Google Translate for Android, the handy app which helps folks out in a fix when it comes to on-the-fly translation, has just received a major update today. The app now has support for 12 new languages in addition to the already present Spanish and English, for its conversation mode. In case you forgot – conversation mode allows two people who are conversing in different languages to talk to each other by using the phone as a translator for both parties. The feature which premiered in January now supports Brazilian Portuguese, Czech, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin Chinese, Polish, Russian and Turkish.
In addition to support for more languages, Google Translate lets users add unrecognized words to their own personal dictionary, and users can now zoom on translations to view the text in full screen mode. The Google Translate App can text translations of 63 languages. The updated version of the app is available from the Android Market now (free). Check it out and let us know what you think.
