Google’s live camera translator i.e Translate App is coming with better AI, Added 60 new languages
This could be great news for the active users of the Google Translate app, where the camera signals and feature menus would be wonderfully useful for translations. So far, this feature was limited to low-quality translations, to a lesser extent by an attractive interface and selected languages. But this step will help in solving such problems and limitations.
The key to this update is Google integration of AI translation methods, which is known as neural machine translation (NMT). Google lens and web version of the translation have also included these models. Now they are also supporting instant camera translation.
This latest update of the Translate App includes the new languages: Afrikaans, Arabic, Bengali, Estonian, Greek, Hindi, Igbo, Javanese, Kurdish, Latin, Latvian, Mongolian, Malay, Nepali, Pashto, Persian, Slovenian, Swahili, Samoan, Sesotho, Thai, Vietnamese, Welsh, Xhosa, Yoruba, and Zulu. You can see the list of all 88 languages supported by the Translate App here.
After the new update of this app, you can also see which language you are looking for as a live camera translator. Maybe the area where you are traveling where many languages are spoken or written. The update will make the camera feature more useful.
Google says that this update will be available to only 1 percent of users, and it will also have a full rollout in the coming weeks.
