Google Translate can now visually translate 13 more languages

This week, VentureBeat reports that Google Translate apps can visually translate 13 new languages ​​using the camera on their smartphone.

In 2015, we added visual translation to translation apps that support 27 languages. Users can translate dinner menus and signs in real time, making international communication much easier. This week's announcement adds the number of languages ​​supported by adding Punjabi, Bengali, Vietnamese, Thai, Gujarati, Kannada, Nepali, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam to close to 50 languages.

The user navigates to the camera icon on the navigation app home screen. The app will then prompt you to sort the text you are about to translate and take a picture. The application then uses a machine learning technique known as Neural Machine Translation (NMT) to scan the text and then translate (hopefully correct) into the desired language.

New add-ons are available for iOS and Android versions of apps, and they've started shipping to devices yesterday.
