Translate Your Gmail Inbox Messages With a Click
This has got to be my favorite Gmail feature rolled out in the Labs: message translation. Enable it in the Labs settings, and next time you see a mail written in a language other than your own, you can hit the link reading e.g. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Translate message to: EnglishÃ¢â‚¬Â above, and the message will magically appear in English. (Well, it would be magic to someone from a decade or two ago, even though we start to get used to these things!) To change your default language for this tool, go to the general settings tab, and youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll find a selection box labeled Ã¢â‚¬Å“Default translation language.Ã¢â‚¬Â
