Hands up if you rely on Google Translate, I do. With support for all our local languages in Malaysia – Malay, and various Chinese and Indian dialects, the very useful Google Translate tool has just gotten better. Google recently announced the support for another 5 new languages, bringing a total number of languages supported on the product to a whopping 70.
But that’s not all, Google also updated its Translate app for Android devices that brings Phrasebook into the app. Frequent travellers can now rejoice because Phrasebook allows you to save the most frequently used phrases, i.e. “Do you know where the bathroom is?” into the Android app, so you can use them wherever you go. All you need to do is log in with your Google account and save your favorite phrases into Phrasebook.
Finally, last but not least, the updated Google Translate app for Android can now translate by camera in 16 more languages. Using optical character recognition, Google Translate allows you to capture an image of a text and it can automatically translate them. The new languages added includes Bulgarian, Catalan, Danish, Estonian, Finnish, Croatian, Hungarian, Indonesian, Icelandic, Lithuanian, Latvian, Norwegian, Romanian, Slovak, Slovenian and Swedish.
