Google Translate adds handwriting input, seven new languages

Google has updated its Google Translate app for iOS to version 2.0.0 - the first change to the app in a year and a half. Google Translate is still free and is available for download from the App Store.

Google Translate helps you translate text between more than 70 languages. You can listen to your translations spoken aloud, directly translate speech and handwriting, add favorites for quick access offline and view dictionary results for words and phrases.

New in version 2.0.0 is support for Bosnian, Cebuano, Hmong, Javanese, Khmer, Lao and Marathi. The user interface has been updated, and handwriting input has been added, allowing you to write words with your finger, to enter text for 49 languages.
