Will it be better than Google Translate? Apr 2

As far as I know, Google Translate always uses English for all translations. For example: If you want to translate from Spanish into Chinese, it will translate first into English and then into Chinese.

Do you know if Amazon Echo will directly translate between non-English languages?
