Google Translate has over time become a time-saver and a DIY tool for people across the world who find it difficult to understand foreign languages.

In the case of countries like India, which has several hundreds of languages, a tool like Google Translate becomes handy every now and then, especially considering the cross-country migration.

Now, Google has announced that it’s the offline translation and instant camera translation from English has added seven new Indian languages including Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu and Urdu.

According to the announcement made by Google, the user who requires one of the regional languages in Google Translate has to download a 30 MB file which will then equip the app to translate from English even in areas where there is no internet connectivity.

The users can also try the instant camera feature of Google Translate, but this feature only works for English. All that the user has to do is to point the camera towards English words that need to be translated.

Google has been trying to heavily localize their feature for the burgeoning Indian market and this has reflected in adding more local languages to its most downloaded apps such as Google Maps and Google Assistant.

Recently, Google had announced that its Google Map navigation will support Indic languages and the Google Keyboard will allow transliteration in Indic languages.

Google has even made its Android phones equipped with Hindi Speaking Google Assistant that can also understand the language.

All these latest moves by the search engine giant have to be looked upon as a step towards building a billion more users in India who speak local languages.
