Luganda Added To Google Translate.

Luganda speakers are about to enjoy the internet more than ever as the Google translate feature will start supporting the language on top of other 23 new languages.

Google estimates that the language is spoken by over 20 million people in Uganda and Rwanda. This was announced at the recent annual developer conference, I/O 2022, where the search giant made a host of exciting new announcements for its products and services.

The translation feature uses a new machine learning technique. Google Translate has added 24 new languages to its translation service, taking the number of languages it supports to a total of 133. Among these 24 newly-added languages apart from Luganda (Uganda and Rwanda), 8 are in use in Africa.

The list includes Ewe (Ghana), Krio (Sierra Leone), Lingala (the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Republic of the Congo, Central African Republic, Angola, and the Republic of South Sudan), Oromo (Kenya & Ethiopia), Sepedi (South Africa), Tigrinya (Eritrea and Ethiopia), Tsonga (Eswatini, Mozambique, South Africa, and Zimbabwe) and Twi (Ghana).

The addition of these new languages including Luganda also presents a technical milestone for Google Translate since these are the first languages added using Zero-Shot Machine Translation.

This means Google can directly translate between language pairs unseen in training, and translate from one language
