Would be great to have the option of inserting a translation button into email so clients could translate English text into Spanish!

Is it possible to include a translation link on mobile constant contact? I had been doing it previously but the mobile template doesn't seem to support this.

Yes, please for newsletters where readers may prefer spanish, can there be a button to translate? Utilizing google translate or similar.

Please do this! Other providers have translate available.

This is needed. I work in global health and our audience includes many non-English speakers. Looks like other companies (MailChimp, Campaign Monitor) offer a way to embed Google Translate in emails.

Please add a method for embedding Google Translate functionality (button/link) in emails. My organization has a global audience with many non-English speakers. Other email marketing companies offer this feature. Thank you!

Hello,

 

I think it would be a great idea to get some type of translation ability to put a link into our emails or survreys so that parents can receive and English copy of a newsletter and then do a Google Translate so they could receive it in Spanish.  

 

Thank you for your time

Our county along with the other county Supervisor of Election offices have been court ordered to provide Spanish translation for voter materials, which includes our Newsletter. Currently there is no option for Spanish translation, and because of how many clients also have the same request which has now become a requirement of us, I would highly consider embedding Google translate. Also, if MailChimp isn't using it, this could be a competitive advantage....Please seriously consider. Thank you.

A reader in Japan said she thought she used to be able to press a button to get our newsletter translated into Japanese but now can't find it. I can't see anywhere a person can ask for a translation. Is it possible? Thanks.

Hello @starleya66,

Thank you for reaching out to us with this idea! 

Would you be able to share more on what you would like to see? Where would you want to see something like this? Are you looking for google translate to just convert the content of your email into a different language?

All while a translate button linking to google is ok for somethings. Google translate is not that accurate when you need specific 100% accurate information to be translated. It may take a little more work on your part but just create separate campaigns with each language you want and then grab the url for each campaign and hyperlink them with a button that says click here for Spanish as an example. That way you can control the translation to make sure it is saying what you think it is.

Hello,

 

Please include the option to add Google Translate Service to the email as a button where you can select any language to translate.

At the Small Business Center we use Constant Contact to send our newsletters. We would like an option to translate the newsletter to Spanish. This could be in the form of a "view in Spanish" button .

Some of our clients are requesting emails in Spanish. Is there a way to do this?

Hi @GriffinW90 at this time there is not a translation tool available in our system. It is however a feature request we are continuing to track through this thread. The more requests we receive in this thread, the higher a priority it can be given.

I am also needing a translation button. This might cause me to end my 7 year relationship with your company due to the pressing need.
