Getting the right message across is always crucial – I believe that wars have started due to miscommunication in the past, so with tools like Google Translate at our disposal these days, it makes perfect sense to maximize their use. Case in point, Google Translate used to receive input through the typewritten word, but things are slightly different now with a small little update that brings about an unprecedented functionality – that is, Google Translate is now able to recognize written words in seven different languages. As for the previous version, it just enabled the user to make use of text and spoken input, so to have handwriting recognition thrown into the mix is truly something else altogether. I guess folks who communicate in Chinese and Japanese will have a far easier time getting their ideograms across compared to using the keyboard, no? Other languages with handwriting recognition comprise of English, French, Italian, German, and Spanish.
