Microsoft is working on a new feature that will bring native email translation to Outlook Web really soon. The feature is already available for Outlook apps on Windows and Mac, and will soon make its way to web as well.

The Redmond giant recently updated the Microsoft 365 Roadmap page to include the Translator for Outlook Web entry.
In Outlook, you can translate words, phrases, and full messages when you need them. You can also set Outlook to automatically translate messages you receive in other languages. When you receive an email message in another language, you'll see a prompt at the top of the message asking if you'd like Outlook to translate it into your preferred language.

Microsoft will offer multiple ways in which users can translate an email on Outlook on the Web. These include using the native translator on the top or translating specific words or sentences by selecting text in the email.

Microsoft notes that it will add a prompt at the top asking users if they want the email to be translated. It will also offer options such as always translate an email and never translate an email to record user preferences for the future. Once translated, Outlook will cache the data for 15 days so the user doesn't have to translate the email again and can see the translated version on the go.
