Google’s instant camera translation now works with over 100 languages - including Afrikaans

Google’s instant camera translation now works with over 100 languages - including Afrikaans”

This is built into instant camera translations, which produces more accurate and natural translations and reduces errors by between 55pc and 85pc in certain language pairs, according to Google. Furthermore, Google Translate Instant Camera feature can automatically detect the source language.

Google said that this feature is especially helpful when you're travelling overseas as it works even when you're not connected to Wi-Fi or using cellular data. For example, let's say you're on a road trip in Spain and aren't sure whether the sign you're looking at is in Catalan, Galician or Basque. Previously, users had to manually enter the source language being scanned.

One of the particularly useful functions of the Google Translate app I find is the instant camera translation.

If you've got a trip planed and you've never used Google Translate, we highly recommend installing it and downloading the local languages of where your visiting - it might help in a pinch.

There's also support for 60 new languages, including Hindi, Arabic, Thai, Vietnamese, Malay, Slovenian, Welsh, Samoan, Latvian and Estonian - to name a few from the full updated list of 88 languages.

With the above feature benefits described, you probably won't be surprised to learn that Google has sharpened up the technology behind this app.

Another nifty feature is the ability to translate between any of the 100 supported languages whereas before you could only translate back to English. The app can also now automatically detect languages for you, so you don't need to wonder if what to select if you're in a bilingual area, and the quality of the instant camera translations has been further improved via the magic of Neural Machine Translation. Steady translated text overlays make the translations easy to read and understand quickly.
