Now when you enter a word or phrase into Google’s translation service you’ll be presented with an option to save that word or phrase into a personalized phrasebook for later reference.
The new Phrasebook feature allows you to easily create a personalized phrasebook with the language translations you want to memorize or that you tend to use frequently.
To use the new feature, you must be signed into your Google account. Saving new translations into Phrasebook is similar to the way you bookmark a web page in Google Chrome.
Saving Phrases to Phrasebook
Once you've entered your phrase and received a translation you like, hit the star icon ⭐ at the bottom of the translation window and it is automatically saved to Phrasebook.
To view your Phrasebook, just click on the little notebook icon 📓in the top right corner of Google Translate. This displays a list of your translated phrases and words, including audio pronunciations when available.
Your Phrasebook is also searchable, and you can filter your translations by language pairs such as English>French, English>Hebrew, or Russian>Spanish. In addition to helping you retain knowledge, the feature should make it quicker and easier to get translations you might need more often.
How Phrasebook Adds Value
With Google Translate, you can find the right thing to say, but you may not remember the translation at the right time, says Google. You might find yourself performing the same translation again and again, until you finally commit the translation to memory. Phrasebook for Google Translate jump starts this slow learning process by allowing you to save the most useful phrases to you, for easy reference later on, exactly when you need them, the company adds.
By revisiting the useful phrases in your Phrasebook from time to time, you can turn any brief translation into lasting knowledge.
