Google Translate becomes more powerful with Neural Machine Translation technolog

In an announcement made at a recent press event held in San Francisco, Google said that it is introducing Neural Machine Translation to its Google Translate language-translation tool, so as to make Translate more powerful and useful.

The Neural Machine Translation technology which Google has brought to its Translate tool underscores the use of advanced neural networks which translate whole sentences at a time, instead of reading phrase by phrase. As such, neural networks allow Google Translate to ensure that translations are based on the context of a sentence.
