Google Translate Update May Save You A Lot Of Money
Translate app has been updated to transform your mobile device into a powerful translation tool. And all this is made possible by Word Lens integration and improvements to the translation engine
According to Google the feature can be used by :
Simply tap the mic to start speaking in a selected language, then tap the mic again, and the Google Translate app will automatically recognize which of the two languages are being spoken, letting you have a more fluid conversation. For the rest of the conversation, you won’t need to tap the mic again—it’ll be ready as you need it.
Your smartphone is about to become your best friend when traveling abroad, even if you don’t want to shell out big bucks for an international data plan. An update to the Google Translate app, announced Wednesday, will add the ability to translate printed text by aiming your phone’s camera at it — even if you don’t have an Internet or data connection.
The feature will be available on both the Android and iOS versions of the app. It will allow users to translate French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish to English, and vice versa.
