Google Translate Updated with Handwriting Recognition

Google Translate is a great tool for deciphering foreign languages on the go, and it’s getting better. With the addition of handwriting recognition in a new update, users now have the benefit of translating languages with characters not typically found on an English keyboard, such as Japanese and Chinese. Those two languages are joined by English, French, Italian, German, and Spanish in supporting the new feature. Text and voice input still figure to be a big part of using the app, but this latest wrinkle opens up a world of possibilities.
