This is fine, but no one will do it. As a trained translator, I
know what an effort it is to translate even a small document; imagine what
it would be for someone who isn't a trained translator. It is simply not
worth people's time to translate every email message, and those of us who
could understand other languages are going to continue to miss out on
these people's contributions.
Of course, you're welcome to prove me wrong...
