Google Translate to support seven more Indian languages

Google Translate to support seven more Indian languages”

From today, the Google Translate app will let users in Marathi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Gujarati, Urdu and Bengali to experience offline translations and instant visual translation in the preferred language.

This update also allows Indian users to use Google Translate offline.

To make use of offline translations capabilities, you will need to download the specific language pack from the Translate app when connected to the internet. These features are already available for Hindi language on the Google Translate app. Later, you can use the language pack when you are on the go. A report by industry body Internet and Mobile Association of India past year found that the English language still accounts for 56 percent of the content on the worldwide Web, while Indian languages account for less than 0.1 percent. English is automatically enclosed in all language packs, so you can translate offline between English and the language you selected. This is available for all the seven languages mentioned above. The Translate app already lets the user use camera mode to snap a photo of English text and get a translation for it in different languages.

Instant visual translation, on the other hand, enables users to point their phone's camera at printed text or a physical signboard and view the translation in augmented reality. Now with Word Lens feature, Google has taken it to next level letting users instantly translate text using their camera-so it's way easier for speakers of local Indian languages to understand English street signs in the city or decide what to order from a restaurant menu.

Google said the number of its Translate app users has been doubling over the past six months. In case, you are using Word Lens in the language for the first time, then you will be asked to download a translation file at first as the Word Lens will work offline.

This launch comes almost five months after Google introduced neural machine translation for nine Indian languages-Hindi, Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Bengali, Marathi, Gujarati, Punjabi and Malayalam.

To avail this feature, users need to tap the mic to start speaking in a particular language, then tap the mic again.
