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.
