Google Could Soon Have a “Live Translation” Service

/ 6 years ago


After acquiring Quest Visual, a real-time translation application developer who made Word Lens, Google could use them to good effect.

The company is rumoured to be working on a new “Live Translation” mode, which would give some serious super powers to its already impressive Translate app. The first Live Translate application will reportedly work both ways in a few languages at first: English and French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish, reports Android Police.


It gets better: there will reportedly be a very cool conversation mode, which will allow you to talk to someone in another language. Someone could be speaking Spanish to you for example, with the new Live Translate application translating the other person’s language, on the fly. Cool? YES. The updated Google Translate app would listen for both languages that are activated, and would automatically translate whatever version of the language isn’t your native one, into your native language.
Google hasn’t said when this will be available, but we should expect it to be found in the next iteration of Google Translate.
