Gmail’s 2 latest features: Translation and Import from other accounts

Gmail has 2 cool new features. The first can be really useful for those of us who frequently get e-mail from all over the world – language translation. Just head into your Gmail Labs section, look for Message Translation and enable. Messages in foreign languages will now have a link to translate. I was surprised that some Chinese messages were translated into very readable text.

The 2nd feature is the ability to import e-mail from your other accounts (ex: Yahoo, Hotmail, etc.) If you’ve been a Gmail user for a long time, you won’t see this option just yet, as this is really intended to lure away other users to Gmail without losing their existing mail.
