Google has launched an update to Google translate for Android phones with an great experimental feature called Conversation Mode, which enable you to you translate speech back and forth between languages. First it started with English and Spanish, But now Google has finally launch another update with 14 more languages : Brazilian Portuguese, Czech, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin Chinese, Polish, Russian and Turkish.
If you like to use the Conversation mode, speak into your phone microphone, and the translate app will translate what you have said and read the translation out loud. The person you are speaking with can then reply in their language. and Conversation mode now translate what that person said and will show you so you can read it back that what he said.
This technology is still in alpha, so factors like background noise and regional accents may affect accuracy, but since it depands on examples to learn, the quality will improve as people use it more and more. This early version out is to help tart the conversation no matter where ever you live in the world.
There are few more other features which make it more easier and comfort to speak and read as you translate. For example, if you wanted to say "where i am going now?" but google translate recognizes your speech as "where i am running?" now you can re-correct the text and edit the spelling mistake from your screen.You can also add unrecognized words that you know in your personal dictionary.
When viewing written translation results, you can tap and the magnifying glass icon to view the translated text in full screen mode so you can easily show it to someone else nearby you and you can read it more quickly without any trouble, or just pinch to zoom in for a close-up view.
