How does this automation work?

Bardeen's playbook offers a simple solution for translating the contents of an email into a different language directly from your inbox. With the multitude of languages encountered in global business communication, this tool can be a significant time-saver. It allows you to quickly understand and respond to emails from international clients or team members without leaving your email client or using a separate translation service.

Here's how you can translate email text using this workflow:

  • Step 1: Identify Open Email - Bardeen uses Gmail's capability to track email threads to find the currently opened email and select the body text.
  • Step 2: Translate Email Body - The selected text is then sent to DeepL, a powerful translation service, where it's translated into your target language. Specify the language you need, and Bardeen will display the translated text on your screen.
