Google Translate, software that translates words and phrases into over 50 languages, is now available for Apple’s iPhone and iPod Touch.
Users of handsets based on Google’s Android operating system have long been using Google Translate. But, iPhone and iPod touch received it only yesterday.
The new text & voice translation app is capable of accepting voice input in 15 languages, and translating a word or phrase into more than fifty languages.
Explaining the app, Google engineer Wenzhang Zhu wrote in a blog post, "For voice input, just press the microphone icon next to the text box and say what you want to translate."
Earlier in January, the California-based web search giant added new features to language translation app for Android-powered handsets to allow them to translate conversations instantly.
Figures released by market research firm comScore claim that Google's Android operating system outshined Apple’s iPhone in the final three months of last year.
