Google Translate offers to improve translation quality

PanARMENIAN.Net - Google has introduced, or is at least trialing, a new feature that makes it easier for users to edit results in Google Translate, The Next Web reports.

As the unofficial Google Operating System blog notes, there’s now an ‘Improve This Translation’ button in the results pane that lets you edit the entire outcome.

When clicking this and making the editing, a message reads: “Your contribution will be used to improve translation quality and may be shown to users anonymously.”

Prior to this latest editing feature, users could already highlight and click individual words and phrases from the translated text and choose from an existing list of alternatives.
