You Can Now Translate Your Email on Gmail Mobile App. Here’s How It Works

Google is now officially offering a translation option for Gmail mobile users. If you have been using a web-based translation tool on your phone to convert Gmail messages, you will soon be able to do so within the app.

Before now, if users wanted to translate an email, they had to either copy and paste the content into Google Translate or take a screenshot and upload it to Google Lens.

The feature was rolled out on Android on Tuesday, August 8, with iOS following on August 21, for all personal and Google Workspace accounts. The web version of Gmail has been translated into more than 100 languages, and the tech giant says the mobile app will contain numerous languages but does not specify how many.

You will also have the option to "always translate or never translate specific languages."

Here's how the built-in feature on mobile devices works.
When you open an email sent in a foreign language, an auto-generated Translate banner appears at the top of the Gmail message. Select X to reject the offer or click it to have your email translated.

Google warns that if you deny the translation, the banner will reappear if you receive more emails in a language other than your default Google display language. The language of your display can be found in the options menu under "Language & Region."

You can also manually translate an email using the three-dot menu and select your favourite language in Settings. There are two methods for turning off Google's translation service. When the rejection banner appears, either click the prompt that says "Don't translate again," or visit to Gmail's translation settings section and select "Don't translate again."
