Google has announced that it will offer free machine-learning translation for Android apps.

The service will enable developers to bring their apps to as many people as possible, without incurring significant additional costs.

At launch, seven languages are supported:

  • Chinese (Simplified)
  • French
  • German
  • Indonesian
  • Japanese
  • Portuguese
  • Spanish

Google Translate’s transformer-based language models will be used for accurate translation into the supported languages.

Developers will be able to access the service in the Play Console. To get started, developers only need to upload their app’s strings in their primary language. The service will then translate them into whatever languages they select. 

The program is currently in early access and developers can sign up here to be among the first to try it.
