Google has launched a translation service for its email service Gmail, which could assist global businesses in their electronic communication. Readers will be able to select 'translate message to' when receiving emails that arrive in a foreign language, after enabling the translation feature in their settings. "If your entire company uses Gmail, email communications between people in your company can take place in the language that's most comfortable for them," blogged Google Translate product manager Jeff Chin. "Each person can write messages in their native language, and the recipients can translate the messages into their respective native languages." While the translation is not perfect, readers should be able to get "a quick gist of a message" wrote Chin. More complex emails will probably have to wait for better translation technology.
