New Google Translate update brings word definitions and easy account switching
If you are a frequent user of Google Translate, you will be happy to know that the mobile application has just received an excellent update designed to make your life a little easier.
Perhaps the most important feature included in the new version of 5.8 is the addition of word definitions. This allows you to easily find the exact meaning of the individual words that you are translating. You can find a new feature at the bottom of the page, below in the “Alternative Translations” section.
As mentioned above, only single words can be defined, so putting whole phrases for translation will not do you any good. On the bright side, the section places the selected word in illustrative sentences to demonstrate Reviews of their use, and the definitions are given in the original language. For example, if you translate from Dutch to English, the definition will be displayed in Dutch.
In addition, Google Translate is finally getting a feature that is present in almost other Google applications – easy account switching. It works very much like one on your Gmail, which allows several accounts to be added and dial-up quickly interfering with one device.
