Bhubaneswar: Used by millions across the world, Google Translate has now added Odia to its list of supported languages. A major step towards promoting digital literacy in our native language & to help millions of non-speakers embrace it.
With the Google reportedly announcing that it is adding support for five new languages to its translation service, one can now make translations from Odia, apart from Kinyarwanda, Tatar, Turkmen and Uyghur.
It has been made possible despite the difficulties to translate the languages without a lot of web contents.
Notably, Kinyarwanda is the official language of Rwanda; Tatar is spoken primarily in Russia, Ukraine and Uzbekistan; Turkmen is the official language of Turkmenistan and Uyghur is spoken by a little over one crore people.
