Washington, June 22 (PTI): Google today introduced its translation services in five more Indian languages, including Bengali.
Beginning today, you can explore the linguistic diversity of the Indian sub-continent with Google translate, which now supports five new experimental alpha languages: Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Tamil and Telugu, Ashish Venugopal, research scientist at Google, said.
In India and Bangladesh alone, more than 500 million people speak these five languages, he said in a Google blog.
Since these languages have unique scripts, we have enabled a transliterated input method for those without Indian language keyboards, he said.
Google already supports translation services in Hindi, Marathi, Malayalam and Punjabi.
