Google’s been flexing its translation powers lately, and why not — for transferring between at the least some languages, Google Translate is as shut as you can get to magic. A couple of customers have began seeing translation choices pop up on YouTube, each the online interface on desktops and the cellular app model.
The change seems to be server-side, so do not go on the lookout for an app replace if you wish to see it. Via our personal very appreciated tipsters, we have seen Google provide automated translation of English into Portuguese and English into Turkish. Those who’ve seen it have seen it in dramatic vogue: textual content of video titles, descriptions, and closed captions are translated mechanically.
YouTube is, by an order of magnitude, the preferred video web site on the net. Enabling automated translation on it will be an impressive boon to lots of of hundreds of thousands of customers, assuming Google rolls it out to the identical huge userbase it serves with Translate itself. It can be a win-win for Google and video followers.
