Jaipur: At Jaipur Literature Festival, Indian language received an encouragement when Google decided to host a “Love your language’’. The motive of the forum is to provide better representations to the Indian languages on the internet.

Google presented a statement in which the company said that they are aiming to provide better representation on the internet for some language. As it currently can translate 9 out 22 official Indian languages, it added that some of those 9 are less used on the internet.

Google has asked anyone who is passionate about the language to contribute to Google translate so that the company can boost the translation of Indian languages and increase the use on the internet.

Through the forum, Google will also try to inform people about the Google Translate.

Jaipur Literature Festival which started on Thursday and will continue till 25th is arguably the biggest literature festival of the country. It is important for the Indian language that there is a discussion about it.

English has always overshadowed the Indian language and it is now time that they get better representation. If this pattern has to be changed then there is a need from the government to encourage the vernacular languages and such festivals can be a big help in this.

A large number of youths go to JLF every year. It is one of those events that are extremely popular with youths and it was good to see that there was a push for Indian languages there.

Google last week signed a multi-year global licensing deal with Getty Images, allowing it to use Getty’s content within its various products and services. According to a report in The Verge, Google will make copyright attribution and disclaimers more prominent in image search results.

Now, users have to wait for a website to load and then scroll through it to find the image. “The change is essentially meant to frustrate users. Google has long been under fire from photographers and publishers who felt that image search allowed people to steal their pictures, and the removal of the view image button is one of many changes being made in response,” the report said.

Websites sometimes disable the ability to right-click, too, which would make it even harder for someone to grab a photo they’re looking for. “Fortunately, there’s still at least one way around it: if you right click, you can select “open image in new tab” or “view image” (or whatever your browser’s equivalent option is), and you’ll still open up the full-size picture,” the report added.

In addition to removing the ‘view image’ button, Google has also removed the ‘search by image’ button that appeared when people opened up an image.
