Google has updated its Translate service with support for more languages, including Marathi. The five new languages that have been added are: Bosnian, Cebuano, Hmong, Javanese, Marathi. Now Google Translate supports more than 70 languages.
With the inclusion of Marathi, Google now supports eight Indian languages – Bengali, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Tamil, Telugu and Urdu. Google says Marathi is spoken in India and has 73 million native speakers.
“If you took a quick snapshot of content available on the web, you might think that everyone around the world spoke English, Chinese, French or Spanish. But in fact, millions of people around the world speak an incredible array of languages that currently have a small presence across the web,” says Google in a blog post.
“Google Translate helps bridge the divide between the content available online and people’s ability to access that information. Starting today, you can translate another five languages using Google, which combined are spoken by more than 183 million people around the globe.”
Users can access Translate via the web at https://translate.google.com, on your Android or iOS device, or via Chrome and in Gmail.
