Looking to translate a sentence or a word? Chances are you might pop on over to Google Translate for your translation needs. However as most of you would agree, Google Translate isn’t exactly the most accurate, as is the case with most translation services. Sometimes the translation is spot on for simple words and sentences, but try getting a bit more complex and suddenly you are getting sentences that make no sense.
Well according to a report from The New York Times, it seems that Google plans on doing something about it. The report claims that Google is close to releasing an updated version of its Google Translate app for Android. One of the changes Google will be making to the app is the introduction of a system that will enhance the speech-to-text translation feature.
The updated app will apparently aim to deliver delay-free and “near perfect” translations, a feature which Google has been promising since a couple of years ago. This sounds a bit like the Skype translation feature that Microsoft launched where users could hold video calls in different languages and have their speech translated on the fly to the other person’s language.
No word on when the updated Google Translate app will be launched and when that updated version will be released for Android, but we will be keeping our eyes peeled for its release. In the meantime are you guys looking forward to this feature?
