Google Translate adds Dhivehi to its platform

Global tech giant Google has added Dhivehi language among 23 other languages spoken by more than 300 million people to its Google Translate platform. The move now brings the total number of languages available on Google Translate to 133.

Google says the new languages also represent a technical milestone, explaining that they use a machine learning model which learns to translate into another language without ever seeing an example. The tech firm said it still needs to go a long way to complete Google Translate, noting there are about 7,000 languages spoken in the world. For years, Google Translate has helped break down language barriers and connect communities all over the world.

The inclusion of the Dhivehi in Google Translate is a major milestone and a step toward enhancing the use of the language.
