Google had introduced Google Neural Machine Translation System (GNMT), a system for machine-assisted language translation.This translates the entire sentences, not just phrase using a deep neural network. Last November the company had introduced 8 pair language pairs and Today they are expanding the support to three other languages: Hindi, Russian and Vietnamese.
The neural Machine Translation supported translation to and from English, German, French, Chinese, Spanish, Japanese, Turkish, Portuguese and Korean. This covers around one-third of world’s population covering a total of 35% of all Google Translate queries.In U.S the census data says that 1,292,448 people speak Vietnamese, 586,173 speak Hindi, and 836,171 speak Russian.Google will be adding more languages including Thai in the coming weeks.
As reported by New York Times in December there are around 500 million users using translate in need of 140 billion words per day. The expectation is that Google supporting the A.I based machine translation system will be completed by this year
Neural translation is more than the basic translational system as it is more accurate making it sound more like the way people speak and moreover it translates the whole sentence instead of taking part by part of each sentence. It also re-arranges and makes use of proper grammar by making the context more relevant.
The great news is that the new translations will go live today across the Google Translate Platform including online at translate.google.com. The translate.google.com is available through Google search and Google search app, and for iOS and Android users through Google Translate apps.
