Google Translate gets 24 new languages

Google Translate is enriched and expands its service with 24 languages. The Mountain View company states that these languages ​​are spoken by more than 300 million people worldwide.

In 2006, Google launched its Google Translate service, which allows users to quickly translate words or phrases into many languages. The service is totally free and easily accessible as it is possible to type a word and then “in English/Spanish” or “translation” in the Google search bar to quickly find the translation.

Google announces this today on his blog that he adds 24 languages ​​to its Google Translate catalog. The service now supports 133 languages ​​spoken around the world. Most of these languages ​​are little known to the general public, yet they are spoken by more than 300 million people around the world.
