Microsoft is set to introduce a new feature in its Outlook Web application that will allow users to translate emails natively. This upcoming feature has been added to the official Microsoft 365 roadmap.
Details on the Upcoming Translation Tool
The new native translation feature will enable users to seamlessly translate the content of their emails, eradicating the need to utilize third-party tools or manually copy and paste content into translation services. This addition aims to enhance user experience by streamlining the communication process for individuals and businesses with global connections.
Users will have the option to automatically translate emails coming from specific senders or choose manual translation for specific emails. This approach is designed to offer flexibility and customization based on individual user needs.
The Microsoft 365 roadmap, which serves as the official platform for Microsoft's feature announcements, was quoted as stating, “Outlook for the web is introducing an inbuilt translator for emails.” This confirms the company's commitment to incorporating multi-language support directly within their applications.
As the feature is now visible on the Microsoft 365 roadmap for Outlook, it is anticipated to be available to users in the near future. Microsoft has not put an official date on the roadmap, but it is in the pipeline likely in the coming weeks or months.
