Google Translate will now distinguish between bass and bass

New Google Translate update


As revealed amid the company’s Live from Paris event, Google Translate is gaining a much-needed upgrade as it’s gaining what is arguably the most important translation metric: context.

With the power of AI, Google Translate will begin to provide more “contextual translation options,” complete with examples in the intended language. In the example given, the AI will be able to understand if you’re talking about ordering a bass (the fish) for dinner or ordering a bass (the instrument) for your band. The service will then provide sample sentences for each translation about a particular meaning.
