I think many, if not all, one way or another had to communicate with foreigners. It could be the seller on AliExpress, a colleague from a foreign branch, or the German whom you met in the tavern in the Lithuanian Kaunas. In such cases, always as the language of communication the English, even if neither one nor the other side don’t really know him. Therefore, in correspondence, as a rule, is the Google translator, which translates your message for a foreigner, and his message is for you. It is not very convenient. But I know how to simplify things.
The use of an interpreter in the correspondence, apart from the fact that spends your time because of the need here and there to copy the translated text, so also works as a voice message here is absolutely inapplicable. And yet, to dictate a message would be far more comfortable than typing it on the keyboard, and then throw in a translator and then copy back to the messenger. Google realized that such a communication, many people are not satisfied, and suggested a super-cool solution.
How to translate your posts
In the Gboard there was a mode of translation of the dictated messages in real time. However, it does not simply translate a voice message into the text, and translates it to your chosen language. Meaning you can dictate something in Russian, and a built-in translator transcribes your speech and display the result in a foreign language. You have no idea how much this feature can save time. But many of its existence would not even know because Google didn’t think to bring the appropriate button in a prominent place.
Translating messages in instant messengers
- Go this link and download the latest build Gboard;
- Install the APK file (it will replace the already installed version of Gboard);
- Go to any messenger and tap the three dots on the keyboard (above the alphanumeric layout);
- Select “Transfer” and then the language pair;
- Dictate the text, check the translation and send the message.
How set in stone to translate messages to text
Thus it is very convenient to communicate with foreigners or to demonstrate deep knowledge in any of the languages of the monolingual interlocutors. Anyway, a couple Russian-English translation is pretty accurate. The algorithms of the translator select the relevant analogues of words and linguistic structures in a foreign language, which – at least, if not much wiser – it seems that the translated text was originally written in the target language
In the case that transfer is not needed, but you want to be able to dictate messages by voice, but to send them in text format, you will need another function Gboard. It’s called “Dictation”. To do this go to chat with someone, and on the keyboard hit the microphone button to the right of the three points. Dictate the content of the message, check your interpretation and then send it. If necessary, you can put punctuation manually, or you can call them also at the dictation, but, in my opinion, it is not so convenient because it is confusing.
