Google Translate updated with more languages for instant image translations


Google Translate is by far the best translator I’ve ever used. The Russian language is difficult to master for translators, and I’m not saying that Google Translate does it well, but it does Russian better than anything else by far. It also includes the awesome feature of instant translation using the camera.

With the latest update, 20 languages were added to the live photo translation feature. They are Bulgarian, Catalan, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Filipino, Finnish, Hungarian, Indonesian, Lithuanian, Norwegian, Polish, Romanian, Slovak, Swedish, Turkish and Ukrainian. That brings the number of languages from 7 to 25, with Hindi and Thai only supporting one way translations on top of that.

Additionally, voice translations are now faster and smoother, even on slow networks. This should really help those traveling abroad. This update should be available to both Android and iOS users over the next few days so keep an eye out!
