Gmail‘s automated message translation is no longer an experiment. Now Google’s popular email platform can automatically translate emails from one language to another. So, for example, you can get an email in Japanese and have it translated instantly into English, or communicate with a friend in French without ever knowing the language.
This was inevitable and I’m glad this has come out. Bridging the gap between countries is what makes globalization possible. I’ve definitely used services like google.translate to translate my messages so I can send them off to my friends in Japan, Belgium, or even China. This will make that process even easier for me since I always had to add an extra step when sending those messages. I really hope I live to see the day when the universal translator from the popular TV show Star Trek will be available for everyone and there will never be a language barrier to overcome.
