translate main 100747618 large - 6 Google Translate tips you need to start using

Decades ago, Star Trek introduced the idea of a “universal translator,” a small baton that let crew members converse with aliens in their native languages simply by flipping a switch. And now we’re almost there thanks to Google Translate.

This app isn’t part of the pre-installed loadout on most phones, but it’s indispensable when you travel. It’s so overflowing with features, in fact, you might not even realize everything it can do. So here are the six most awesome and useful things you can do with Google Translate on your smartphone.

Download offline languages

You won’t always have the best mobile data connection while traveling the world, so it’s a good idea to have an offline backup in Translate. The app can do basic translation without any internet access, as long as you remember to download the necessary files.

To cache languages offline, open the navigation menu and tap Offline translation. The several dozen languages supported in offline mode include the biggies like Spanish, German, and French, along with Romanian, Icelandic, Greek, and more. In offline mode, you cannot do conversational voice input, but typing and camera scanning both work normally. You can even have translations read with text-to-speech.

free up space on android - How to Free up Space in Android

These days phones typically come with at least 32GB of storage as standard, or perhaps 16GB if you’ve bought a budget model. But even that is easy enough to fill up when you get a bit too carried away with installing apps and taking photos and videos.

Even if you’ve not run into any storage issues just yet, managing your storage properly can help keep things ticking along nicely performance-wise.

(If you’re playing with such a tiny amount of internal storage that you’re getting the “insufficient storage available” message when you try to download an app or app update, and have already followed all our suggestions below, see our separate guide on how to clear Android’s cache.)

Without doubt the best way to free up space on Android is to perform a factory reset and start afresh. But setting things back up how you want them can take an awful lot of time, and you may lose precious photos, video and other files if you’ve not backed them up correctly.
