Google Translate for Android adds offline support for 50 languages Google has announced today that it has added offline language support to its Google Translate app for Android.
The search giant says the new support is good for fifty languages ranging "from French and Spanish to Chinese and Arabic."

As a caveat, the company says the offline offerings are "less comprehensive" than if you were connected to the Internet but it should do fine if you need the occasional word.

To be able to use the service offline, you will need to download language packs from within the installed app.

The Google Translate app is free in the Google Play store.

... or the Babel fish from The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy. Most tablet computers even look like "The Guide" itself.

Or the telepathic field produced by the translation circuit in the Tardis Data Core.

Actually i think i remember Amit Singhal saying in october of last year it was the Star Trek communicator that was the inspiration for it in some article some place.
