Google Translate

Short on updates at the moment because of a project in Norway, so just a quick one about the capabilities of the amazing Google Translate. It's frankly a tribute to the ingenuity of their developers and the community of linguists on the Web who've contributed, that Translate has developed from a fairly rudimentary dictionary to a functional, easy to understand translation tool. Frankly, anything that can make a Norwegian treatise on mobile network architecture readable is an achievement!

Hopefully the next step is voice recognition - that really would be something!

  1. There's rudimentary but working voice-to-voice translation for Android, including Norwegian - ask me to show you next time we speak. Trouble is, it'd cost you a fortune in data charges in Norway!
