Google has released a feature for Google Docs to make multi-lingual sharing easier — you can now automatically translate documents into 42 different languages. Now, you can very easily share your document, which are in English, with your friends, colleagues, relatives etc who are not very much confident with English. Just translate the document using this new translate feature and share it.

So, how to do that. Well, its quite simple.

1) Upload the document (word or notepad). Here I have uploaded a document ‘Translation.txt’. You might already uploaded documents. In this ase just go to step 2.

Below is an example of translation of above document from English to German.
