In addition to Arabic and Hindi, the app supports Bengali and Punjabi-four of the 10 most spoken languages in the world, according to Ethnologue . Translate also added to support for Gujarati, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Nepali, Tamil, Telugu, Thai and Vietnamese.
Google Translate's "View" and "Snap" features let you point your camera to a character or menu and watch the app translate the text in real time, or take a quick photo, and allow the app to process translate text for you. Travelers can access the function via the Translate app by touching the camera icon.
Google has added significant support for new languages since the launch of visual translations back in 201
Real-time translations are made possible thanks to Neural Machine Translation (NMT), a machine learning technique that completes translations by predicting the likelihood of a word sequence. Google also uses the technique to run offline translations.
