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 4 to 5 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.aka.ms/MT.

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

  1. Marshallese Language Support for Microsoft Translator

    The Republic of the Marshall Islands is a nation made up of many islands in the Pacific Ocean. It makes up part of Micronesia, a larger island group made up of many different nations. The United States (US) provides subsidies, defense, and more to the islands, making it a nation in free association with the U.S.

    According to the 2010 census, there was 22,434 people of Marshallese origin living in the United States at that time, however that number has likely grown significantly. A recent estimate puts the number at closer to 30,000 in 2018.

    There are two main dialects…

  18. Українська літературна мова та її діалекти

    Оскільки Українська мова має близько 20ти діалектів, а ще є наближена й схожа по словотворенню й за граматичним складом з польською, чеською, словацькою та багатьма іншими видатними мовами слов'янського мовного басейну, вважаю за доцільне досліджувати, впроваджувати в мережевий обіг і вживати широко при перекладах розмаїті діалектизми, котрі нададуть перекладу шарму, гнучкості й розширять його колористичні можливості.

  20. Filipino (Tagalog) Speech - Philippines

    Good day from the Philippines!

    I am kindly proposing to you to add the Filipino (Tagalog) Speech Voice to the Voice packages of Microsoft Windows.

    Filipino is the national language of the Philippines and being used by more or less 109 million people, we use this as the primary language (and English is our secondary language). Moreover, Tagalog is used to communicate to our multilingual society. Broadcasters and other Mass Media Functions use this dialect to disseminate information to the country, and to our fellow Filipinos around the world. Not all Filipinos are good at English or at any other…
