Translate emails almost instantly

You may also have noticed the “Translator” button in the top navigation bar of your account. But have you tried it? A single click will open a window in the Translator, putting a world of translation options at your fingertips.

Imagine you are planning a vacation in Italy and you received a hotel confirmation in Italian – now you’d like to translate the email to English. The Translator is here to help! Just select the text you’d like to translate with your mouse, then press Ctrl + C on your keyboard to copy it. Now click the Translator button in the top navigation bar. The Translator will open in a separate window. Paste your text into the translation tool where you see “Enter text here”. Now select the language you’d like the text to appear in the right column, and your translation will appear in the blink of an eye.

Now suppose you’d like to send a reply to the email in Italian. Click the X in the corner to clear the previous translation. Select “Italian” in the right translation field. Now you can simply start typing your email reply where you see “Enter text here,” and a translation will appear simultaneously on the right side. Once you are done, copy your translation by clicking the icon in the lower corner, then click back to your email account and paste it into your email reply in the Compose E-mail window.
