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 are a community or organization working on creating a new language system for Microsoft Translator, reach out to custommt@microsoft.com for more information.

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. Formal vs informal

    I would like to be able to use the informal version of languages in translations, such as in French “vous” is formal whereas “tu” is informal.

  14. EN-GB to EN-US

    It would be great to get "translations" for different language localizations via either the /translate or the /dictionary apis. A simple web search shows that this is a wide-spread need that has few if any pre-built solutions.

    This would be useful for all variations of english as well as any other language with country-specific words such as spanish.
