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.

  4. Add breton language - Brittany

    Breton is a Celtic language (ISO 639-1 br) spoken by more than 200,000 people in Brittany, there are about 17,000 children every year who learn Breton in bilingual schools (French / Breton) or entirely in Breton. The Breton language has a large literature, ancient and modern texts, and many media (radio, TV shows ...).

    Breton is a language very present on the web, many tools or site offer Breton like Google, Facebook, Wikipedia, Skype, Firefox, Wordpress, but Microsoft Translator does not yet support Breton and this causes many problems on the platforms like Twitter who use this Microsoft's tool.
