Google Chrome is translating English to English in Outlook.com. I am in the Czech Republic. Unfortunately the translation of my English to English is making my emails not make sense.

Google had a pop up that asked if I would like to translate the English in my Emails to English, but I did not click yes. I just closed the pop up.

Are you sure this is Google Chrome asking, not outlook.com? Could you attach a screenshot? – Vidar S. Ramdal Sep 24 '13 at 8:30
If it is Google Chrome asking, then this question is off topic here as it's about the browser and not the web application. – ChrisF Sep 25 '13 at 11:26

Go to google chrome settings page. Click "Show advanced settings" and untick "Offer to translate pages that aren't in a language that I read" box near the bottom.

This will turn of translation everywhere so if you use it elsewhere don't do this.

I have this issue, and this didn't solve it: Chrome continued to translate - not just offer, but actually translate - English to English on the page. – trr Mar 17 '15 at 0:00
