After the recent update, Google Translate has become more exciting than ever. With the update the app gets the capability to translate the writing easily in any app, offline access for iOS, and support for Chinese in Word Lens.
Google Now Allows you Translate with One Tap
The big innovative feature is Tap to Translate. When enabled, each time you copy a series of text a small button will come on top of the present app, more similar to Facebook’s Messenger bubble. Tap on the bubble and there you are, the text you copied whether it be Hindi, Swahili or Romanian, is promptly translated in a popover window.
The fast window permits you hear exactly how the text sounds in the inherent language, but besides typing and translating text you can answer to your distant colleague or friend immediately.
The notion here is to get rid of that frustrating resistance that arises when you have to copy and paste text to and from Translate. The feature supports almost 103 Translate languages, but the great part about Tap to Translate is that it operates with any app, even if it is offline.
As revealed earlier the feature also brings offline mode to iOS users, a feature that has been already there on Android from some time. Visitors to China will be glad to hear that Word Lens, that switches text from images fast, has now extended support for basic and customary Chinese.
