Google just pushed out an update to the Google Translate app for Android that brings 14 new languages to the Conversation Mode speech-to-speech feature that was previously only supported in English and Spanish.

Languages included in the update– Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Turkish, Polish, Russian, French, Italian, German, Czech, Dutch, and Brazilian Portuguese. The updates also packs in a few other enhancements including the ability to edit your original speech recording before translating it. Other features include a personal dictionary for custom and unidentified words, and the ability to pinch to zoom the translation.

Tablet users running Android will definitely want to grab the update, as it also includes an optimized UI better suited for larger screens. You can grab the Google Translate update now for devices running Android 2.2 and up (if it isn’t live for you yet, keep checking, it will be soon).
