Google Translate Adds 20 More Languages
  • World Lens by Google translate can now translate videos in 27 languages.

The Google Translate app was updated and released today and added dozens of more languages to its already large service.

Today Google translate was updated and it made the app a while lot stronger than before. The update added dozens of more languages to the Google translate app. The update also smoothed out the app so it is more durable on slower connections.

As a result of the update android users can now translate 37 languages in photos, 32 languages by voice files and 27 languages through videos, according to Google Blog.

The update has made the visual translation features of the app considerably more powerful especially for real time videos. Previously in January the app was updated to include two new features.

One of the features was the real time video translation called the Word Lens and the other was a conversation feature which is capable of translating bilingual speech in real-time.

The World Lens is entirely workable off-line and let a user translate text through the mobile camera into any other language immediately. The feature had proved to be very convenient for travelers in remote areas where internet connection is not necessarily available.       

At the time of its launch World Lens only supported seven languages but after today 20 more languages have been added to its services. The app will be able to translate text back and forth in 25 languages such as Turkish, Czech and even Ukranian.  

The app can also translate text into Hindi and Thai language but cannot translate text from two languages due to many individual letters in the script. 

The new update will not automatically add the languages into the app but a 2 megabyte module will have to be downloaded manually by accessing the app store. The update will also make speech translation back and forth in two languages relatively easier, especially on a slow connection.
