Gmail Launches Message Translation Lab


I can't say I get a ton of email in other languages, but if you have friends in exotic places or you're trying to learn Mandarin and you need some help translating emails, Gmail has just added a Message Translation lab to their ever growing Gmail labs list.

Once the lab is enabled under settings, whenever you receive an email in another language than your own, Gmail will help to translate it. A header will show up at the top of the email that will say "Translate message to: ______" and you can pick whichever language you want.
