Google’s product manager, James Kuczmarski revealed in a blog post that Google has worked very hard to bring improvements to its Apps. He said that Initially Google translate was only limited to English-Arabic. However, ‘Google translate’ can now translate 30 trillion sentences per year across 103 languages. In addition to all this, Google also introduced neural machine translation technology to Google Translate. Moreover, the new Google Translate NMT makes offline translations on your smartphones as effective as online translations.
