Addis Abeba – Google announced that it has added 24 new languages to its translation platform, Google Translate, including Afan Oromo and Tigrinya. These 24 languages are spoken by over 300 million people, incorporating languages spoken by less than a million people to those spoken by 45 million people. 

Google stated that it added this new collection of languages to offer support to ‘languages with very large but underserved populations’, noting that most of these languages were located in Africa and the Indian subcontinent.
This new set of additions brings the total languages incorporated in the translation service up to 133. Google noted these newly added languages will be live starting today but will take a couple of days to reach users worldwide. AS
