Of the 500 million+ people who use Google Translate, more than 9 in 10 live outside the U.S. Weve talked with thousands of you in India, Indonesia, Brazil, and Thailand to learn what works and what doesn;t, and today we;re rolling out some big improvements. First, say hello toTap to Translateon Android. We know millions of you painstakingly copy-paste text between Google Translate and other apps. Now, you can just copy the text of a chat, comment, song lyric, etc. in whichever app you;re using, and a translation will pop up right theremdash;no need to switch apps:

Watch the videoto learn more. Tap to Translate works forall 103 of Google Translate languageson any Android phone running Jellybean (4.2) and above.

Next,Offline Modenow works on iOS, and joins Android in using small offline packages. We know that many of you found the previous packages too big to download on unreliable data connections or to keep on your phone limited storage. That why we shrunk them by 90 percent, to a much more manageable 25 MB each. Offline Mode is easy to set up: Just tap the arrow next to the language name to download the package for that language, and then you;ll be ready to do text translations whether you;re online or notmdash;and it works with Tap to Translate too. We;ve just added a Filipino language pack, bringing ourtotal number of offline languagesto 52.

With Tap to Translate, improved Offline Mode, we hope you;ll find the latest version of Google Translate a helpful companion. These updates are rolling out over the next few days.
