Google’s Update On Its Translate App

Google has updated this app so that it can still do translations even of the user is offline.  According to Google, it implemented Neural Machine Translation (NTM) in Google Translate in 2016.  This is to improve its accuracy in online translation.  This same technology is now being introduced by the company to its offline translations.

The offline mode will function in the Google app and will work for iOS and Android users.  The company said, “This means that the technology will run in the Google apps directly on your Android or iOS device, so that you can get high-quality translations even when you don’t have access to an internet connection.”

The Translation App

The new offline feature of this translation app works with the help of the neural machine translation.  But there is an issue to this new feature.  The translation files will take up a lot of space on your smartphone.

The company added, “The neural system translates whole sentences at a time, rather than piece by piece. It uses broader context to help determine the most relevant translation, which it then rearranges and adjusts to sound more like a real person speaking with proper grammar. This makes translated paragraphs and articles a lot smoother and easier to read.”

How To Use The App

Go to your Translate app on Android or iOS for NMT offline translations.  A banner will appear on your home screen which will take you to the right place to update your offline files.  Or you can go to your offline translation settings and tap the arrow next to the language name to download the package for that language.

Your device will now be ready for translation even when you are offline.  The update will be available in 59 languages, including Indian and European languages.
