As we inch closer to the release of Star Wars: Force Awakens, Google is keeping us excited about the much-awaited movie through several interesting Easter eggs. After adding a Star Wars credits themed Search, Google has added a new Easter egg to Translate, which lets you translate Aurebesh, the ancient Star Wars language.

For those unfamiliar, Aurebesh is an ancient written language in the Star Wars universe. Google took to Twitter to announce support for the ancient language saying, Not fluent in 6 million forms of communication? This might help. #ChooseYourSide. The 6 million forms of communication is a reference to the lovable C-3PO. Also Read - Google might launch its first smartwatch next year with these features
Clicking the link in the tweet will take you to Google Translate where the words May the force be with you is already translated to Aurebesh. You can type anything in English and see it translated to the ancient language.
Earlier this week, Google gave its Search a Star Wars makeover, wherein the search results appeared in the style of the movies opening credits. Before that, Google asked users to choose between the light and dark sides, and accordingly transformed the look of its services. So the background on Gmail, the progress bar and volume slider on YouTube as well as Google Maps got a Star Wars makeover.
If you still somehow have missed out on all the Star Wars buzz, The Force Awakens movie will hit the theaters next month.
