Google has announced the addition of five new languages to Google Translate. Things from Oriya, Tatar, Turkmen, Uyghur and Kinyarwanda can now be translated on the service.
"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 have added support for five languages: Kinyarwanda, Odia (Oriya), Tatar, Turkmen and Uyghur," Isaac Caswell Software Engineer, Google Translate said in a statement on Wednesday.
All these new languages are supported both on text and website translations, Google said. Kinyarwanda, Tatar and Uyghur are specifically supported by the virtual keyboard input.
