Although not as much as the Outlook mobile apps, Outlook.com get receives a significant number of updates with useful new features.

After bringing support for desktop notifications, Microsoft has introduced a built-in translator in the Outlook web. Needless to say, under the hood, Microsoft Bing will do all the hard work.

The in-built translator works exactly like the Bing translator, it can automatically detect any language and then can translate to the language you ask it to translate. The built-in translator appears in the upper part of the email message. You will also be able to tell the Bing translator not to translate by choosing the option ‘Never translate from:’

If you have a Microsoft ID, you can test the new default translator right now. Just make sure that you have at least one email message, which contains text different from your native language.
