New from Google - Dictionary & Search Translation

Last week Google added a couple of new features to its services. Google now offers their own dictionary. The dictionary is available in twenty-eight languages.

Google also added a new search option. Users can now translate their search terms and search results without having to cut and paste into Google Translate. To use the new search translation, enter your search terms then select translate from the "more options" menu.













Applications for Education
The new search translation option could be useful for ESL students and students studying foreign languages. The dictionary option enables students to locate definitions of words in twenty-eight languages.
