Google Translate’s 'Star Wars' Easter Egg Adds Support For Aurebesh


"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" is opening in less than a month, and several companies are taking advantage of this. Google seems to be doing a good job so far, especially when it started offering support for Aurebesh, the writing system used in the fictional universe of "Star Wars."

Aurebesh is used to represent Galactic Basic, the spoken language most commonly used in the franchise. Through Google Translate, fans can now see how words are written in Aurebesh, or check out what a word or phrase written in Aurebesh is in English.

It's an interesting Google Translate Easter egg as it helps people understand the written "Star Wars" language. Dedicated fans may even write whole fan fiction novels in Aurebesh with the feature.

Google made the big announcement on its Twitter account with a link that leads to Google Translate.

For those who are not familiar with the hype, this is the second time Google has released something related to "Star Wars: The Force Awakens." Recently, the company also made it possible to add "Star Wars"-related themes to several Google apps and services. Users have the option of choosing between the Dark Side or the Light. Changes made to apps and services would reflect the side chosen.

With the new and exciting feature for Translate, Google is proving to be home to some of the most passionate "Star Wars" fans in the tech industry today.

"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" will open in theaters on Dec. 18. For those who can't wait that long, just spend some quality time using Google Translate to practice reading and writing in Aurebesh until the movie comes out. Who knows, there may be some written text in there.
