Google Translate Now Comes with New Languages Supports
In the past, there was a problem to find an ample amount of online text with which to train its machine learning models. Another issue was sourcing enough human community members who could help Google refine the models.
A Company spokesperson said in a statement:
“Google Translate learns from existing translations found on the web, and when languages don’t have an abundance of web content, it’s been difficult for our system to support them effectively, however, due to recent advances in our machine learning technology, and active involvement from our Google Translate Community members, we’ve been able to add support for these languages.”
Initially, the update will start working for 1 percent of Google Translate users for testing purpose. But after that, the company will increase the user base across Android and iOS in the coming days.
Google Translate will be supporting both text translation and website translation for the five new languages. Moreover, it will also provide the virtual keyboard input support for Kinyarwanda, Tatar, and Uyghur.
