Google’s translation tool, which makes translating entire web sites extremely easy, is
making its way to Gmail labs this month
. Finally, you can find out exactly what those Japanese “happy pill” emails in your junk folder say!
The translation tool reportedly works in just a few seconds, and will translate both the subject and the body of the email while keeping the original intact. You can swap between both versions of your message by clicking a link.
Translated items won’t stay translated though; you’ll have to re-translate a message every time you wish to read it. And, the translated words don’t get cycled into Gmail’s search engine, so if you’re trying to track down a foreign email, make sure you remember how to type the characters type a required key word.
