Geek Tip: Use Google Translate While Traveling

Google has announced it has updated its automatic translation search to include single dictionary definitions. Up until now, the Google translation software has been handy for getting translations of complete sentences, paragraphs, and documents, but the new bilingual dictionary function means you will get translations for the many possible meanings a word might have.

This will not only be a great resource for smartphone totting travelers, but also language students who want to "cheat" on their vocab homework and look up words faster. With Google Translate if you want to know how to say "play" in Spanish, you can use our dictionary translation and learn that depending on the context it can be "jugar," "tocar," or "obra", among others. Test out Google Translate.

..I think the only reason I did most of my Spanish homework in high school was because of Google Translate. I owe it so much =)

I just got done playing with Google Translation BETA, and just like with any (especially online & FREE) machine translators be careful and realize that they don't anyways give contextually correct answers. ^=^;; Generally, I have noticed, since most of the online machine translator things I've tried using are produced by English speaking natives, the further the language you put into translate (into English) deviates from English grammatical rules, the more "funny" the translation might become. ^=^;; Not to say you shouldn't use them tho. They are quite handy at times! ;D
