Google has fleshed out their Translate service by adding a total of 13 new languages today, covering an additional 120 million people across the globe. That means Translate has hit an important milestone and now works with over 100 languages worldwide.
The new languages introduced are Amharic, Corsican, Frisian, Kyrgyz, Hawaiian, Kurdish (Kurmanji), Luxembourgish, Samoan, Scots Gaelic, Shona, Sindhi, Pashto and Xhosa. Not only of some of these languages extremely prevalent in other parts of the world, but some of them have some major historical significance, too. Corsican, for example, was Napoleon’s first language, while Luxembourgish is the last official EU language that Translate needed to integrate.
Google has posted some other interesting facts about these languages, as well as the process of adding a new language to Google Translate. If you’re interested, you can check it out at the link below. Otherwise, hit the Play Store to grab the updated version of the app.
