New Delhi: Google Translate, a multilingual statistical and neural machine translation service developed by Google, is adding support for five new languages including Odia for the first time in four years, bringing its total to 108 languages.
Besides Odia, four other languages added are Kinyarwanda, Tatar, Turkmen, and Uyghur.
“These languages, spoken by more than 75 million people worldwide, are the first languages we’ve added to Google Translate in four years, and expand the capabilities of Google Translate to 108 languages”, Google said in a statement.
“Millions of people around the world use Google Translate, whether in a verbal conversation, or while navigating a menu or reading a webpage online.
Translate learns from existing translations, which are most often found on the web”, the US-based search engine giant said.
“Languages without a lot of web content have traditionally been challenging to translate, but through advancements in our machine learning technology, coupled with active involvement of the Google Translate Community, we’ve added support for five languages: Kinyarwanda, Odia (Oriya), Tatar, Turkmen and Uyghur”, it said.
Translate supports both text translation and website translation for each of these languages.
