Google Translate Gets Support for New Languages After Four Years

Posted on February 27, 2020 by Mehedi Hassan in Google with 2 Comments

Google Translate is finally getting support for new languages. Although Google Translate already supports a wide range of different languages, there are still some languages that the service does not yet support.

And believe it or not, it has been four years since Google Translate got support for a new language. That’s finally changing, though, with Google adding support for five new languages to Translate this week.

Google announced on Wednesday that Google Translate is getting support for Kinyarwanda, Odia (Oriya), Tatar, Turkmen and Uyghur. Support for these new languages was made possible by the Google Translate Community and machine learning, according to Google. Google says the company has also enabled support for virtual keyboard input for Kinyarwanda, Tatar and Uyghur.

These new languages are apparently spoken by more than 75 million people worldwide.

Google Translate now supports a total of 108 languages, which is a pretty staggering number.
