Google Translate gets offline support for 50 languages
It's been a while since we've seen an update to Google's Translate app, but today brought a pretty big update. The update was pushed out this morning and it brought with it a new option to download language packs to be used for offline translations. That alone is pretty impressive, but even better: there are 50 language packs from which to choose.

This is a really nice update for anyone who likes to travel, because it means you no longer have to use a data plan to get your translations. So, no more data roaming, or paying for extra data while you travel. It’s also really nice for tablet users who may not have a data connection anyway.

After you update, just check the menu in the top right to download any language packs you may want. If you want to grab Google Translate, it’s available for free in the Google Play Store.

I tried, it works fine, you can also hear the pronunciation offline. Very good!
