Just getting started on Android? Let’s take a look at the best free Android apps to help you get started on your awesome journey!
Google is pushing a small update to its Translate app, bringing an improved offline languages experience, support for phonetic input in more languages, and bug fixes.
Google has now confirmed its purchase of Quest Visual, the company behind the Word Lens visual translator app. As a result of the purchase, all language packs are currently free.
Google Translate is rolling out a new update that brings several bug fixes alongside handwriting support for 13 additional languages.
On the same day as the opening ceremonies for the Sochi 2014 Olympics, Quest Visual, Inc. added a new language to their Word Lens Translator – you guessed it, Russian. Word Lens is a real time visual text translation service, categorized as an augmented reality application. Simply point your device’s camera at the desired text and it will be instantly translated right on your screen.
Two important Google apps are in the process of receiving updates, with rollouts going out now to Google Drive and Google Translate. See what’s new here.
According to Hugo Barra, who would probably know about things like this, Google is working on real-time translation technology. Much like their current Google Translate technology, which lets two parties talk into a device and have the message display in their native dialect, this centers around conversational situations. The difference is this new process involves conversations over the phone, not personal interaction.
Do you travel a lot? Well, a new feature added to the Google Translate app may prove to be helpful. Google has pushed out an update adding offline language support for 50 languages along with vertical text translation.
Google Translate now seems to be functioning in the web version of the Google Play Store. It was originally integrated in the app back in November.
We can be very grateful today for a slew of upgrades being rolled out straight from the busy offices in Mountain View. Among the tuned-up apps, we have some greats – including Translate or Voice – but also some “minions”, like Catalogs or Apps Device Policy.
