    Microsoft Translator supports over 100 languages and can be found in the Office, Bing Translator, and Microsoft Translator apps. There are now two more for you to enjoy.

    Zulu and Somali are the latest languages to be added to Microsoft Translator. Somali is a language spoken in the Horn of Africa, and Zulu is a language spoken in South Africa and one of the country’s eleven official languages.

    Users can now add text translations from both languages to their apps, websites, workflows, tools, and even documents, thanks to the addition of both languages. Furthermore, the Microsoft Translator can be used in conjunction with Cognitive Services to improve additional capabilities such as speech-to-text and image translation.

    Microsoft added two new languages to the Translator earlier this year: Inuinnaqtun and Romanized Inuktitut. Microsoft hopes that by adding new languages like these, it will be able to bridge the communication gap while also preserving endangered languages. Not to mention the fact that Microsoft recently improved the Translator by incorporating Z-code to reduce translation times.
