Microsoft Adding Two More Indian Languages To Translate 

Microsoft Translator now supports the two new Indian languages of Chhattisgarhi and Manipuri, according to a recent announcement from Microsoft India. With the most recent release, Microsoft Translator now covers more than 95% of the population in India with support for 20 official Indian languages: Assamese, Bengali, Bodo, Dogri, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Kashmiri, Konkani, Maithili, Malayalam, Manipuri, Marathi, Nepali, Odia, Punjabi, Sindhi, Tamil, Telugu, and Urdu.

The fact that Microsoft is expanding beyond official languages shows how committed they are to democratizing technology. The incorporation of Chhattisgarhi and Manipuri demonstrates Microsoft's dedication to bolstering and enabling India's linguistic variety via its cutting-edge language technologies and solutions.

Azure AI Translator expands prospects for improved education, governance, communication, economic development, and cultural preservation in addition to improving computing accessibility in official languages.

Rajiv Kumar, managing director – Microsoft India, said, “We truly believe in the power of technology to empower every person on the planet, providing people and communities access to information and opportunities and creating a positive impact in their lives. We are proud to announce the addition of Manipuri and Chhattisgarhi languages in Microsoft Translator that broadens our reach and coverage of India’s linguistic and cultural diversity. We strive to make a profound impact through our products, leveraging advanced AI technologies that foster social inclusion and collaboration without barriers, contributing to India’s inclusive economic growth.

About 16 million people in the states of Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Odisha, and Chhattisgarh speak Chhattisgarhi. About 3 million people in the state of Manipur, as well as some populations in Assam, Tripura, and select areas of Bangladesh and Myanmar, speak Manipuri. Microsoft is still dedicated to developing language technology and is always refining its translation models to meet both user demands and technological developments.

Deep neural networks, a type of artificial intelligence that can learn from massive volumes of data and generate translations that seem natural, are the brains of Microsoft Translator. Translations produced by these neural networks are more precise and fluid because they are able to grasp the subtleties and contexts of many languages.

Transliteration, which translates text from one script to another so that users can read and write in their preferred language, is another feature that Microsoft Translator provides.
