Microsoft Translator has added a new batch of African languages to the service of Translator, Microsoft’s rival to Google Translate, increasing the total number of supported languages to 124.
Four of the thirteen newly-added languages are indigenous to South Africa and its close neighbours. ChiShona, Hausa, Igbo, Kinyarwanda, Lingala, Luganda, Nyanja, Rundi, Sesotho, Sesotho sa Leboa, Setswana, Xhosa, and Yoruba are among the recently added languages.
335 million people on the African continent will now have easier access to Microsoft and Microsoft-supported services thanks to the expanded language support.
Users of Translator can add text translation for African languages to apps, websites, workflows, and tools; or use Translator’s Document Translation feature to translate complete documents, according to the company.
The service will also provide image translations and text-to-speech options for the additional languages.
