Since 2009, the company has launched a total of 11 languages, bringing the
current number of languages supported by Google Translate to 63.

“Indic languages differ from English in many ways,
presenting several exciting challenges when developing their respective
translation systems. Indian languages often use the Subject Object Verb (SOV)
ordering to form sentences, unlike English, which uses Subject Verb Object
(SVO) ordering. You can expect translations for these new alpha languages to be
less fluent and include many more untranslated words than some of our more
mature languages—like Spanish or Chinese—which have much more of the web
content that powers our statistical machine translation approach. Despite these
challenges, we release alpha languages when we believe that they help people
better access the multilingual web. If you notice incorrect or missing
translations for any of our languages, please correct us; we enjoy learning from
our mistakes and your feedback helps us graduate new languages from alpha
status. If you’re a translator, you’ll also be able to take advantage of our
machine translated output when using the Google Translator Toolkit,” Ashish
Venugopal, research scientist, Google, has said in a blog post.
