For Android users, translations in Gmail will start to roll out today, August 8. For iOS users, it will be available in a few weeks. The feature will be available for all Google Workspace users who have personal Google accounts.

How to use the Gmail translate feature on your smartphone:

  • To translate a message, click the “Translate” option at the top of your email.
  • If you dismiss the translation option, the option will appear again the next time the content language of an email doesn't match the set “ Mail display language”.
  • You can also turn off this setting, which never shows the banner again for a specific language, by accepting the prompt (“Don’t translate [language] again”) that appears when you dismiss the banner, or by selecting "Don't translate [language] again" from the translation settings menu.
  • If a user has explicitly opt-ed out of translation (as stated above) or the system did not detect another language, you can manually translate a message through the three dot menu.
