While most of these languages come from the African continent, some are spoken by millions of people, creating a communication bridge for an important global community.

It is emphasized that by breaking down language barriers, Google is enabling people to better understand the world, and it is stated that these newly added languages offer translation to approximately 8% of the world’s population. In particular, it is pointed out that even languages such as Manx, which were almost in danger of extinction, have been revived thanks to Google Translate.

In 2022, Google added 24 new languages using Zero-Shot Machine Translation technology, bringing the translation tool to a wider user base. Now, with PaLM 2, it is taking these efforts even further with the addition of 110 new languages.

In the future, they say, they will continue to support more language variants and comprehensively address spelling rules in collaboration with expert linguists and local speakers.

While Google Translate users have the opportunity to participate in a wider global communication network with the newly added languages, it is emphasized that this technology plays a critical role in preserving cultural diversity and linguistic diversity.
