Additionally, those with Marshmallow installed on their phones will be able to translate text without leaving their current app.

Here's everything you'll get with the latest version of Microsoft Translator:

  • Translate words within images - convert from 21 languages or choose automatic language detection
  • Select and translate text without leaving your current app! (Android 6.0+ only)
  • Download language packages to access translation services without Internet connectivity in 40+ languages including Arabic, Chinese, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese, and Korean.
  • Bug fixes

You'll find the update rolling out on the Google Play Store right now.
