Tip: Easily translate your Outlook emails on iOS and Android using the Microsoft Translator Add-ins

We often think of mobile apps as neutered versions of the desktop application, but in recent years they have become increasingly powerful and versatile, with the official Outlook app on iOS and Android being good examples of this.

They both have hidden power-user features which can make your life easier, and one of these is the ability to easily translate emails using the Microsoft Translator Add-in for Outlook.

To activate the extension go to Settings in the app > scroll to Add-ins > select Translator from the list > return to your email and press the add-in button > select Translator > read your newly translated email in whatever language you choose.

A number of other add-ins are also available, including Trello, Glyfcat and Evernote, but I feel translating an email on your phone is likely the main issue which has most people stumped at some point.

The Outlook app for iOS and Android are a good replacement for the default app on both operating systems. Outlook for iOS can be found here and Outlook for Android here.
