Google has added twenty four languages to Google translate now supporting 133 languages around the globe. Google has updated eight Indian languages which includes Jammu’s Dogri as well.

Internet firm continues to increase the number of regional languages supported by its online multilingual translation service.

Other Indian languages, apart from Dogri which are added are Assamese, Bhojpuri, Sanskrit, Konkani, Maithili, Mizo and Meiteilon (Manipuri), taking the total number of Indian languages supported by the service to 19.

All the languages that have been added in the update will only be supported in the text translation feature but the company will be working on rolling out voice to text, camera mode and other features soon. “We are working on them, but they are not yet supported for all of these languages,” said Isaac Caswell, senior software engineer, Google Research.

Often the translations are words that people don’t know or don’t use on a regular basis, he said. “We are trying to understand (the problems) better, and hopefully get our model to shift towards more colloquial output rather than this old-fashioned or stilted type of thing. But we know there are other issues as well that we are trying to get our fingers on more closely,” he said.

The announcement was made at the annual Google conference I/O that began late on Wednesday night.
