Google Translate to Add Support for 5 More Languages

Google Translate adds support for five new languages

US based search engine giant Google has announced that it is adding support for five new languages to its translation service. This is the latest news.

Now one can finally translate things from Kinyarwanda, Odia, Tatar, Turkmen and Uyghur.

“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.
