Microsoft Translator Blog

Indonesian, Ukrainian and Vietnamese are now available!

What do Ukrainian, Vietnamese and Indonesian have in common? They all have very passionate communities that have for a while been encouraging our team to add support for these languages. A glance at the comments on this blog, and on our forums show the enthusiasm with which users have pursued adding these languages, and that has spurred our team on to work hard towards this goal.

We are proud to announce that with our latest release, we added these three languages to bring our total number languages to 35. The Microsoft Translator machine translation system can now deliver translations in the following languages:

Arabic French Latvian Swedish
Bulgarian German Lithuanian Thai
Chinese Simplified Greek Norwegian Turkish
Chinese Traditional Haitian Creole Polish Ukrainian
Czech Hebrew Portuguese Vietnamese
Danish Hungarian Romanian  
Dutch Indonesian Russian  
English Italian Slovak  
Estonian Japanese Slovenian  
Finnish Korean Spanish  

This means that you can use the Bing Translator text and web page translation functionality in all these languages.

You can also translate text and documents between these languages from within Office. To see these languages in your Office translation language list, you would need to have the LIP (Language Interface Pack) for that language installed. More details here.

Personally, I am quite excited at being able to follow what my friends are saying in these languages on Facebook and Twitter (by using the visual preview of the Internet Explorer accelerator)!

Once again, if you are part of our one of these three communities – congratulations on working with us to “ship” these new languages! We will continue working towards adding more languages in upcoming releases.

We will look forward to hearing from you (please email us at mtcont@microsoft.com). You can also interact with the community on our forums.
