Google is adding support for 24 new languages to its Translate tool, the company announced today during its I/O 2022 developer conference. Among the newly available languages are Sanskrit, Tsongae and Sorani Kurdish.

Pichai credited the breakthrough to a new monolingual AI learning approach where Google’s translation algorithm learns how to translate a language without ever seeing a translation of it.
