Google has updated its translation app and added 20 more languages to its service. Google Translate now works with a total of 27 different languages.

Users can now translate each way between any of the following 25 languages: English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Bulgarian, Catalan, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Filipino, Finnish, Hungarian, Indonesian, Lithuanian, Norwegian, Polish, Romanian, Slovak, Swedish, Turkish and Ukrainian. They can now also do one-way translations from English to Hindi and Thai.

It also now offers real time voice translation in 32 languages so that users can speak with people without knowing a word of their language.

Its kind of like the universal translators which they used in Star Trek.

No Internet connection or cell phone data are needed for the app to operate. Google boasts that the app uses new tech which allows it to work properly even in poorer areas with slower internet connections.

Julie Cattiau, product manager at Google Translate, told Techcrunch, “Our mission is to help overcome language barriers. Whenever someone faces an obstacle due to encountering a second language, we want to be there to help solve the problem. Within that mission, our most important project is improving the quality of machine translation. But part of that is also the overall user experience, which is why we also invest in things like instant camera translation and multi-language conversation.”
