Google is expanding its service of the same name with a new translation function. With a transcription on the smartphone, the user should record spoken language and have it translated at the same time. The output occurs directly as a screen scroll, the user can then call up the text again.
At the start, the function is available for the languages German, English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Hindi and Thai. According to Google, users should receive them in the next few days after an update of the Android app. The provider does not specify when it will appear for other systems.
In addition, Google recommends that only one person speak in a quiet environment. For a conversation, on the other hand, users should use the long-standing conversation mode.
Google’s translator saw the light of day in 2006 and was only able to transmit text at the start. Initially only English and Arabic were available, the service now includes over 100 languages. The Translatotron module is now responsible for spoken language , which is supposed to translate it in real time and no longer works with a STT-TTS detour (speech-to-text, text-to-speech). ( fo )
