Instant camera translation in Google Translate is getting a lot better

Google Translate instant camera translations get a massive boost

And most of the languages can be downloaded onto your device, so that you can use the feature without an internet connection. At times like this, Google Translate app's instant camera translate feature becomes really handy.

Google's Translate app is getting a major update with support for new languages and a massive update to the camera feature within the app. The highlights of the revamp are the addition of many new language pairs and the ability to detect languages during live translation.

Anyone who has traveled overseas to a country where they don't speak the language is probably already familiar with the Google Translate app.

An even more exciting development is the expansion of the target languages field to include "into any of the 100+ languages supported on Google Translate", according to the blog post. You can find the full list of supported languages here. With the new update, you can point the camera to a sign, and the Translate app will automatically detect the language.

After finishing 2nd on the points table, Australia now take on the hosts England in the 2nd Semifinal at Edgbaston. New Zealand's bowling attack is also risky - just ask Virat Kohli and the rest of India's top order.

The update has started rolling out now to the App Store and Google Play Store, so be on the lookout for it. Google says translation errors have come down by up to 85 percent, all thanks to Neural Machine Translation (NMT).

Instant Translate modes have been promoted to the app's main interface, so on launch you can now easily select between Instant, Scan or Import. In simple words, you can now translate Bengali int Hindi instead of English or Japanese into French and so on.

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. "We've reduced that flickering, making the text more stable and easier to understand", the company noted.
