Google is bringing translate feature to Gmail which will let users translate mails automatically into their own language.
Google had integrated the translate feature in Google Labs in 2009, and after the successful reception of the feature it has decided to launch the facility in Gmail.
If you get a mail in a foreign language, you can click on the Translate message in the header at the top of the message and voila, the message will appear in your language. If you're bi-lingual and don't need translation for that language, you can turn off the translation by clicking on Turn off.
According to Google's official blog, "If you'd like to automatically have messages in a language translated into your language, click Always Translate. If you accidentally turned off the message translation features for a particular language, or don't see the Translate message header on a message, click on the down arrow next to Reply at the top-right of the message pane and select the Translate message option in the drop-down."
While Google is enhancing Gmail with two features from Google Labs: Title Tweaks and Smart Mute, it is also shutting less popular features like Old Snakey, Mail Goggles, Mouse Gestures, Hide Unread Counts, Move Icon Column, Inbox Preview, Custom Date Formats and SMS in Chat gadget.
