Google added three new features and a new look & feel to Google Translate – which offers 51 languages for translation:
- Translate instantly: Google Translate now translates your text right as you type.
- Read and write any language: Want to say “Today is a good day” in Chinese, but can’t read Han characters? Click “Show romanization” to read text written phonetically in English. Right now, this works for all non-Roman languages except for Hebrew, Arabic and Persian. Also new input transliteration feature for Arabic, Persian or Hindi allow you to type words as they sound and convert them to native script.
- Text-to-speech: When translating into English, you can now also hear translations in spoken form by clicking Speaker Icon.
