Google just announced that it's bringing offline language support to its Google Translate app for Android. The company allows offline translations for fifty languages "from French and Spanish to Chinese and Arabic." Google readily admits that the results you'll get offline are "less comprehensive" than when you've got a data connection, but offline support should be enough to provide key phrases in a pinch. To gain offline functionality, you'll need to download language packages from within the app, after which you can wander abroad with at least a basic translator in your pocket at all times. At its recent Galaxy S4 unveiling, Samsung — apparently not satisfied with Google's built-in offering — detailed a standalone language assistant called S Translator.

I updated mine, took about 10 minutes to download a single language pack.
It did not tell me how large english was, but German was 160Mb, Japanese was 171.32Mb.
