Google Translate now provides better gender-specific translations in several languages

Saturday, December 8th, 2018

Translation is tricky, as you know if you've read any web page automatically converted by Google Translate; different tongues have different nuances that are hard to teach to an algorithm. Specifically, the way languages handle gender varies, and these discrepancies previously led to Google Translate to make assumptions and provide potentially inaccurate translations. Now, though, when gender is ambiguous in a translation input, the output will show both masculine and feminine terms, eliminating the guesswork.

Update Notes for the Google app, Gmail, Translate, Home, Play Books, and Fit (November 21, 2018)

Wednesday, November 21st, 2018

Every week, I examine somewhere in the neighborhood of a hundred app updates while looking for changes. The most interesting things turn into APK Teardowns or Download posts. Many of the remaining updates are unremarkable, amounting to a few bug fixes, routine updates to libraries, or even just pixel-level adjustments to layouts and images. However, there are usually a few updates that land somewhere in between. I don't want to spam readers with dozens of short posts, but I hate to ignore things that people might want to know about, so I'm going to wrap up the leftovers for a little weekend reading and call it Update Notes.

Google Translate's camera mode, which allows you to highlight text from pictures to read them in your native language, is still one of the best real-world implementations of machine learning. Earlier this year, a handful of new Indian languages were added to the camera mode, and now 13 more are supported.

The new additions include Arabic, Thai, Vietnamese, Hindi, Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Nepali, Punjabi, Tamil, and Telugu. As with the other languages, you just open the camera on Google Translate and drag your finger over the text you want to read.

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2018

Translate remains one of Google's true workhorse apps – it's not flashy or exciting, but many of us would be lost without it. The latest update is setting the stage to remove a longstanding feature, but suggests a pretty good alternative to take its place. Also buried in the strings is a line suggesting new support for regional translations, but it may or may not actually represent anything new.
