ENHANCED: Google Updates Google Translate for Android - Adds further Features and Simplicity
Posted by Arne Hess - at 14:04 CET under 04 - Android News

Back, when I worked on a project in Angola, in a country which language I don't spoke, Google Translate for Android became a real life saver for me since it - somehow - allowed me to talk to my Portuguese only speaking colleagues. Now, Google announced to make Google Translate even better by launching the new Google Translate app for Android. The app is now featuring faster and simpler speech translations, additional language support and a sleek new look. Google Translate for Android works as before, all it needs is to open the Translate app and press the microphone icon. Google has also added gesture support now, so with a simple turn of the screen, it's possible to switch back and forth between languages.
