On January 14th another step towards dissolving the inter-language communications barrier was made by Google.
It was announced an update of Google Translate service for Android and IOS (Apple) for mobile devices that will improve the simultaneous translations of texts through camera and voice communications in a foreign language through the microphone.
“The Translate app already lets you use camera mode to snap a photo of text and get a translation for it in 36 languages. Now, we’re taking it to the next level and letting you instantly translate text using your camera—so it’s way easier to navigate street signs in the Italian countryside or decide what to order off a Barcelona menu. While using the Translate app, just point your camera at a sign or text and you’ll see the translated text overlaid on your screen—even if you don’t have an Internet or data connection.
This instant translation currently works for translation from English to and from French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish, and we’re working to expand to more languages.” they say on the Official Google Blog where you can follow up the full story.
In Love and Light,
