How do I get my language supported?

Text Languages:

We add new languages periodically. In the process of adding a new language to the automatic translation system, the most important learning material is existing high-quality translations—the same text in two languages.

A significant amount, typically 1+ million words of this type of text, is needed to build a reasonable-quality automatic translation system for a particular language pair. Find out how automatic translation works at www.microsofttranslator.com/AT

If you have access to this type of text, or to a community committed to adding a new language, we offer free use of the Microsoft Translator Hub. Languages such as Hmong, Maja, Otomi, Welsh, and even Klingon have been added to the Microsoft Translator service by using the Hub.

To see an example of how a community can use the Microsoft Translator Hub you can watch this Hmong community video. https://youtu.be/UnROjeEHqDE

Speech Languages

Speech recognition is a totally different process than translation. It requires a whole new set of data (hundred of hours of recorded audios and their associated transcriptions) and trainings of our machine learning based engines to become available. Therefore, we cannot always deliver speech recognition as quickly as new supported languages become available for Microsoft Translator.

We continue to release improvements to the quality of our existing languages and to expand on our coverage of languages from around the world so that more and more people can talk to the Microsoft Translator in their own language.

Stay tuned on our blog (www.aka.ms/Translatorblog), Facebook page (www.facebook.com/microsofttranslator), or Twitter feed (www.twitter.com/MStranslator) for updates to our language coverage.

For the up-to-date list of supported language please go to www.microsoft.com/translator/languages.aspx

If there is a language you would like to see added, you can let us know below. If someone has already mentioned the language you are interested in, you can cast an additional vote.

  1. Mauritian Creole - Mauritius

    There is Haitian creole but my relatives are mostly speak Mauritian creole. Mauritian Creole is broken French and used in Mauritius.

    Mauritian Creole or Morisyen is a French-based creole language spoken in Mauritius. In addition to the French base of the language, there are also a number of words from English and from the many African and South Asian languages that have been spoken on the island.

              • Gallego - Galician

                Teneis que agregar el idioma gallego, porque es un idioma muy hablado y no aparece en su traductor, sin embargo si aparece el catalán.
                Además el traductor de google si cuenta con el idioma gallego, y fue añadido al mismo tiempo que el catalan y el euskera hace ya muchos años.

                            • Белорусский

                              Добавьте белорусский язык, чтобы можно было на нём читать свой профиль, а также чтобы не возникало неполадки, будто бы это украинский язык. Белорусский язык сам по себе самостоятелен.

                              • It would be great to add support for English to Armenian, Armenian To English, Russian to Armenian, Armenian to Russian language pairs.

                                It would be great to add support for English to Armenian, Armenian To English, Russian to Armenian, Armenian to Russian language pairs. There is plenty of existing high-quality translations available, so I think lack of resources wouldn't be a problem.
