default in coming days.
When Gmail detects one of your message in a language other than your default language it will display you a control box at the top of the message. You can control the Gmail auto translation settings from the box.
