Google Translate Adds 10 New Languages

Google has added translation capabilities for 10 new languages to Google Translate, bringing the total to 23 languages. The newly featured languages include Bulgarian, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Finnish, Hindi, Norwegian, Polish, Romanian and Swedish.

In addition, you can now translate text and web pages as well as perform cross-language searches between any two languages that we offer. For example, it now supports Chinese translation to/from any of the languages (e.g., Chinese to French). So for those who will be following or attending the Olympics in Beijing this fall, you'll be able to more easily find and access content from local sources.

"Detect Language" option is also added to help you automatically identify the language of the text you're trying to translate. Keep in mind that the longer the text, the more accurate it will be. And for those of you who have embedded the Google Translate My Page gadget in your website to give it global reach, these new languages will automatically appear.

Developers can also take advantage of these new languages in our AJAX language API.
