Google Translate Improves Offline Translations with NMT System

Two years ago Google Translate introduced the feature of Offline Translation, along with the addition of neural machine system to improve the accuracy of Google’s online translation. At that time the offline translations were phrase-based, and poorer than the online ones that use the machine learning-powered systems in the cloud.

Now Google is rolling out the offline neural machine translation (NMT) support for up to 59 languages in its Translate apps. Powered with on-device artificial intelligence, Google Translate for iOS and Android can provide high-quality translations with the downloaded offline languages when users don’t have access to an Internet connection.

Google Translate Improves Offline Translations with NMT System

According to the search giant, the NMT technology “uses broader context to help determine the most relevant translation, which it then rearranges and adjusts to sound more like a real person speaking with proper grammar”. Instead of translating piece by piece, the NMT system can translate whole sentences at a time, and as a result, the translated paragraphs and articles will be more smoother and easier to read.
