Google Translate gained the ability to translate words through the use of an image via your smartphone’s camera years ago, not long after Google acquired World Lens. However, World Lens’ technology is getting a new update today in Google Translate, vastly improving how those instant camera translations work.
In this update, Google has primarily focused on accuracy. They have implemented a neural machine translation technology, reducing your overall translation errors anywhere between 55 and 85 percent, but only when you’re connected to the Internet. We’re not sure how much offline translations have been improved.
Google Translate has gotten some other improvements, such as automatic language detection, and now support for over sixty total languages.
