Google has launched a number of popular web apps and services that cover every aspect of people’s daily lives and work, such as Gmail email, photo album cloud disk, map navigation, calendar, newsletters and other products that are familiar to everyone. Recently, the company has also added support to Google Translate users in five languages. Clearly, while Apple has done a great job of integrating hardware and software across devices, Google’s ecology has an unparalleled advantage in terms of service coverage.
In the real world, people from different countries inevitably encounter communication problems caused by language. And the free Google translation tool that countless people prefer, not only the web version, but also the Android/iOS client.
With a single tap, the two parties can communicate as accurately and efficiently as they would with a walkie-talkie. In addition, even if you’re not a heavy user of Google Translate, the company continues to add support to the service in more languages.
Over the years, Google has supported real-time transcription and translation of oral conversations between any two of the more than 100 different languages.
The app also supports turning on the camera to scan printed text on identification paper or signboards, and friends who travel frequently must be happy.
This week, Google updated its translation service again, adding support to five languages. Isaac Caswell, the company’s software engineer, wrote in a blog post:
Whether it’s oral conversations, navigation menus, or online reading web pages, tens of millions of people around the world are using Google Translate.
The traditional principle of this service is to extract and learn from what is known on the web. But for those languages that lack network content, there are always big challenges.
But thanks to advances in machine learning and the active involvement of the community, Google Translate has finally added support for five languages in recent days.
This includes Kinyarwanda, Odia / Oriya, Tatar, Turkmen, and Uyghur.
More than 75 million people worldwide use these languages, and google translates the most-used languages in the last four years, with a total of 108 languages now available.
As with the previous 103 languages, the new five languages support download and save, making them available in offline mode in the Google Translate app.
