More Languages Added to Google Translate

By Africa S. Hands

From Inside Search:

We're adding 10 languages to Translate, bringing our total number of supported languages to 90. These 10 new languages will allow more than 200 million additional people to translate text to and from their native languages. These languages are available now on translate.google.com and will roll out soon to our mobile apps and to the built-in translation functionality in Chrome.

Africa gets more language coverage with Chichewa, Malagasy, and Sesotho.

In India and Southeast Asia, we are adding Malayalam, Myanmar, Sinhala, and Sundanese.

In Central Asia, we are adding Kazakh, Tajik, and Uzbek.
