South Africans are focusing on learning during the lockdown, with some perhaps considering impromptu careers in craft brewing and homemade alcohol. As lockdown enters…
Google on Wednesday revealed that five new languages are now available on Google Translate, allowing more people around the world to benefit from the tool.
Thanks to “advancements” in machine learning, Translate now supports Kinyarwanda, Odia, Tatar, Turkmen and Uyghur, languages primarily spoken in Rwanda, India, and Central Asia, respectively.
According to Google, the addition of these languages means that Translate now supports 108 languages around the world.
“Translate supports both text translation and website translation for each of these languages,” the company added.
Additionally, Kinyarwanda, Tatar and Uyghur have virtual keyboard support on the platform too.
Back in January, Google also revealed that it’s working on a real-time transcribe tool for Translate as well, which will be extremely handy for intrepid travellers.
