Google adds Hindi to its repertoire

GoogleSearch giant Google said it has upgraded its Translate app and it now supports the Hindi language visual translation feature.

Visual translation lets you point your device at the text you want to translate and it will turn it into the language you want.

Google Translate now supports 27 more languages – up from seven. As well as Hindi it has added Catalan, Lithuanian, Romanian and others to the mix.

The company said you don’t need a network data connection to use the Translate app, based on work it’s done on neural networks.

Google said it’s still got some way to go because while over half of the content on the internet is in English, only 20 percent of the world’s population speak the lingo.
