Google Translate's instant camera translation also offers automatic language detection now.
If you regularly have to adjust the source language for your camera fed translations you might also be happy to know that Google has added an auto-detect input language toggle.
In brief: Google has updated its Translate app with more AI smarts, a less jumpy live camera translation, as well as a more intuitive UI.
Now there are three options on the screen, one-"Instant" that will translate the desired text as soon as you point the camera towards it. The feature works without Internet connectivity, making it a vital tool for someone traveling in a region where they don't speak the local language. As the name suggests, this feature uses a mobile device's camera to capture text and translate it in the app.
An even more exciting development is the expansion of the target languages field to include "into any of the 100+ languages supported on Google Translate", according to the blog post. You can check out a full list of which languages support which feature here. These make the visual interface seamless and better.
Google has just announced a handful of improvements for the real-time camera-based translation in the Google Translate app. Google's also introducing the ability to detect the language of text automatically, so if you aren't sure what language a text is in, you can simply point at it and Google will try to detect the language itself. Google says translation errors have come down by up to 85 percent, all thanks to Neural Machine Translation (NMT).
Finally, Google has improved the UI to not only reduce the image flicker you often get when using Instant Translate. Steady translated text overlays make the translations easy to read and understand quickly.
