In February 2017, we announced the launch of Translator for Outlook on Windows, iOS, and the web – an add-in that instantly translates emails directly in Outlook with one click. This same translation feature is now available on Android devices for users with an Outlook.com or Office 365 email address.
Android users can now translate multilingual emails in over 60 languages! Whether you receive an email confirmation from a hotel, a welcome email from an Airbnb host, or communication from an international client, the Translator for Outlook add-in helps break down language barriers in one tap.
Translate emails in-app by clicking the “Translate” icon once. No need to switch between apps to get translations!
Translate in 60+ languages. The original language is automatically detected, even with multiple languages in one message.
Preserve original formatting. See the translated message with its original content and formatting—including fonts, images, tables, and links.
