Google this week posted a significant update to its powerful and easy to use Google Translate (Free) iOS app, to include handwriting input, seven new languages, and a modern redesign of the user interface.

Google Translate works similar to the Google Search app which allows users to use voice to text technology to get super quick translations between more than 70 languages. Bosnian, Cebuano, Hmong, Javanese, Khmer, Lao, and Marathi were added in the new update.

To use the app you simply select the two languages for translation and then type, dictate or write the text you want translated. Translations must be done over a Wi-Fi or cellular connection. After you input text, the app automatically makes the translation in written and audio formats.

The new update allows users to handwrite text they want translated, using either their finger or a stylus pen. Handwritten input can be read in 49 languages.


The app retains a history of all your inputted content, and you can star translations which will be copied to the favorites list, and can be read offline. Translations can also be read in full screen mode, which makes content easier to read. You can also select in Voice Settings which form of English (e.g., Australia, India, US, UK), Chinese (e.g., Cantonese, Mandarin) or Spanish (e.g., Argentina, Mexico, Spain) you want it use.

For simple and straightforward translations, Google Translate is very accurate, and fast. Let us know what you think of the new upgrades, and the app in general.

    I assume a tech support team thread would be a geniune discussion among WordPress members is that the technical support threads I've written in have been such discussions.

    To be able to address and try to solve technical issues, members discuss them. By discussion After all that (in cases where the answer is not immediately obvious and the questioner merely needs to be informed about any of it, which, as much as i can remember, is not the case with the problems I have brought up) members describe the issue, ask questions about it, analyse it, suggest solutions, report the outcomes of these measures, and evaluate each other's responses. Such discussions, always are meaningful and valuable, I have also had with WP's "happiness engineers". They're the way in which accurate answers are given and solutions found. They're what I find on a regular basis in the support forums.

    Are these blogs not for such purposes? Obviously, you mean by discussion something else, which is neither why nor what I am doing here.

    A geniune discussion among members (and happiness engineers) is thus in my experience the way technical issues are addressed and frequently indeed solved within an excellent way. It is not a discussion where, for a fresh instance, participants accuse others of seeking to promote their blogs (!). This allegation is truly remarkable.
    If you ask easily am some type of computer expert , as a matter of a fact I am, I have my very own tech blog at [url=]Las Vegas Computer Repair[/url]

    You say many strange things. Another new one you say now is that I really believe I "have an issue that is in some way different than the problem we all face". On which can you base this? I very definitely do not believe this. Quite the contrary. I believe at least very many, perhaps indeed all, have a similar issue.
