The Google Translate service is the world’s best-known free tool for machine translation. It is made possible by Google’s huge trove of data, and the statistical techniques that match n-grams from one language with plausible n-grams on another.
If you need to talk with someone who speaks a foreign language, transcribe a conversation, or dictate in another language, it can come to your aid with two different apps available for iOS and Android devices.
For an outsider to the translation industry like me, this service seemed to represent a great leap forward in translation quality when it was first introduced. However, since then, its quality improvements seem more incremental, when they are visible to all.
Translate on Google
If you need to be able to translate words or phrases from one language to another, this can be a helpful tool. It’s not like an English-to-Some-Other-Language dictionary that contains the words of one language and their corresponding translations.
Rather, it takes the word or phrase that your type and then searches the Internet for the best translation from the billions of expertly translated documents out there. Nearly instantly, it provides you with that search result in the form of a translation.
Google Translate App
The app can translate dozens of languages, either through text or voice; just type, write, or speak into the app. It even allows you to point your smartphone at a sign or menu written in a foreign language to view a live translation.
