Google Translate app can help you in 5 cool ways:
- Translation offline
- Speak into your phone
- Camera input
- Save favourite phrases
1) Offline Translation
Once enabled, you can instantly perform translations offline. While the smaller size of the offline models has more limitations than their online equivalents, on the latest update of the app, you can now carry the world’s languages right in your pocket anywhere you go.
2) Speak into your phone
Simply pull out Google Translate, change the setting to Conversation mode, and speak into your phone. The app will read the translation out loud. You’ll be chatting away with your interlocutor in no time.
When you don’t know how to say what you want translated, and you don't know how to type it, just to write it. Use the Handwriting Icon and draw in the black space.
APAC languages supported: Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Indonesian, Malay, Filipino, Vietnamese.
4) Camera input
When everything else fails, try the app's camera-input support for Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. Just tap the camera icon, snap a picture of the text, and brush your finger over the part you want translated. It also works for vertical text for Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.
5) Save favourite phrases
Save commonly used phrases into Favorites in your Translate app, simply click the star by the top of the translated text to save the translation in your Favorites for easy access next time.
