    The company pointed out it has chosen commonly used terms over “perfectly translated words” to keep things simpler for sellers.

    The support for the Kannada language comes after Amazon rolled out similar support for Hindi and Tamil, which saw over 50,000 new Amazon sellers sign up on the Amazon marketplace in a language of their convenience, the company added.
