Google Translate with NTM technology now available offline
Google has announced that their Google Translate service with neural machine translation (NMT) technology will be available offline — on device.
Google’s neural machine translation (NMT) was introduced to Google Translate two years ago and significantly improved the accuracy of online translations. Now that it is available offline, the technology will run in the Google Translate apps directly on your Android or iOS device, so that you can get high-quality translations even when you don’t have access to an internet connection.
To try NMT offline translations, go to your Translate app on Android or iOS. If you’ve used offline translations before, you’ll see a banner on your home screen which will take you to the right place to update your offline files. If not, go to your offline translation settings and tap the arrow next to the language name to download the package for that language.
Google is rolling out the update in 59 languages over the next few days.
