Google Updated its Translate Site for the Web with Material Design Elements and Responsive Design

Google Translate desktop now sports a new look, complete with established Material Design elements and responsive design features…

It’s been twelve years since Google introduced its translation tool. During that time, it’s undergone various changes. When it debuted, the site only translated between English and Arabic. Today, the portal handles 30 trillion sentences every year, interpreting 103 different languages.

Google Translate Desktop Material Design Makeover Rolls Out

Now, the Material Design elements which first appeared back in October, are rolling out widely to the property. Moreover, it’s not only Material Design but also, features responsive design:

“The site’s new look is now consistent with other Google products, and updated labeling and typography make it easier to navigate. For instance, you’ve always been able to upload documents for translation, but now that feature is easier to find.”

Google also added labels to better organized saved translations for the multi-lingual:

“Now it’s even more convenient to save and organize important translations you regularly utilize or search for. We’ve added labels to each saved translation, so if you speak multiple languages, you can sort and group your translations with a single click.”

Plus, its new responsive design ensures the same experience, regardless of access device, be it on a smartphone, a tablet, or desktop. See the new interface at
