Microsoft Translator  announced support for 12 new languages and dialects. With this support, Microsoft Translator now supports a total of 103 languages covering 72% of the world’s population. The newly added languages are Bashkir, Dhivehi, Georgian, Kyrgyz, Macedonian, Mongolian (Cyrillic), Mongolian (Traditional), Tatar, Tibetan, Turkmen, Uyghur, and Uzbek (Latin).

“One hundred languages is a good milestone for us to achieve our ambition for everyone to be able to communicate regardless of the language they speak,” said Xuedong Huang, Microsoft technical fellow and Azure AI chief technology officer.

Google added Uyghur language support in February, which was widely welcomed by the Uyghur diaspora.
