Google Translate for Android Now Speaks Spanish
Google today provided an update to its Translate product for the Android platform. The new version includes some user interface changes, but the most significant update is that it now supports Spanish in "Conversation Mode." With Conversation Mode, one person can speak English and their Android device will translate it into Spanish and read it aloud to a second person and vice versa. Google says that more languages will be added to the feature soon. Google Translate's Conversation Mode is still in alpha, and Google warns that a number of factors (accents, etc.) could prevent the software from performing properly. This feature is available to Android devices running 2.1 Eclair and up and will be enabled via a software update in the Android Market.

Hey, if I move to another country I'll take it upon myself to learn the language. I'm not hating. But it's insulting that some people have lived here for years and don't know a lick of English, and aren't teaching their kids English either. I'm not going to another country and force my language on them.
