NEW YORK, November 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
The mobile division of Babylon has announced the release of a new Android version of its free translation app, Babylon Translator. The new version provides users with a streamlined interface, an enhanced user experience including landscape mode, native support for tablets, and a host of innovative features.
For over 15 years, Babylon has been the leading name in translation. Babylon released its first free translation app for Android last year to much critical acclaim. The app allowed users, no matter where they were in the world, to have access to Babylon's translation services and proprietary dictionaries with a simple copy.
The second generation of its app is meant to be an evolutionary step in what the Company sees as the increasing reliance of users on mobile devices as their primary method of accessing information.
"More and more users are turning to their mobile devices, whether they are phones or tablets, for everything from reading the news and checking email to shopping and vacation planning. As a company we want to make sure that we are not simply responding to the way that people use technology, but standing in front of the trends and helping to define a new course," says Aviv Akler, Babylon Product Director.
"By offering language solutions for all platforms, Babylon now provides a translation tool that users can access at any time, anywhere. Babylon is proud to offer its most advanced app yet, more accurate and accessible to more markets," continued Akler.
Babylon's new app is designed to put translation technology only a touch away no matter if people are traveling, in a business meeting, or simply reading a book on their tablet.
Since it was founded in 1997, Babylon (TASE: BBYL) strives to break down the international language barrier with innovative, easy-to-use translation solutions. The Company is listed among the top 50 most popular websites worldwide, and has revolutionized the way people communicate across the globe.
