updated 10:20 am EDT, Thu April 12, 2012

Kindle Touch offers Bing powered translations

Amazon has a hefty update available for the Kindle Touch. The upgrade to 5.1, released today, enables switching from portrait to landscape orientation and Bing powered language translation of highlighted text.

The Kindle Touch update also supports US and UK English, French, German, Spanish, Italian and Brazilian Portuguese. It offers automatic word suggestion when typing, and sharing on Facebook and Twitter.

Some of these changes are in preparation of shipping the Kindle Touch to Europe at the end of this month, where it will sell for 169 ($270) with 3G and 109 ($174) for Wi-Fi only.

The 5.1 update can be downloaded from Amazon's website with on-device updates due in the near future.
