Mr. Yarmouth needs to contact a student’s parents to congratulate the student on improved progress. However, their first language is German and they are not fully fluent in English. What is the quickest action he could do to produce an effective email on his own?
- Post the message text on Google+ to see if someone can help translate it to German
- Use Gmail to send a message around the school to search for a student who can help translate the email to German
- Use Google Search to find someone local offering German translation services to help with the email
- Search the Chrome Web Store for the Google Translate extension for Chrome. Use the extension to provide a German version of the text within the email
The new Google Translate Chrome Extension lets you highlight just the text you want to translate. Just select the text and either click the Translate icon or right click on the selected text and select “Google Translate.” If you click on the translate button in the upper right hand corner of Chrome the extension will translate the entire page.
