Google improves translation service.

Google has recently improved its Google Translate service by adding 10 languages plus useful new features. Jeff Chin, product manager at Google says that the Google Research team is happy about the improved service as it was one of the hardest tasks faced.

In total Google Translate now features 23 languages including Bulgarian, Czech, Finnish, Polish and other new features. One new feature is the ability to also translate text and web pages.

Probably the most useful feature added to Google Translate anyone following or attending the Olympics in Beijing this year is the ability to perform cross-language searches. This means that Chinese can be translated into any other language and visa-versa.
