Google has given its Android Translate app a facelift and introduced some changes and improvements to its incredible translation tool.

Google Translate already offers the ability to translate a number of languages from one to another, from single words to entire phrases. The web based version can translate an entire web site, while the app allows you to voice capture words to translate and even translate incoming text messages.

Now, the app has an easier way to select the original and target language and a new conversation mode with real time translations by voice (although it’s currently limited to English and Spanish).

Google Translate supports 53 languages and voice input for 15 languages.
