Google Translate gets Phrasebook syncing for its 70 languages, and more updates
Translate has also added a slew of languages to its camera-input feature, which lets you scan text with your device's camera and translate. This feature first arrived last August with support for Czech, Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Turkish; and, now Google has added another 16 languages: Bulgarian, Catalan, Danish, Estonian, Finnish, Croatian, Hungarian, Indonesian, Icelandic, Lithuanian, Latvian, Norwegian, Romanian, Slovak, Slovenian, and Swedish.
But, the star of the recent updates to the app is Phrasebook syncing. When using Translate, either with text, voice, or optical input, there has been an option to save phrases into your Phrasebook for easy access later. Now, Google Translate lets you sign in to your Google account and sync your Phrasebook between devices.
Seeing as how the update is only for Android, that means syncing between Android devices right now, but don't be surprised if the update hits iOS soon enough as well.
