You may or may not like it, but Google Translate is one of those technologies that, despite all of its flaws, compensate in large part for them with fantastic functionality that has revolutionized the world as we know it today.
Could you imagine reading pages in Spanish, Russian, German, or Chinese a few years ago? How are you doing today?
True, Google Translate has a lot of room for improvement, but the service it delivers is generally fairly good, and enhancements have always been made. Keep in mind that it’s been over sixteen years since the Internet behemoth made it public. There were no smartphones available back then.
Well, Google Translate continues to develop, and the most recent version increases the number of languages supported. The program has added a total of 133 new languages, bringing the total number of languages supported by Google Translate to 133.
There’s a little bit of everything in the current batch of supported languages that Google Translate receives, from languages with less than a million speakers, such as Mizo, which originated in northeast India, to languages with more than 45 million speakers in central Africa, like Lingala. The whole list may be seen in an article published on the official Google blog.
However, We didn’t want to pass up the chance to mention a few languages that have been added to Google Translate and are popular in several of the nations where you frequently read us:
- Aymara, with about two million speakers spread between Bolivia, Chile, and Peru.
- Guarani, with about seven million speakers between Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, and Paraguay.
- Quechua, with about ten million speakers between Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and other countries in the area.
If you’re reading this from one of the nations listed above, you already know that Google Translate hasn’t forgotten about you. By the way, in case you’re interested in retrieving any translations you’ve done with your Google account, the service recently enabled access to the history of all the translations you’ve done.
