Breaking News : Google Translate completes 10 years; up from 2 to 103 languages!
Advertisement
#1
Google Translate has indeed come a long way. The service which began with support for just 2 languages, ten years ago now supports 103 languages and is used today by hundreds of millions of people worldwide every day.

More than just an app, Google’s Translate service helps connect communities and bridge barriers during tough times like what was witnessed and explored recently by Google during the migration crisis.

Another interesting fact is that more than 500 million people use Translate, and the most common translations are between English and Spanish, Arabic, Russian, Portuguese and Indonesian. All-in-all, Google translates an astounding 100 billion words on a normal day.

Surprisingly, Google Translates success can also be attributed to the Translate Community that helps the service improve and even add new languages to the system. The Community also helps validate the translations and Google says that few translations do go a long way.

And when it comes to languages there is indeed no other country that comes to mind other than India. And Google has indeed done its part by supporting 22 Indian languages. A recent addition was English to Hindi translation for the visual translation feature, which was added earlier this year.
