Google Translate Updated to Include Offline Features
We have had a very good stroll of updates from Google during the last few days, starting with GMail that got its new version 4.2, the new Google Keep notes service and now Google Translate. With little time left between now and Google I/O we can expect further updates to come.
The translate app for Android that Google offers is one of the best there is at what it does. It can work with both text and images and its translations are for the best part very accurate. The most appreciated feature however is its ability to translate based on voice input.
Let’s say you are in a foreign country and you are inquiring about a certain place. If your knowledge of the specific language is limited, Google Translate can be your number one most useful app. Now with the latest update it is able to work with offline input, for the moment when no internet connections are available. The new version also offers camera text translations in Chinese, Japanese and Korean. And it is available for free on the Store.
