This functionality is now available on Google translate apps for iOS and Android, and via Google search.

Google Chrome

Google Maps
Google will now automatically add translation to local reviews on Google Maps, both on mobile and desktop. With the addition of this feature, millions of reviews from restaurants to cafes or hotel, will appear in your preferred language.

Google Search

This new experience supports transliteration so you don’t even need to switch to a Hindi keyboard for searching a word in English in the Google Search app. For instance, if you want to know more about the word Nirdeshak, you can type Nirdeshak ka matlab in search, and you'll instantly get to see word meaning and dictionary definitions on the search result page, including English translations.

Google says all these new translation improvements is to make the web more useful for Indian Language users.
