Google offers a range of smart services that, when combined, provide useful possibilities. You can now translate emails in Gmail to your preferred language. In this short tip, we will guide you through the steps necessary to do so.
Translate with Gmail in Just a Few Simple Steps
Gmail’s translation feature is now available to a wider audience, allowing you to easily translate emails into Dutch or any other language of your choice. When you open an email in another language, you will often see the option to translate it immediately. We have tested this feature with multiple devices in our editorial office. It’s worth noting that not every email in another language can be directly translated, although the exact reason for this is unknown.
If you’re interested in translating emails, grab your smartphone or tablet and open the Gmail app. Then follow the steps below:
- Open the email you want to translate.
- Tap ‘Translate to Dutch’ in the appearing bar.
It may also display a different language, but you can change it.
- Check the translation of the email in the selected language.
Next to the bar asking whether you want to translate the email, you will also find a cogwheel. Clicking on it will take you to the settings menu of Google’s translation feature. There, you can customize which languages you want to use for the app and choose whether or not to automatically translate Dutch.
If you receive a lot of emails in a certain language but still want to read them in Dutch, for example, these settings can make it much easier for you. The new translation option is currently being rolled out to everyone in phases, so it may take some time before you see the option as well.
