Google Translate has added 33 more languages to use when the user does not have access to the internet. Support for downloading languages should already be available to everyone who uses the app starting this week.
“We are happy to announce that we are expanding offline language functionality to 33 new languages. This allows users to download the languages of interest and translate text when they don’t have internet available,” .Says Keerthana V of Google.
The new languages available offline are less spoken. Some have only hundreds of thousands of native speakers, while others even reach the millions.
With the new addition, only 24 languages will be out of offline mode. Google Translate currently offers translations in 133 languages in its online version.
Check out the full list of new supported languages in Google Offline Translator:
- Hmong Province

It’s quite simple to download the languages to use them offline in Google Translate. Many of these languages have millions of native speakers. Zulu has over 12 million native speakers. So, the update could be very beneficial for those who don’t know the language and are visiting the place where that language is spoken. To get these new languages, you need to download the latest version of the Google Translate app.
