Android - Why is my language not supported for Speech translations

Speech recognition is a totally different process than text translation. It requires a whole new set of data (hundreds 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.
