Google Translate now works within any app on Android


Google Translate just got way more useful on Android. A New ‘Tap to Translate’ feature lets you use translate text from any app.

It works by translating whatever is in your clipboard. For instance, when you copy text from a WhatsApp message, a little Translate bubble will pop up – click on this and you’ll see the translated text. From there you can also switch languages or make a new translation. Like the Facebook Messenger bubble.

Meanwhile, iOS users are getting Android’s Offline mode. Offline Mode will now use smaller translation packages, which should make them easier to download over weak mobile data connections.


The language packages are now 25MB each, which Google says is a 90 percent size reduction. You can enable offline languages by tapping the arrow next to the language name.

Finally, Google is adding Chinese to its Word Lens feature. If you’re not familiar, Word Lens basically translates live footage from your camera. You can point your phone at menus or street signs, for instance, and see the translated text magically replace the original.

The updates are rolling out to Android and iOS ‘over the next few days.’

This methodology requires the most effort to implement but it results in the most optimised recurring cost and will provide the best scalability for apps. This involves re-adapting the code of applications and the heavy use of SAAS solutions in order to replace existing hosted applications.


This method utilizes the power of  PAAS services, like transferring a database to an as-a-service model,  the use of containers for some apps or the use of network/security functions as a service. Greater scalability and lower cost of operation is achieved.

the migration of workloads from  to the cloud without changing the architecture. Machines get to keep their  OS and apps. This is the quickest and easy way to migrate, but since its  utilising IAAS, its is also the most expensive on the long term.
