Google Translate has now added Odia to its list of supported languages. Translation to Odia language will now be easy via the internet.
Google Translate is adding support for five new languages, bringing its total to 108 languages. The move marks the first addition of new languages to Google’s artificial intelligence-powered translation product in four years, the company says.
Odia has been added along with Kinyarwanda, Tatar, Turkmen, and Uyghur. The collective speaking population of all five languages is about 75 million around the globe and the new languages support both text and website translations, a company official said in a statement.
The Odia translation service was added following repeated demands from internet buffs and Odia speaking professionals from across the country and outside.
“Languages without having much web content have traditionally been challenging to translate. However, we have added support for five languages, including Odia, through advancements in our machine learning technology, coupled with the active involvement of the Google Translate Community,” the official added.
