Google Translate offline accuracy will be improving soon

Sometimes, when you travel, it may be difficult to find information. Operators like Project Fi and T-Mobile provide roaming at no additional cost, but even then, you may have to deal with uneven connectivity. Therefore, for those of us who visit foreign countries, Google Translator has offline support. It is expected that the quality of these translations from online translation will soon improve as Google delivers high-quality neural engine translation technology to the device for better offline use.

Google Translate offline accuracy will be improving soon

The news comes courtesy of a blog post published earlier. In case you weren't already familiar, Google's online translations already make use of neural machine translation (NMT). Like most machine-learning based systems they're partly magic, but in essence, they work by breaking out the act of translation to a contextual level—operating at the larger scale of phrases and sentences than mere words—then shuffling the result around for improved readability. This provides a less literal translation with better flow and improved grammar.

At just 35-45 MB, offline language sets don't take up much space, either. So with these new offline NMT-based translations, it's worth loading up before you take your next trip. According to Engadget, the feature is rolling out starting today, with most of us seeing it in the next day or two.

According to 9to5Google, updated translations will work with the following languages:

  1. Afrikaans
  2. Albanian
  3. Arabic
  4. Belarusian
  5. Bengali
  6. Bulgarian
  7. Catalan
  8. Chinese
  9. Creole
  10. Croatian
  11. Czech
  12. Danish
  13. Dutch
  14. English
  15. Esperanto
  16. Estonian
  17. Filipino
  18. Finnish
  19. French
  20. Galician
  21. Georgian
  22. German
  23. Greek
  24. Gujarati
  25. Haitian
  26. Hebrew
  27. Hindi
  28. Hungarian
  29. Icelandic
  30. Indonesian
  31. Irish
  32. Italian
  33. Jannada

  47. Russian
  48. Slovak
  49. Slovenian

  53. Tamil
  54. Telugu
  55. Thai
  56. Turkish
  57. Ukrainian
  58. Urdu

  60. Welsh

Based on the Blog post, the new offline translations are rolling out as part of an update to the downloadable language packages. In my own tests with versions of the app released over the last month (including the most recent release) and the examples Google provided, I wasn't able to trigger the new translations. But, I also don't have the language package updates yet. If Engadget is correct, most of us should see them soon.
