The translation feature is sometimes bad


As shown in the translation feature, the translation is not performed, which seems to occur in plain text emails. I have tested some HTML format emails, and they appear to be normal.

To Reproduce…

Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  1. Open a text mail
  2. Click on “Translate” button when it appeared.
  3. Nothing happend.

Expected Behavior

Something should happend.
Or, can MailSpring open the plugins for user to translate via OpenAI or other services?


This is a screenshot of Japanese → Chinese email translation.
