(Inside Manila) Google has rolled out an update on its Translate apps that lets users get more accurate translations even without an Internet connection.


In 2016, Google had implemented “Neural Machine Translation” (NMT) to make its translation tool better than ever before. The technology giant is now introducing the said feature in its offline mode, and will run in the Google Translate app directly on Android and iOS devices. The NMT update will be rolled out in 59 languages, including Filipino.


"Offline translations can be useful when traveling to other countries without a local data plan, if you don’t have access to Internet, or if you just don’t want to use cellular data," Julie Cattiau, Translate apps product manager said in a blog post. “The change is rolling out to users in the next week with support for 50 different languages.” 





To access the offline translations in the Google Translate app, you will have to go to the Offline Translation settings, and then tapping the "arrow down" (Download button) next to the language name to download the entire package which will be around 35-45 MB.
