Gmail Tweet Translation Services

OK, I’m sure that Google and Twitter aren’t too happy with the title of this post, but so what, it’s true. I figured out how to translate my Tweets, using my Gmail account and a little digging in the help files. If you get Tweets in other languages, you can auto translate them by sending them to your Gmail account, and then accessing them via your mobile phone through Gmail for Mobile. All you have to do is to go to the LABS tab in your Gmail account and scroll down to the Translation Application, and clicking save. Once it’s active, any time you get an email or Tweet in another language, you will be asked if you want to translate it to your default language. Once you translated it, there will be a tab at the top of your email asking you if you want to auto-translate from that language to your default language going forward.

See, I told you it was easy…
