Google Translate’s Update Forecasts Language Learning Machines

GettyImages_460209995Google Translate, an app that is estimated to perform about one billion translations a day, has officially added two new translation technologies. The Word Lens software, which Google acquired from Quest Visual in May of 2014, has been integrated with Google Translate to perform instantaneous visual translations, and the previously existing real-time conversation mode has been updated to provide faster and more fluid interlingual interactions, all without being connected to an Internet or data source. The Word Lens feature is currently available from English to and from Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, French, German, and Russian, with additional languages to be added on a rolling basis.
