Google Extends Neural Machine Translation to More Tongues
Google has updated its Google Translate service and made it possible to generate higher-quality translations for a handful of new languages. Specifically, Google has applied its neural machine translation technique to Hindi, Russian, and Vietnamese. This methodology translates entire sentences at a time, rather than individual words or smaller phrases. The results create more accurate translations that sound more natural and are better at conveying the intended meaning of the original content. Google has already applied neural machine translation to a number of other languages, such as Portuguese and Turkish. Google says it will apply neural machine translations to more languages over time. The improved Hindi, Russian, and Vietnamese is available thanks to an update on the web, as well as to the mobile Google Translate app for Android and iOS devices.
