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.

    Both Chinese Traditional and Chinese Simplified are available for offline use. The downloadable language packs for the Microsoft Translator app for iOS, Android, and Fire are the world’s first Deep Neural Network-powered offline translation engine. By downloading free offline packs, you can get near online-quality translations, even when you are not connected to the Internet.

    Thanks for your posts and votes on the Microsoft Translator forum.

    Danish is already available as an offline language.

    When you download the offline packs for Microsoft Translator, you can use the text translation feature and the image translation feature for that language offline.
    The speech feature and the voice-out feature will not be available offline.
    You can also access Phrasebooks and pinned translations offline as well. Pinned translations will show up in your Favorites phrasebook.

    Sincerely,

    Gwenda
