Google I/O 2022: Google Translate adds support 24 New Languages
Google Translate is a computer program that provides translations of languages by using machine learning. It offers a web interface, mobile apps for Android and iOS, and an API that developers can use to build translation applications. Google Translate is a free service and it is available in over 100 languages.
We’re adding 24 new languages to Google Translate — the first using a breakthrough machine learning approach called Zero-Shot Machine Translation, where the model learns a new language without ever seeing a direct translation of it. #GoogleIO https://t.co/5Imnj6ff1E

Google Translate has been used for a wide range of purposes, including translation of documents, websites, and emails; interpretation (conversation mode) of two people speaking different languages; automatic text recognition; detection of the language of text passages; and language education.
It is a free online translation service, that can translate text and web pages into languages.
