Google Translate adds 24 new languages



Google has announced that it will add 24 new languages ​​to its Google Translate translation tool. The announcement was made during the annual I/O conference, held this week. At this annual developer event, Google usually presents a good part of the new features that the company will incorporate in the coming months, and among other announcements, it was also reported that Google Maps adds an "invested view" of large cities.


Among the new languages ​​that reach Google Translate are some such as Sanskrit, Tsonga, Kurdish, Mizo and several languages ​​spoken by indigenous Americans such as Quechua, Guarani or Aymara. One of the incorporated languages, Assamese, has more than 25 million speakers in northeast India; and Maldivian, used in the Maldives, about 300,000.


According to Sundar Pichai, the CEO of Google, this expansion of the translation tool will allow the company to serve more than 300 million speakers worldwide. With these new 24 languages, Google's translation system is capable of translating a total of 133 languages.


Pichai himself assured at the conference that his company was developing an Artificial Intelligence system capable of recognizing the language in which a text is written with a small sample, and then translating it. Google admits that this algorithm still needs to be perfected, but hopes that it will soon be available to all users.


The last time Google added a new language pack to its translator was in 2020. Back then, the company added languages ​​like Turkmen, Uygur, and Odia. However, despite the extensive coverage that Google Translate already offers, there are still many languages ​​that its algorithm does not understand. It is estimated that more than 7,000 languages ​​are spoken in the world today. Google developers still have a lot of work to do.
