Google Translate has to be one of the most useful divisions of the search engine. Google Translator offers translation features for every language available. This has not only given a push to overcome the language barrier, but it has also taken part in extending the boundary of knowledge overall.
Furthermore, in January, Google announced the Google Translator’s new transcription feature. This new Google feature had enabled its users to translate spoken words directly and in real time, without any detail in processing. Google was offering a few of the basic and widely spoken languages to be translated in real-time first. Some of them include English, French, German, Hindi, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Thai. Any of these languages could be spoken aloud and translated via the new transcription feature to any one of the other available languages.
The addition of this new AI-powered feature was indeed revolutionary, making it easier for a traveler to navigate through and communicate with other people in a foreign land. Furthermore, this will work live for speeches, lectures, and other spoken word events and from pre-recorded audio, too. The idea was implemented and the update rolled out to the Android users in March only. It has been only two months since the transcription feature was added. It was thought that and was promised by Google that over time, they will try to include more languages for this. The search-engine giant is currently working on a new feature for the transcription feature of Google Translate.
Famous reverse-engineer Wong M. Jane tweeted a screenshot that Google Translator is actually working on a save the transcript feature. The user’s history of translating words or sentences now can be saved for future use if the user permits so. It will fall under a new ‘Save Transcripts’ option, clicking which the user can see their saved history and the translation of it.
Wong M Jane did not say anything further about when the feature will go live, but we have to assume that it would take Google sometime before they can fully test it, and make it available for everyone.
