Technology keeps bringing us closer to a world where people can communicate freely across language barriers.
Google on Tuesday announced that its e-mail service, Gmail, soon will include an "automatic translation" feature for all users.
"The next time you receive a message in a language other than your own, just click on Translate message in the header at the top of the message," the company writes in a blog post, "and it will be instantly translated into your language."
The update will roll out in the next few days.
The announcement comes on the heels of another language-related news blip from the Mountain View, California, company. Google said last week that its Google Translate service -- which changes text from one language to another -- handles as much translation work in a day as human translators could manage in a year.
"In a given day we translate roughly as much text as you'd find in 1 million books," the company said.
That is, of course, pretty incredible. But all of this translation talk is also generating discussion about the weaknesses of current computer-translation technology.
